Shipping Agent for Magento Configuration (Version 3.6 and Above)

Shipping Agent for Magento can be configured to change the way the Package Insurance Value is calculated and the Store from which to retrieve orders.

Insurance Value

By default the Shipping Agent will use the item's price to calculate the insurance value. You can configure the Shipping Agent to use the item's site cost as shown below.

The Cost for a product is recorded in the catalog but not in the order. That has two implications: First, if you change the cost in the catalog after the order is placed but before the order is downloaded, then the Shipping Agent will use the updated cost and not the cost at the time of the order. Second, if you delete the product from the catalog before the order is downloaded, the Shipping Agent will not be able to download the order.

Find this text in the shippingagent.ini file:
InsuranceValue = Price 

Change the value to "Cost" as shown here:
InsuranceValue = Cost

Send Shipment Notice (3.7 and above)

By default, the Shipping Agent for Magento will not send a shipment notice. To send a shipment notice, find this text in the shippingagent.ini file:
SendShipmentNotice = 0

Change the value to 1 (or true or on)
SendShipmentNotice = 1

Store ID

By default, the Shipping Agent for Magento will retrieve orders from all stores. To retrieve orders from a single store, find this text in the shippingagent.ini file:
StoreId =

Add any store ID or code:
StoreId = 1
