How To Get a Canada Post Merchant ID for your Online Shopping Cart Canada Post Module or Plug-In
I thought I would write a short blog post on how you can get a Canada Post Merchant ID so you can setup your online e-commerce shopping cart. Since I did not find the process to easy, after getting transferred back and forth for an hour and jumping through hoops I finally managed to get my merchant ID.
You will need a Canada Post Merchant ID Number for shopping cart plug-ins or modules such as the OpenCart, LiteCommerce and in my case the Shopp wordpress plugin. The Canada Post Modules or Plug-ins are used for online stores to calculate shipping costs in Canada with Canada Post’s services.
This service is completely free.
Step 1: Setup a small business account
Call Canada Post’s Venture One Small Business Department:
Ask to setup a small business account. They will give you an Account/User ID#, be sure to write this down. A business account also gives you better rates on shipping so your business can save some money.
Step 2: Visit Canada Post’s Business website:
Select the top option “My business has an existing relationship with Canada Post” Once there Create a User Name, Enter your Account # that you got in Step 1 and then create a password.
Step 3: Request a Merchant ID Number for online shopping cart.
Call Canada Post’s Sell Online Help Desk:
(Prompts: 1 for English, Enter Account Number followed by the # key, Dial 2/option two, follow prompt to talk with an operator)
Mention you are calling to setup a Sell Online Account so you can receive a Merchant ID# which you need for the online shopping cart module/plugin.
