ShopIntegrator 4.3 improves a variety of shipping & delivery capabilities to give you more control over which shipping plans customers from different locations have available and how shipping calculators work out the shipping costs.
All these new features are automatically available to all users, as our hosted shopping cart avoids installing and managing software on your own servers so you're always up-to-date with the latest version with no additional effort!
Each shipping plan now allows you to set delivery zone exlusions for the plan.
Countries which you exclude from a shipping plan will not be presented to the shopper as a shipping option in the checkout.
Offer an 'Express Special Delivery' shipping plan to shoppers in your home region that don't want to offer to international customers.
We've improved upon the last shopping cart upgrade that gave you the ability to send delivery status email notifications that keep the shopper informed of when an order is being prepared for delivery and when the delivery has been dispatched.
Thanks to feedback from those merchants who have started using the new delivery status email notifications, we've improved this feature by allowing you to set-up a default courier method and tracking link.
Product option weight modifiers may now be set in addition to product option price modifiers.
When you create a product in your Product Manager, you can give that product a weight, which can be used in the checkout for a weight based shipping plan. A product option can now change on the weight of the product for the shipping calculation.
For example, if you were a gallery selling beautiful pictures, you may sell the picture with or without a picture frame. When a customer chooses to buy the product with a frame you can increase the product price as well as its weight for the shipping calculation, compared to buying it without the frame.
Manage how each product influences the decision to allow free shipping for a customer order.
You now have greater control of whether you offer a customer free shipping for their order. All shipping plans allow you to set an order value per delivery zone which will trigger free shipping for the entire order.
You may have certain items for sale which are expensive to deliver and its not possible for you to offer free shipping for the customer order if they are buying those items from you.
We've improved our Order Manager so you now have each full line item cost, shipping cost, order discount amount and tax amounts together as a single order sheet for each order.
Your order manager gives you a central location for you to manage your online store's orders.
