Subject Re: Ship Cost Estimates for Drop Shipment
Date Mon, 04 Oct 2010 18:06:48 GMT
not to answer you question, but as a practical view.
The dropshipper is in zipcode that the shipping is not uniform to all 
customers it is hard to use shipping estimates exactly.
So I suggest you figure an average shipping cost that you won't loose 
money on. If you have more than one average them all.
For USPS, it is pretty easy since you just use the first class zone 8 or 
the flat rate shipping boxes, if you drop shipper uses them.

next I would just use the from to Geo based on shipper. this is the next 
least work to maintain.

The ShipmentServices.calcShipmentCostEstimate() needs to cutomized.
to use it the way you want.
