    Compare Shipping Rates provides a SOAP API you can query in real time to retrieve a cheap shipping rates for international countries. This is free.
    Code it once, get many prices.

    Great, but shipping should still take into account a zip code. Integrate with Fedex, USP and DHL. It may cost $5.00 to ship my package in state, but it’s going to cost 3 times that to ship across the country. I’m not going to edit 50 state fields for 10 shipping ranges. :(

    Another FedEx Rate Hike…Here is what you can do about it.
    FedEx just announced it is raising prices by about 41% for one-third of their ground shipments. They’re doing this by charging for “box size” instead of “weight”. See article: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304655304579547632772245734?mg=reno64-wsj&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.wsj.com%2Farticle%2FSB10001424052702304655304579547632772245734.html

    Who is impacted and what can they do about it?
    Lighter weight products requiring a larger size box will cost more to ship. Product examples are diapers, paper towels, shoes, light toys, promotional materials, bulky household goods, fragile items requiring padded packaging, and many others. This increase will dramatically affect online retailers and small businesses the most. Merchants will have to choose to either raise product prices (sales will decrease), pass on shipping fees (cart abandonment will increase), or absorb the fee entirely (not competitive long-term).

    Is there a good option?
    Yes. While FedEx is raising rates, PostageAnywhere.com has lowered the price of shipping via USPS 2-Day Priority Mail with an innovative New Blue program now available at www.PostageAnywhere.com. The company already saves shippers about 20% from their previous bills with FedEx or UPS by giving them access to pricing designed to compete with market leaders such as Amazon. By offering 2-day service for less than FEDEX 5-day ground, PostageAnywhere.com users retain more profit and provide a better transit experience to their customers.
