What does Enhanced Shipper do?

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.xx and the weight is less than x.x kg)

This module will cater for just about any possible shipping configuration you can come up with!

How Does this work?

The Enhanced 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 choice 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 Enhanced Shipping's functionality as integrated with Zen Cart, never mind its ease of use!

NB. The price quoted does NOT include configuration of this module. JSWEb will configure it for you if you wish at our standard hourly rate.

Support and Upgrades
The module carries free technical Support and Upgrades from the date of the order whilst a valid license exists. This does not include any configuration of your own Shipping Plan that you may wish us to implement. We will be happy to do this for you, but it is billable at our standard hourly rate.

Note that whilst upgrades will be provided free of charge for self-installation under the Support and Upgrades service, should you wish us to implement the upgrade for you then there will be a charge for our time.

More Information

  • Don’t Make Customers Login to Get Shipping Rates: How would you feel if you went shopping on the internet and found that you had to login just to view shipping rates? Lousy, huh? It’s crucial to make this information easily accessible to avoid frustrating potential customers and losing sales.
  • Include Shipping Info on all Product Pages: The product info page is one of those pages where shipping questions often arise. Customers want to know shipping costs and delivery times before they decide to make a purchase. Including this information on every product page helps keep them informed and reduces cart abandonment.
  • Link to Shipping Page from Shopping Cart: In the shopping cart where customers select the shipping method, be sure to provide a direct link to your detailed shipping page. This helps customers find all the information they need without leaving their current shopping process, ensuring a smoother checkout experience.
  • Don’t Try to Make a Lot of Money off Shipping: Customers are savvy and can easily find shipping rates for similar items on competitor sites. Inflated shipping costs can drive them away. Be transparent and fair with your shipping charges to build trust and encourage repeat business.
  • Consider Offering Free Shipping at a Level Above your Average Order Value: If your average order value is £45, consider offering free shipping at £55 to incentivise customers to spend a bit more. This can help increase your average order value while making customers feel they are getting a better deal.
  • Show Delivery Estimates by Region: On your shipping page, show estimated delivery times based on the customer’s region. This helps set clear expectations and reduces uncertainty, making customers more likely to complete their purchase.
  • Ship Next Business Day as a Norm. Ship Express Orders Same Day: Customers want things fast. Shipping orders by the next business day, and same-day shipping for express orders, can significantly enhance customer satisfaction and encourage positive reviews and repeat business.
  • Provide Tracking Numbers: Providing tracking numbers for shipments is critical. This allows customers to monitor their packages and helps build trust in your service. Ensure that your system automatically sends out tracking information once an order is shipped.
  • Don’t Ignore or Point Fingers on Lost Shipments: If you ship any level of items over the internet, lost shipments are bound to happen at some time. Handle these situations proactively by assisting the customer in tracking down the package or offering a replacement or refund. Taking responsibility and solving the problem can turn a potentially negative experience into a positive one.
  • Under Promise, Over-deliver: Don’t try to promise something you can’t back up. Give realistic shipping times and then aim to exceed them. This can lead to pleasant surprises for customers and build a reputation for reliability
