Is there a way to configure the UPS Realtime plugin to accept a Canadian Postal Code as the xMerchantShipZip?

Currently it will only accept US Zip Codes...

Or is there a Canadian version of the plugin?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Thanks, but the client really wants to use UPS for shipping.

I tested the UPS Realtime for shipping from the USA to Canada and it works great. The key is make sure you use the proper country code. For example CA instead of Canada. I have not tested Canada to the USA yet but I am sure it will work. This will cause an issue when the customer enters Canada instead of CA, but I am changing the country to a drop down box to solve this. Maybe (if not already done in Version 5) VP-ASP could make the Country box a drop down instead of open text.

Just for your information, shipping within and from Canada is far cheaper using the Postal service express service than UPS. Gets there just as fast and insured. Cross border and shipping within the US is cheaper with UPS. I also understand FedEx is really fighting for the business also in the US.
