How Does this work?
Save a Fortune on Postage/Courier Costs! TAKE FULL CONTROL OVER YOUR SHIPPING OPTIONS - this module is a MUST for any Shipping Plan that involves any of the following:
- ship by weight, order total and/or number of items to anything from a single postcode to the whole world.
- restricting delivery to one “region”
- multiple delivery regions
- destination(s) defined by postcode
- a mix of methods (e.g if the total order value is greater than £X and the weight is less than Ykg)
Another stunning module from Conor at Ceon.net, this module will cater for just about any possible shipping configuration you can come up with! Full details are available at the Ceon website - and you can try it out for free.
The Advanced Shipper module allows individual products and/or entire product categories and/or all products from specific manufacturer(s) to have their own specific shipping rates!
There is no limit on the number of methods which can be defined, products/categories/manufacturers/the whole store can have multiple shipping methods if desired (E.g. “Royal Mail 2nd Class”, “Royal Mail Next Day” etc.)!
If there are various shipping options for the items within a customer's shopping cart, they are presented with all possible combinations of shipping methods for those items, so they can choose the method (combination) that best suits them!
For example, if a customer has a magazine in their cart as well as a bookcase, they can be offered the following options, which let them choose between normal or express delivery for the magazine while having the bookcase shipped via a pallet service:
Being able to specify exactly which products/categories/manufacturers use which method(s) makes it very easy indeed to set up almost any type of shipping arrangement, including complex drop-shipping arrangements etc., something most/all other Zen Cart shipping modules can't do.
In fact, very few shopping cart software packages, commercial and/or open source, can match Advanced Shipper's functionality as integrated with Zen Cart, never mind its ease of use!
NB. The price quoted does NOT include configuration of this module. The documentation is excellent, but if you prefer JSWEb will configure it for you at our usual hourly rate.
