Hey, @pagexrage.

Thank you for joining the thread!  

I'd be happy to add you and the others to this feature request, so that it can help our Development Team prioritize new features for our platform. However, as feature requests often involve significant changes/updates to the platform, this isn't something that I can provide a time expectancy on when it will be available. That being said, if Shopify moves forward with this feature, you'll be able to find it on our changelog and announcements page. 

I'm open to any other feedback that you may have about this. Thanks again!

Hi Elias,

The reply is quite polite, but not quite helpful. Customers purchasing little trinkets online are being repellent by shipping prices. Not everyone has a luxury business online selling products for 1000 bucks per ounce so shipping costs will be an insignificant part of the total amount.

Shopify shipping calculation by weight (part of any basic plan) has standard "sample box" sent for "meagre" 14.20CAD in Canada. Adding Canada post small business app into shop chop the cost to 8.40CAD and became really weight-sensible (good). But the price is still based on BOX even if default package set to be soft envelope. At the same time there are no any limitations to create exact package via Canada post small business account directly and pay 2.40CAD instead of 8.40CAD though I can't bill the Customer for the right price in my store. Surely store visitors will not complete the purchase if shipping price is twice bigger than purchased products. and will abandon their carts.

This thread is hanging active since 2019. Is the solution THAT difficult for Shopify devs team so they can't resolve it for two years now?

I am also looking for this solution and i am surprised that since 2019 this STILL has not been added to shopify.... Is there any progress on this?

If Shopify gets a cut of all the charges that pass through Shopify Shipping, then that might explain why Canada Post Lettermail has not been set up in Shopify Shipping:  Someone in management just thinks the returns from the vigorish on the shipping charges don't justify the money spent on development.  I wonder just how many potential Shopify storeowners are being turned away because of this.  I am one for sure, if I can not find a solution.  We are looking into doing what we did 30 years ago, renting a postal meter, if that is still a thing.

Posted in 2019 and still not added? This is quite stressful for those of us who only require letter mail rates with canada post. Surely you guys can see why charging people $10+ to ship them a sticker is quite ridiculous.

I will also like Shopify to add discounted lettermail rates and an option to print lettermail customer labels.
