Download and Installing an EasyCart Extension
First, you must install all EasyCart extensions as new plugins. This is a very easy task with WordPress and we have a short guide here to get you started. Click Here to learn how to install a WordPress plugin and EasyCart Premium extensions.
To begin using Optimalship:
- Enter your export/import number in the setup box.
- Enter your country code (2 digit, e.g. US).
- Enter other optional options if you need it.
- You must be using Live Shipping Rates in the admin setup (WP EasyCart -> Settings-> Shipping Rates and select live shipping rates).
- You must also set up another form of live rates for domestic shipping (Optimalship is for international shipping only).
NOTE: Insurance can be setup as a minimum amount and a percentage of the merchandise sold. If the percentage is set to .01 (1%) and you sell $250 worth of merchandise, this will not exceed the minimum and instead will use $3.00 as the insurance amount. If you sell $450 worth of merchandise, this same setup will be $4.50 for insurance. Change these values in the setup as needed (this added in version 1.0.1).
