    Please use the correct Canada Post Courier credentials to configure the module to successfully generate the shipment in the Odoo backend and on the website.

    2.) Correct destination and sender address

    The addresses entered in the order for both user/receiver and warehouse/sender should be valid entries to process the shipping successfully. The addresses and range from the source to the destination would depend upon the type of service availed from Canada Post Shipping by the Odoo admin.

    3.) A non-zero weight of the package

    The product added to Canada Post Shipping should not have zero as the listed weight in the Odoo otherwise the shipment generation request returns an error from Canada Post Shipping. To avoid this, the admin can also set a default weight to be automatically sent to the Canada Post Shipping in case of the product in case the listed weight is zero.

    4.) You need to put the product in a pack to generate a shipping label.

    Note: Please click on the test environment while testing the module. Only ‘Switch to production’ when you are ready to go Live.
