Magento shipping module update

Nov 14, 2009

Aside from working with Drupal, another recent development at PRWD has been an update to our Auto-shipping Module for Magento. This module works by automatically applying the most suitable delivery cost to an order before the checkout process begins. This ensures that the customer sees the full cost of the order on the shopping basket page. This is important because nobody likes surprises during a checkout process, and unexpected costs can be a big cause of checkout abandonment.

The new updates to the module enable multi-store functionality, so you can set different default shipping destinations for different stores (e.g. where you have a different store for different languages). This makes the module considerably more flexible.

If you’ve used the module or have any suggestions for how it could be improved, let us know on the PRWD blog.
