admin amount book buying cart click copies correct countries country covers create customers demand destination documentation don drop explains help hundreds information interface method next obtain options order override page payment plan price probably problem rate rules screen select seller settings ship shipping tab unit
I plan to use E-junkie to collect payment/shipping information from customers for my print on demand book.
I will then use the Createspace interface to drop ship my book to them.
The problem is, I have no idea how to collect the correct amount for shipping from the hundreds of country options.
If you go to this page: https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/
And click on the "Buying Copies" Tab, you can select a book quantity and a destination and it will tell you how much shipping costs.
But that's a pretty vast amount of information. How do I get all that into E-Junkie so it collects the right amount?
Anyone else do what I'm doing? How would you go about it?
Any advice welcome.

This help page explains our shipping calculation settings:
We don't have any way to query Createspace directly to obtain their exact shipping rate for each order, so you'd need to set up shipping calculation at our end to at least roughly match their shipping rates. You may want to see if Createspace can provide some documentation summarizing their shipping rates by country.
When you go to E-junkie Seller Admin > Cart Shipping Settings and click Next, you can create Shipping Rules. You would probably create one Rule to cover All Countries (this covers all of your chosen Shipping Destination countries, back on the first screen of Cart Shipping Settings), then make additional Rules for specific countries that would override the Rule for All Countries. I'm guessing these Rules would probably use the "Price per unit" calculation method, if Createspace charges a per-book flat shipping rate.
