Hello, I'm using the built-in Royal Mail shipping extension in OC 2.3.0.2

I've just been updating the postage costs which changed Jan 1st and found that RM has added a new zone for America for International Tracked. Prices / data are available here https://www.royalmail.com/sites/royalma ... y-2021.pdf
I couldn't see that this had been mentioned yet, sorry if it has.

Are there any plans to update the extension? Or, please could I have a few pointers to make the necessary changes myself?
Thanks

Newbie

I've always found Royal Mail to be a pain. I now generally use the X-Shipping Pro extension. You can pretty much do anything you want with that. If you recreate the Royal Mail setup using that you can easily add in new zones, rates and services.

This has been mentioned before. viewtopic.php?f=198&t=221846

As a workaround you could use the weight based module for zone 3.

Thanks, I appreciate the reply and will take a look at the X-Shipping module. Weight based won't do it for my needs as postage for my products is a combination of dimensions, weight and value so for now I'll just have to treat USA as zone 2 and overcharge a bit.

Theres a free version. X-Shipping. You might find that's good enough. If not, go for X-Shipping Pro. :)
