Advanced Shipping Options

Extremely flexible configurations for shipping your company's products.

Our eCommerce platform offers extremely flexible configuration options for shipping your company's products. These options allow you to quote accurate rates for a vast array of products. Meanwhile, you have the flexibility to configure shipping to support your promotions, increase satisfaction and loyalty from repeat customers by offering custom shipping pricing, and increase conversion by allowing customers to choose the date and method that best suits their needs. Here are some of the things you can do with our eCommerce platform:

  • Quote real-time rates from UPS, FedEx, USPS, and GSO
  • Set shipping rates by Customer Type
  • Set rules for product distribution into certain box sizes by weight or quantity (i.e. 10lbs = box size A, or 10 products = box size A)
  • Override shipping rates for an individual product
  • Indicate that oversize products ship independently, and specify their box dimensions
  • Designate shipping zones with different rates
  • Offer free shipping at a threshold (i.e., weight, price, or quantity)

  • Indicate that a product ships with dry ice
  • Require that certain products (such as perishables) be sent with an expedited shipping method, while others can ship more slowly
  • Allow customers to choose their preferred delivery date for their order, (behind the scenes, this results from accurately combining your company's order processing time with the shipping carriers' transit time data)

  • Automatically prepare and print, or electronically submit customs documentation for international shipments
  • Accept COD with all funds or secure funds only
