Dimensional Shipping is currently handled by one global box setting in Shipping Methods. This does not allow for stores that ship items in different size boxes. The box dimension setting in product details is only used to determine number of boxes based on qty but the box size used for real-time shipping calculation (as I confirmed with CS-Cart support) is still the dimensions in Shipping Method settings, not the product detail box dimensions. This is EXTREMELY troublesome. In addition, CS-Cart does not allow for combining different items into boxes as Big Commerce and many other vendors do. Here's how they do it.
And although X-Cart does not combine different products, AT LEAST they allow product detail box dimensions to override global shipping method setting.
Not only is CS-Cart functionality WAY BEHIND these similar products in shipping calculation, it has the potential to be so grossly incaccurate depending on what's in the cart that is it DANGEROUS and could make many sellers lose sales due to inacurrate shipping charges.
Essentially, the shipping calculation logic need to mimic the real world practices of sellers. It is currently far from that. Specifically to achieve this you need to add the following capabilities:
1. In Shipping Method settings allow specification of multiple box sizes (most sellers use different size boxes) and weight limit of each box.
2. Remove/Ignore min/max setting for product per box in product details.
3. Implement logic same logic as Big Commerce to calculate what size box to use to combine as many products in the cart as possible. Product Detail Box dimensions would need to be renamed from BOX size to PRODUCT SHIPPING SIZE INCLUDING package padding. Weight of product also needs to be entered for most accurate calculation. System would calculate minimum number of boxes necessary to ship total order. This is NOT Rocket Science as you can see Big Commerce is already doing it.
You can improve on Big Commerce by going one step further and calculate total weight to make sure products are not too heavy for the box weight limit. If too heavy, remove largest product and put in separate box and check weight for each box again. If still too heavy remove next largest item and put in separate box. Getting total shipping costs by getting real time calculation for actual dimensions of each box used.

Shipworks at http://shipworks.com/ works wiith eBay, Amazon and hopefully, CS-Cart. We do all of our order fullfullment from Shipworks for both Amazon and eBay, including shipworks automatically uploading all of the shipping, feedback and order fulfilled information. It also wonderfully intergrated with Stamps, Endicia and others. All fulfillment/shipping/email to customer/dropshippers are quick and easy. Thanks, Stephen22 votes

Add UPS SurePost (economy, residential, ground service) to the available UPS shipping methods.
UPS SurePost combines the consistency and reliability of the UPS Ground network with final delivery typically provided by the U.S. Postal Service.
If that method can't be added in the near future, is it possible to create a customized UPS shipping method that is integrated with UPS real-time-rates? Ideally, we could integrate with the existing UPS API and trigger the UPS SurePost method.11 votes
Need Shipping Method to calculate Insurance based on Order Total.
This needs to be in admi Shipping Methods with a CHECK-BOX to enable/disable it for the CUSTOMER side.
If enabled for the SM, the customer will see a CHECKBOX to add the insurance option to the order.
Yes I know that we can create a additiona Method that includes Insurance, but this is not a friendly way to do it. Unless there is a "CLONE" function for SM's then we need this Insurance functionality for shipping methods.10 votes

When shipping irregular large (products greater then 5,184 cubic inches or over 60 inches in any one direction and extra large irregular shape products greater then 20,000 cubic Inches a additional surcharge is assessed over and above the calculated shipping charges. Would like to have the ability within the shipping to provide variants for package size as there is already variants for Cost, Weight, and number of Items. And to have these surcharges show up as a separate line item in the checkout calculation.6 votes
Include FedEx One ship as a shipping service option4 votes
Fedex will be phasing out API in May of 2012 and supporting only xml Web Services. At that point API will no longer work they say. With API our shipping estimates are inaccurate due to surcharges like residential, DASS extended residential (suburbs), and fuel. I have verified that they support these things already in Web Services. Resi alone can be $4 per order! It's eating us alive! This change will have to be done by next year anyway so why not sooner for these other reasons?4 votes
When you use shipping rate by weight, it would be nice if you can overrule this rating with a free shipping above x costs in cart.
- 0 till 10 kg : 3,95 euro shipping costs
- above 10 kg : 6,95 euro shipping costs
- But when your total in cart is above 100 euro, shipping is free.
This is not possible now, but cs-cart told me to post it here.3 votes
Согласно документации API СДЭК рекомендуется печатать две квитанции на листе.
Ссылка на документ
Раздел 3.8 пункт 1.5
И действительно: для передачи отправления в СДЭК всего нужно 4 квитанции. То как сейчас генерируется квитанция на отправку в админ-панели CS-CART (одна на листе) не удобно. Приходится печатать 4 листа и половину выбрасывать в помойку. Не экологично.
Предлагаю исправить необходимый параметр в запросе API, чтобы на листе печатались 2 квитанции. Мелочь - а приятно.
Поле "Перевозчик" приходится присваивать вручную в каждом заказе в соответствии со способом доставки, который выбрал клиент, даже если этот способ доставки основан на автоматическом процессоре.
Нужно сделать так, чтобы "Перевозчик" заполнялся автоматически, если используется автоматический процессор доставки.3 votes
