Decrease abandoned carts
Shipping Rates Calculator Plus displays shipping costs to your customers in the shopping cart. It makes your customers feel more confident about the checkout process and increases the usability of your store.
Why should I display shipping rates in the shopping cart?
According to the UPS Pulse of the Online Shopper Survey, "44% of shoppers abandoned a cart because they wanted to get an idea of total costs (including shipping) to compare before buying". When questioned about "Reasons for abandoning shopping carts", 34% answered, "Shipping and handling costs were listed too late during the checkout process". Showing shipping rates upfront is key because it reduces friction and enhances the customer experience.
How does it work?
The app auto-detects your customers' location using a precision IP database. With that information, it queries the Shopify API to get the different shipping options available for that location.
How are the shipping rates displayed?
Shipping rates are displayed on your shopping cart page, with a map showing the customer location and the option to select a different location. Most drawer and pop-up carts are also suppported.
Shipping Rates Calculator Plus is mobile-friendly, adapting its size and layout to any screen size or device and its styles are automatically configured for most Shopify themes.
Display delivery estimates
If real-time carriers are configured in your store, estimated delivery dates provided by your carrier are also displayed. Shopify offers carrier-calculated shipping rates for all stores in the US and Canada through USPS, FedEx, UPS, and Canada Post. Shipping Rates Calculator Plus is the perfect match to show their delivery times!
Compatibility with shipping apps
Shipping Rates Calculator Plus shows your store shipping rates and estimates exactly as they are provided by the Shopify API. If you use a third-party advanced shipping or bespoke shipping app, Shipping Rates Calculator Plus will display the shipping information as long as the app is integrated with the Shopify API as a Carrier Service.
