Shesha by The Courier Guy

Description

Shesha by The Courier Guy plugin for WooCommerce allows the seller to give live courier quotes and ship your parcels with a click of a button.

This bypasses manual shipment detail capturing and allows for waybill printing within the website orders page.

The Courier Guy has built a strong reputation through strong customer relations and effective personal service. Today The Courier Guy is trusted, recognised and the fastest growing courier company in South Africa.

DISCLAIMER

Parcel sizes are based on your packaging structure. The plugin will compare the cart’s total dimensions against “Flyer”, “Medium”, “Large” and “Custom” parcel sizes to determine the best fit. The resulting calculation will be submitted to The Courier Guy as using the parcel’s dimensions. By downloading and using this plugin, you accept that incorrect Product and Parcel Size and Weight settings may cause quotes to be inaccurate, and The Courier Guy will not be responsible for these inaccurate quotes.
