Big Post Shipping for WooCommerce

Description

Big Post’s Shipping plugin for WooCommerce brings the convenience of real-time, accurate shipping quotes directly from the Big Post system to your customers. When orders are checked out through your shopping cart with Big Post rates, they are automatically created in the Big Post system for your review and despatch, eliminating the need for manual order entry.

Moreover, our plugin offers an array of benefits to Big Post customers:

  • Get shipping rates for both small and large, heavy, and bulky items, accommodating a wide range of products.
  • Enhance your customers’ shopping experience with an optional ‘Quick Quote’ widget on your product pages.
  • Easily despatch your goods to over 170 Big Post depots nationwide for collection.
  • Provide your customers with B2B, Home Delivery, and Depot Collection rates at checkout and on the product page. We even prompt customers to let us know if they have access to a forklift, enabling us to offer B2B quotes for bulkier items; and provide customers with the option to select ‘Authority to leave’ services for home deliveries.
  • Seamlessly support order syncing for orders placed with flat-rate or free shipping while still ensuring the order is created in the Big Post system.
  • Easily integrate with WooCommerce shipping zones for efficient shipping management.
  • Make use of the product-specific shipping settings and the option to limit shipping methods to specific products.
  • Access great shipping rates from top carriers including TNT, Courier’s Please, Northline, Capital Transport, Hi Trans, Hunter Express, Allied Express, Aramex, and more.
  • Maximize your profits by adding a margin to the sale of your freight.
  • For a hassle-free experience, our developers offer installation and customization assistance through our ‘Assisted Installation’ service, for a fee.

With Big Post’s Shipping plugin for WooCommerce, you can provide your customers with seamless and cost-effective shipping solutions, all while streamlining your shipping processes and boosting your business revenue.
