Real-time custom courier rates

Our client gets custom rates with FedEx and would like to integrate these custom rates with checkout in real-time. We tried to use Easyship as a 3rd party integration, and they connect Fedex with Squarespace - but Easyship cannot integrate with those custom rates at checkout. Does anybody know how we can make this happen? Is there a 3rd party that can do this? Is there some code we can use?

 

With Easyship, Fedex sees the Squarespace activity in real-time, but there is no way to tell the customer what they should pay, except for the default Squarespace Fedex rates.

This isn't yet possible on Squarespace. Real-time rates are only available in the US at full retail rates, and aren't available elsewhere.

So if I understand you, Squarespace cannot accept shipping API's. And no 3rd party can help us?

Correct. 

Squarespace has a legacy solution for US-based users who are shipping domestically but it can only calculate real-time (non-discounted) shipping fees with FedEx, UPS, and USPS rates

They do provide an API (the Squarespace Orders API) that can be used to integrate with third party shipping extensions (Easyship, Shippo and so on) but it does not provide order information until after a customer has placed their order when the shipping charges must already have been charged, making it impossible for third parties to develop a solution for real-time rates.
