Multiple Boxes (Fixed Size) - Define how many products can fit in a box (number), or calculate only by weight.
 
Multiple Boxes (Product Dimensions) - Define all the box sizes you use for shipping, assign dimensions to your products, and the module will automatically calculate (using an algorithm we developed) how many boxes are needed to fit all the products (always trying to use the smallest / lowest number of packages).

You can select which shipping options should be available.
 
Each shipping method can have its own Free Shipping Limit, Additional Fee, and Insurance.

Unfortunately not, Royal mail changed the way their website works which broke the module.

 

It looks like they are about to add a proper API, once that is available, we will look into updating our module.

Oh no. Went to your site last night to buy the module and could not find it. Now I know why :(

We are currently not working on it, but will hopefully pick it up in a couple of months, depending on demand for it.

I would also be very interested in a new module, particularly because Royal Mail is changing the way they do things and requires everyone to follow the changes in the next few months! That's why they launched the API, and is urging everyone to move from Online Business Account to Despatch Manager Online or shipping API now. It's actually causing a lot of headaches to small businesses.

I'd be interested in this too.

 

But does this module not do the same thing?

There doesn't seem to be many details on it or demos etc so I'm a bit nervous about buying it. Has anyone else used it?

Did you purchase this module? I'm interested to know if it works!

Yes, I did purchase it. It needed a few adjustments to get it working, but the developer was very helpful and sorted everything out within a day. It now works perfectly so I can highly recommend it.
