Is there an add-on that calculates shipping?  I see a features request column on the Roadmap, but is there something basic available?

(Again, this is where a search bar on the ithemes.com site would come in handy -- I really can't believe that you don't have one, and make me submit support tickets to find things like this!  I know that's not your job, but you could pass along the feedback.  I NEVER develop a site without a search bar!)

Found a video at: http://ithemes.com/tutorials/exchange-add-on-simple-shipping/, but can't find the Simple Shipping Add-on on the Add-ons page...

Hey Bet,

If you scroll towards the bottom of the Add-ons page (in the admin Exchange menu in WordPress), it is bundled with Exchange.
Thanks,
Nikhil V.

Hi Bet,

Sorry for the frustration.  There is a search bar on the iThemes site.  There's not one on the homepage, but on the internal pages (like the blog page), you'll see the search box at the bottom of the sidebar:

For the type of information you're wanting, though, I think you'd be better off to search the forum.  We have various blog posts that give overviews of Exchange and the Exchange add-ons, but you'll find a lot more detailed information in the forum.  There is a search option in the forum in the top right corner:

There is not an add-on that calculates shipping.  The Simple Shipping add-on allows you to set a Flat Rate shipping cost and gives you the option to offer Free Shipping as well.

When you say the "Add-on Page," which one are you referring to?  The one in the dashboard on your site or the Exchange sales pages for add-ons?  Simple Shipping is a core add-on, so you'll find it in Exchange > Add-ons, towards the bottom of the page.  It won't show on ithemes.com/exchange/add-ons/ since it's not a premium add-on/

Let us know if you have any additional questions.  

Thanks,

Elise

Hi!  I did finally find it on the Exchange--Addons page of the admin dashboard.

My client is really wanting to having a shipping cost calculated.  Unfortunately, that might be a deal-breaker that means using another cart.  I see those Shipping requests on the Trello Roadmap-- any clues you can give me about the development schedule for UPS or USPS shipping costs calculated?

Hi Bet,

Unfortunately, I don't have a timeline for any of the development regarding shipping.  We understand if that means using an ecommerce plugin other than Exchange and just hope you'll keep it in mind for future projects.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.  

Thanks,

Elise
