Woo Aus EZi Freight

Description

With Woo Aus EZi Freight, you simply unleash the power of box packing so your clients pay less for freight even when they buy several different products.

This is how it works:
Based on the product shipping data, the extension determines the accumulative weight of all goods in the shopping cart.
It then calculated the total volume of all the goods in the cart.
From there, it picks the smallest sachet or box that is able to contain all items so your clients receive the most economical freight possible.

But that is just the start, it then queries dozens of Australian courier companies who will quote for the job in real-time.
Your customer then simply picks the courier company they like best.

FAQ

Q: What does this WooCommerce Freight Extension do?

A: It calculates the cheapest freight for your customers based on the weight and size of the combined products in their shopping cart.

Q: Do you need WooCommerce installed for this WooCommerce Freight Extension to work?

A: Yes.

Q: Will this WooCommerce Freight Extension work for carts located outside Australia?

A: No. The WooCommerce Freight Extension is specifically developed for Australian based businesses. However, the freight can be send worldwide.

Q: Why is the WooCommerce Freight Extension better than the Australian Post plugin?

A: The Australian Post plugin is great but it only uses services from 1 supplier – Australian Post (no surprises there). The WooCommerce Freight Extension on the other hand was commissioned by a prominent Australian eCommerce business with only one thing in mind; don't maximise Aus Post's profits but reduce my customers freight charges! So we did. WooCommerce Freight Extension uses Australian Post as well as a range of well known courier companies to find the cheapest freight quote in Australia. This simply means your customers will pay less for freight.

Q: Is Woo Aus EZi Freight fully customisable?

A: Yes. There are lots of variables you can customise such as unlimited types of boxes, tax rates, the “Freight Method Title” so you can brand your freight, additional packaging days, additional handling cost, maximum shipping services limit to display and much more.

Q: Do I need to open any accounts?

A: Yes. To take full advantage of the WooCommerce Freight Extension, you need to open an account with Australian Click and Send (FREE) and InterParcel (FREE).

Q: What is the difference between the free version of WooCommerce Freight Extension and the paid version?

A: First, there is no difference in functionality. The only difference is that the free version will display a little link in your client's shopping cart saying: “This plugin is not Licensed, please visit EZiHosting to active your plugin!”. Annoying, I know but we put a lot of effort into developing this extension and we like to recover some of the cost we incurred. Also, the Free trial version of the WooCommerce Freight Extension doesn't come with any updates or support. So please don't delay and obtain your license key and activate it so together we can eliminate world poverty.
