Managing Shipping Types

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Znode comes with the following Shipping Classes and rules pre-built into the platform:

  • The four types of Shipping Classes which can be configured are: Custom, FedEx, UPS, and USPS.

  • The four types of Shipping Rules which can be configured are: Weight-Based Rate, Quantity-Based Rate, Flat Rate Per Item, and Fixed Rate Per Item.

But if you need to implement your own custom Shipping Rules, Calculations, and Processing, you can do that by extending the Extension Engine with your own custom Shipping provider.

Ex: You do all of your shipping through DHL. You can create your own shipping provider, named something like DHL shipping, which calls out to a DHL service to perform shipping cost calculations and retrieve estimated delivery dates.

For E.g. American Eagle (Znode Partner) used the Shipping module of Znode's extension engine to create advanced shipping functionality that integrates with multiple external shipping services and provides the shopper with special shipping options, such as including a “lift gate” service for physically large products/orders requiring such delivery.
