New Feature: Carrier-Calculated Shipping
Earlier this week, we released an exciting new feature to the LightCMS store that we know you are going to love. We wanted to take a minute to give you the details, so take a look at what's new below.
Carrier-Calculated Shipping for Your Store
You can now tie-in with Fedex, UPS and USPS to have your store calculate shipping rates in real time. When your customers checkout, they will be presented with shipping options and pricing calculated by the carrier you choose based on the weight of the items purchased. This can streamline the shipping set up process and also allow you to charge your customers more accurately for their shipping requirements.
Setting up carrier-calculated shipping requires some specialized account set-up with the carriers you would like to use (such as Fedex, UPS and USPS). We have provided some instructions on setting up your carrier accounts and getting the information you need from your carrier accounts on the LightCMS User Guide at the following links:
The resources above are also available in white-label versions that you can share with your own clients if you wish. The white-label versions can be accessed at the following links:
Carrier-calculated shipping is already live inside your LightCMS account. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments below!
