We've spent about 6 months and a lot of resources developing a shipping module for v7 and I've been debating on what to do with it. I have a few clients (including an e-commerce business I own) running it. I'd like to open source it but I'm nowhere near break even on the cost of building it. 

I'm considering putting together an indiegogo campaign for it. For hitting a basic milestone I'll release the code as-is, for higher ones I can add additional carriers, integrations, label styles, freight carriers, etc. Thoughts? 

Brief list of features:
- USPS, UPS, Fedex and about a dozen other international carriers through
- USPS through Stamps
- UPS Worldship XML and Datapac XML outputs
- webhook listener that updates tracking status' from easypost near real-time
- UPS Billing Audit (upload CSV of your bill) - work in progress but pretty close
- Automatic box selection based on product size using api
- Automatic box selection based on product/case rules
- Multiple shipping label template options (UPS thermal and right now). 
- Imports shipping method from OpenERP Magento connector. Exports tracking information back to Magento. 
- Emails customer tracking info (optionally) from OpenERP. 

Here's a video walkthrough of it.
