    This is my website. I have installed fedex module according to the steps mentioned. and i also tried all the code changes mentioned. Yet nothing about FEDEX appears on the checkout page.
    I still get:-
    “Sorry, online ordering is unavailable to this destination and/or weight. Please double check your destination details.”

    FEDEX is under External Shipping Calculator. Only when i enable one of the Internal Shipping Calculators – (Flat rate) the price calculation is displayed. Otherwise i the the above mentioned statement.

    Can you tell me what is wrong?

    I too need this newer version of fedex.php – I just purchase and downloaded this from the add-on WP ecommerce site. If you will email me, I will send you my copy of fedex.php so you can be sure to send me the most current one, thank you.

    I would appreciate some assistance with integrating fedex into the ecommerce plugin. I have added the files to the shipping folder but no calculator shows on the check out page…
