Automatic Shipping Calculation for E-Commerce Websites

by Lifted Logic

Does your e-commerce website need automatic shipping calculation for complicated online orders? Lifted Logic’s talented team of web developers can integrate automatic shipping calculation for e-commerce websites.

Automatic Shipping Calculation for Evolve Paleo Pantry:

Evolve Paleo Pantry ships food items such as snacks, bread, pancake mix, and cereals for consumers following a Paleo diet or lifestyle. They needed a way to accurately calculate shipping for orders containing varying amounts of items of different sizes, shapes, and weights, going all over the United States. Phew! Lucky for them, Lifted Logic’s developers are experts at e-commerce and provided as solution to their situation!

How do we do it?

Lifted Logic’s developers integrated an API (Application Program Interface) with USPS to calculate the correct shipping cost based on size, weight, and end shipping destination.¬†Lifted Logic can integrate automatic shipping calculation for your e-commerce website using either USPS, UPS, or FedEx API’s.

When a customer enters their shipping address, the information from that form is automatically sent through the API to USPS and USPS sends back the accurate shipping calculation. Amazing, isn’t it?! To the right is a screen shot from Evolve Paleo Pantry’s checkout page. This is what the customer sees. The average would have no inkling of the intricate connections being made behind the scenes. All they know is that their checkout process was a quick and easy user experience!
