It would be great if we would be able to display live shipping rates at WooCommerce Cart and Checkout pages utilizing Shipstation API without having to rely on third parties.

@Joshjungle Ive moved on to EasyShip even though it feels inferior in almost every way. I went simply for the in-cart calculations so that I dont have to mess with UPS accounts, a Stamps.com account, a Fedex account (etc) and then connect them to a third party plugin that would often give me issues. 

Shipstation could hire a couple developers to just build and maintain an "official" third party plugin and charge an additional subscription fee for that plugin or something. Id gladly pay $5-10 a month for it.

Yes, yes please add this feature. I am making money off shipping and I want those discounts offered to my customers. Please add this for WooCommerce.

Please add! I'm looking for alternative shipping software since this limits me so much!

Shipstation is really missing the ability to display live shipping rates at WooCommerce Cart and Checkout pages utilizing Shipstation API without having to rely on third parties. I feel like many others...it may be time to leave Shipstation, if they don't offer this very soon!

It feels like Shipstation is leaving the Woocommerce communities out to dry by not providing this. We could increase our conversions if we could serve shipstation rates.

I've since to moved on to a different service. Shipstation is better in every way but the lack of live rates... I guess emails spam is also an issue with Shipstation but there has apparently been some movement on that issue.

Can’t find any provider that actually serves the rates they all point you to the carrier plugins.

Another vote for this. As the holidays approach, I may need to shift elsewhere to cleanup excessive plugins that are slowing down our site just to get live rates from elsewhere. 

For the sake of argument, shipstation basic is $29/month, the 1Team SS plugin is free but $15.00/mo (or $79/year ($6.58/mo)) for all functionality we get within shipstation. So that's $35.58/mo IF you pay annually. 

The free version works but it loads tons of methods and names everything "shipstation" or "stamps.com" which is just leverage to force the pro version to get renaming and limiting methods capabilities.
