Well-organized shipping procedures and accurate shipping rates are important factors for running a successful ecommerce business. One of the main reasons for cart abandonment on online stores is high and not clear shipping costs. Customers are more likely to leave a website without a purchase if they are not aware of the shipping amount added to the product final price before they check out.
Today, we present you a tool that provides website visitors with the possibility to estimate exact shipping rates before the checkout – the Amasty Shipping Cost Calculator for Magento 2. The extension allows placing a special block on the product pages where customers can calculate shipping price based on their location. With the module, you will improve user experience on your storefront, build customer loyalty, and significantly decrease cart abandonment rates.
Below, we provide an overview of the core features of the Magento 2 shipping rates calculator module and show how to configure it in the backend.
