These Shipping Options are default and included on every online store for no extra cost:

Flat Rate Shipping

A flat rate (that you determine) is applied to all orders, regardless or the size of the order or where it’s being shipping.

Free Shipping

Offer free shipping to your customers. This can also be based on a minimum order amount.

Other Shipping options and “Calculators”:

Shipping Calculators rely on the weight and dimensions for the products that are being shipped. The product weights and dimension are entered into the product data table in the backend of each product.

The following companies offer shipping calculator functionality that can be integrated into your website. They all require purchasing special software, pricing from $150 for one-time software purchase and setup, please contact us for pricing.

Shipping Calculators estimate the amount of shipping costs that you’ll pay to ship the order to the address entered in the shopping cart.
