I need an x-cart mod that will produce a dazzle (Endicia) shipping label directly from the X-cat order manager interface.
X-cart is a PHP web store package that works with MYSQL database. The standard X-cart package allows me to print invoices, and generic shippign labels (containing the customer's name and address), but does not integrate directly with Dazzle.
Dazzle is the labeling application for Endicia, a leader internet postage provider. Through Dazzle, I can produce and print labels, with postage included, for all types of United States Postal service parcels and letters. Dazzle integrates with any application through a XML feed (Dazzle specifications included).
Right now, we copy and paste all customer information from our X-cart application to Dazzle, a tiresome procedure. We are looking to automate this.
I would like to have a "Print Dazzle Label" links a botton that will call for the new PHP Mod, directly from the order manager page. This mod would produce the XML feed and activate the Dazzle application (which will be installed on the same computer).
The Mod will obtain the shipping name and address directly form the order's record, and it will ask the user (shipping clerk) to enter the weight of the parcel. With this data, it will producte the Dazzle XML feed, and activate the Dazzle application. The shippign clerk will then confirm the label on Dazzle, and proceed to print such label.
Ideally, the new MOd will have a confirguration application where we would be able to enter our Dazzle account, password and local XML feed directory path.
All information regarding access to our X-cart server and database will be furnished upon request.
