If you have a webshop in Germany and want to ship to some regions, you have to take care on a special rate called 'Inseltarif'.
Another case is when you want to offer shipping by a carrier like DHL, UPS and so on.
If you use OpenCart as you webshop solution you can either install several extensions and maybe you are lucky if all of them will fit what you need.
Beside that fact that you have to define several modules the customer may see several options he has to choose from - the checkout process can be strange because of many options the customer will see.
Here comes CustomShipping.
One extension (a module based on VQMod, so no need to adopt manually any file) where you can define as many shipping methods you want/need and show therefore exactly that shipping option in the checkout process the customer should see and choose from.
While it is simple to define, it has many options like:
- based on total amount
- based on weight
- based on volume
- based on quantity
Define which customer group, geozone and payment method shall be able to use the shipping method.
Exclude or include zip codes.
Exclude IP-addresses - or ranges.
Set a free limit no shipping costs will be applied if over this limit (amount, weight, volume or quantity).
Define for each active language seperate titles, and optionally a text you want to display the customer how much he should buy additionally to become shipping for free.
The best of all: you can create as many shipping methods as you like - or need.
This great extension is available only here - get the extension in our download section.
