Free Shipping Plugins

Free Shipping Plugins What is a shipping plugin or a shipping extension? Many online sellers struggle with the shipping part, mainly getting the right rate in the shopping cart. So we have developed a free shipping plugin to help calculate costs of freight on peoples websites and on eBay. A good example for this article is moving goods from Sydney to Perth and have struggled to find a good rate? Traditionally customers buying off websites would simply have a flat rate however with the online market constantly expanding we have found that more regional and West coast or the other way round have been making online purchases. Given the uptake in demand having correct freight prices instead of a flat rate is more desirable as often the flat rate will be well below the actual freight cost charged by the courier company.

Here are some of the options online retailers customers may want to consider.
