Freight Shipping Quote

Description

In situations where standard flat rates and automated live quotes may not suffice, the Freight Shipping Quote plugin provides a vital solution. It empowers customers to request personalized shipping quotes directly from the store manager, ensuring that their unique shipping requirements are met accurately.

With the Freight Shipping Quote plugin, you gain the ability to establish a personalized connection with your customers. This tool empowers you to set up a system where customers can request custom shipping quotes tailored to their shopping carts and shipping addresses.

Upon the submission of a shipping quote request, the WooCommerce backend equips store owners or managers to efficiently review these inquiries and provide accurate quotes. Customers can then update their order totals to reflect the quoted shipping price before finalizing their purchase with the custom shipping cost seamlessly integrated.

Streamlining Custom Freight Shipping

The necessity for customers to contact your store for a shipping quote often arises in cases involving sizable and weighty shipments that necessitate freight shipping. The Freight Shipping Quote plugin serves as a reliable solution for such instances. It presents customers with clear instructions during the checkout process, guiding them to initiate contact via a popup window with instructions provided by your store. Once this step is completed, customers can proceed with their order.

Personalized Shipping Quotes on a Global Scale

In situations where international shipping isn’t the core focus of your business, automating shipping costs might not be feasible or cost-effective for occasional international shipments. Nevertheless, retaining the ability for these customers to make purchases from your shop remains crucial. The Freight Shipping Quote plugin is a versatile solution, configurable for various shipping zones. This enables you to designate specific locations where customers can request shipping quotes, maintaining a seamless purchasing experience.

Efficient Shipping Quote Communication

For scenarios requiring customers to connect with you to obtain accurate shipping costs, effective communication and comprehensive information provision are paramount. Whether you prefer direct customer calls or initiating outreach yourself, the plugin allows you to determine instructions within an information modal. This ensures smooth communication channels, enhancing the overall shopping experience.

Simplified Management and Enhanced Shopping Experience

Managing shipping quotes is hassle-free with the WooCommerce admin screen. This user-friendly interface enables quick assignment of shipping costs to quotes. Additionally, the Freight Shipping Quote plugin grants the option to exclude alternative shipping choices when the contact for a shipping quote is available. This feature complements the ability to display the quote option based on specific cart contents, allowing you to prompt shipping quote requests for particular product categories or shipping classes.

Elevate Customer Engagement with Personalized Shipping Quotes

The Freight Shipping Quote plugin revolutionizes the way you interact with customers regarding shipping costs. By providing tailored quotes and transparent communication, you create a shopping experience that’s informed, efficient, and customer-centric.

This plugin is simple to use yet super effective. No need to study documentation to set it up. It’s very intuitive. Support responds right away and is willing to take recommendations and make fixes fast. Very happy with this plugin.

Excellent plugin and the support forum was excellent , and responded really fast and made some modifications very quickly. I have now changed the review to 5 stars The issue i had the support has taken the feedback below and added a facility to deal with the issue — very quickly However, I have only given 4 stars as it did not actually do the job for our site, but we may be a little unique — hence i have not marked the plugin down because of this We have a lot of salvage street furniture items and so the majority of the items (around 80-90%) do not have a price for delivery because of weight and size of the item, however quite a few of the smaller , lighter items , Lamps, Signs , brackets etc can be delivered by parcelforce in the UK and have a delivery price available. The issue is , if we apply the «Request for shipping Quote» to our UK Zone — then it appears ON all the items in UK , even if they have a delivery option , which looks confusing , if we do not add to the UK Zone , then NONE of the items have a request for quote which is the bulk of our sales. I’m looking either on a way to code / use conditions in shipping to enable / disable the shipping request quote — or a different plugin — manage to resolve by using a conditional shipping plugin But thought as the support had been so helpful and quick i would review

We ship world-wide, and it’s very expensive!The ‘real-time’ shipping plugins do a good job if you have regular sized parcels, but our products are all different shapes and if the customer buys more than one product (which we encourage:) — we don’t know what size parcel it needs — until we try it. Real-time plugins produce a cost, but if the cost is wrong we can loose way more than the product profit. So, using this plugin, on all irregular products we give the customer a ‘Request a Shipping Quote’ button, and the customer receives a ‘Custom’ quote. Start-up site — On another of our store we took ages entering the weight & dimensions of each product — thus opening day was delayed by 3 months. If we had used this plugin — we could have opened on day 1 — and added the details of each product as they were ordered.
