    Do you provide any installation support? If so, how much does it cost?


    • Posted by Louis on October 26, 2009 at 6:36 pm

      Yes I do. I charge 1billable hour to complete the installation. I only ask that you perform your own backups prior to the installation. I can either perform the installation myself (if given access) or, I can walk you through the installation over the phone.

    Is there any demo available?

    Looks like a great answer a much needed module!

    Couple of questions:

    1- Does the rate always assume commercial delivery or could there be an option to request residential delivery rate?

    2- We’d be interested in a FedEx National version because we ship an equal amount of long-haul as shorter runs and FedEx National has much better rates on long haul


  4. Josh, it always assumes commercial delivery. It appears FedEx tacks on an additional $80 when the shipment is delivered to a to a residential address. Within the module, you have the option to stack additional charges (but this would be global to all freight rate requests).

    If there is enough interest, I can provide the residential delivery option as an second shipping option. You would then end up with two shipping rates (residential and commercial).

    Also, I’m currently working on a National LTL module. It should be available within the next few weeks.


  5. v1.2.0 has been released which adds many additional features. For details, see

    Also, the FedEx National LTL extension is now available. See


  6. does your extension publish fedex base rates or custom rates? we get fedex freight discount can your extension take care of the discount?


  7. Yes it does. You can enter in your your fedex account number within the extension’s configuration. Fedex will use your account number during the rate request (and the discount will be applied).


    • I am looking to purchase one of your extensions, but not sure which one to purchase? What is the difference between FedEx National LTL and FedEx Freight? We will need to send shipments via Truck throughout the United States and Canada.


      • FedEx purchased Watkins Motor Lines (a very large freight shipper) and re-branded it to FedEx National LTL. This brand is separate from their existing FedEx freight and so the rates and delivery times are different. Typically, FedEx Freight has faster transit times whereas FedEx LTL has cheaper rates.


  8. Yeah it works! After years of trying to get realtime fedex freight shipping on Network Solutions I finally have something that works, glad to be done with NS, I like magento much better,

    thanks for the module Louis!

    now for Fedex national,

    so when can we expect a UPS Freight Module?
    what about Old Dominion, Estes, Yellow Roadway, Conway, ha, UPS would be nice though to give some comparative shipping options,


    • Thank you for the great feedback!

      I do plan to work on a UPS Freight Module as there seems to be a lot of interest for it. Stayed tuned…

    Thank you so much for this!! I plan on purchasing one of your FedEx Freight Modules but I’m not exactly sure which on I need yet. My question is do either of these modules handle liftgate options? I would like to be able to allow the customer the choice of liftgate or no liftgate rate quotes. Any ideas?



    • Shane,

      Unfortunately, the current the extension will not provide a liftgate quote.

      You can try to make use of the ‘handling fee’ fields to put in a flat quote, but this not be very accurate as FedEx calculates their liftgate charge based off the weight of the shipment.

      “When FedEx Freight or FedEx National LTL provides liftgate service, the charge will be $5.15 per cwt, subject to a minimum charge of $76.00 and a maximum charge of $251.00.”

      If you need more details or are interested in having this option added to the existing extension, please get in touch with me via email.

    Just wondering if you had any plans to develop a Yellow Freight extension.


    • Jim,

      No, not at this time. If you want, send me some information concerning Yellow Freight and I’ll see if I can work into my schedule.


  11. Louis,

    You are doing a very good thing with these freight shipping integration extensions. You should be getting paid by UPS, FedEx, etc for all of your work helping them get business.

    The UPS freight integration XML is ridiculously complex and I consider myself a pretty saavy web guy. I’m not a programmer, but I have set up my entire Magneto store on my own. There are so many hoops to jump through and no one to talk to. At this point, I’ve given up on getting the UPS XML tools to work with Magento, although it appears Magento would work with the UPS XML if I could ever figure it out.

    Anyway, should I wait to buy a UPS freight extension when you develop one, or just set up a FedEx account and go with that extension? I need my site to product freight quotes pretty soon, since I’m losing money as we speak.



    • Hi Jeremy,

      Yes, I agree about the complexity of the UPS freight integration. I have the xml service working outside of Magento, but I am still a ways a way from getting it work from within Magento. I recommend going with the FedEx Freight or FedeEx LTL extensions.


  12. Is this extension tested on 1.4? I should have checked prior to purchase but it doesnt appear as if Magento is seeing the extension when enabled.



  13. Greetings Louis:

    We also just finished purchasing your fed Ex Freight Extension, and reading the above posts, confirmed that you have refreshed the extension for v.1.4.

    However, in that we have a project that we have been building over the last few months in v.1.3, we want to confirm that the extension has similarly been refreshed for v.1.3, as we care currently working in v

    Many thanks and we look forward to your reply!

    Best Regards, Jeffrey


  14. Hello, is this module still for sale? Wasn’t sure as the site wasn’t working properly. In any case I took the liberty of fixing your magento installation to enable the products. The categories were setup incorrectly and no products were available. Do you have a UPS module that fetches rates based on weight and box dimension LxHxW?


    • The module is still for sale. Can you let me know what was not working with the site?

      I have been working on a UPS module however I was not going to take the dimensions into consideration. I will however look into it.


  15. Posted by Mar on July 20, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    I just tested the store demo with 10 of the computers @ 250 lbs each. The freight estimate was $9,408.32. Seems a bit steep.


  16. Hi we need to know who to install your extension in our website please.


    • I can do the install for you. You just need to supply me with a temporary ftp account and access to your admin screen. Also, I recommend you first perform a backup (as with the installation of any Magento module).

      I charge one billable hour for the work.


  17. is it possible to configure magento with the fedex freight module to be available only when a customer orders a certain weight? I’m also gonna have fedex express and I don’t want my clients to have to option of shipping freight if they don’t meet the weight requirement.


    • Yes. The freight extension has a min weight setting while. As an example, you can set the min weight to 75lb so that Magento will only display this extension when the order weight exceeds 75lbs.


  18. works on magento ?


  19. Hi Louis,

    Will this work with enterprise edition? If so, what versions?




  20. Hi,
    Will this extension work with Magento and will it work with a South African subsidiary Supaswift? (



    • Yes, the extension will work with version 1.6. Unfortunately, FedEx’s freight xml service only applies to the US and Canada.


  21. Posted by Ryan on November 10, 2011 at 6:28 pm

    Finally purchased and installed this module. Louis provided excellent support throughout the entire process. The module is very light, doesn’t conflict with any of my other extensions, and is easily customizable to work perfectly into my site. Could not be more happy with how this went! (Magento Community

    Is this extension still supported in Magento EE 1.14?
