osCommerce-Official Posted March 12, 2021 Share Posted March 12, 2021 (edited) Same as the Payment methods, Shipping methods in osCommerce v4 can be linked to: - a particular sales channel (website) - customer group - country or region and be available for the front end (checkout or quotation), back end, and POS. Shipping methods can be also linked with one or more tracking methods (to be described further). Same as the payment methods, Shipping methods can be installed, enabled or disabled. There exist a number of "offline" shipping methods, where prices are set manually in the back end. And a number of "online" shipping methods, which provide integration with the corresponding shipping provider's API. It is very likely that "online" shipping methods will find their way to a special section of the back end when osCommerce v4 is released. It is also likely that such "online" shipping methods will be made available through the marketplace, either for free or for a nominal fee (in the latter case it will be surely less than their analogues from WooCommerce, etc). And of course osCommerce developers will be very welcome to create new solutions and list them as apps too. One interesting new solution is Click and Collect shipping. It is possible to set Click and Collect locations in the settings of osCommerce v4, and then allow customers to choose Click and Collect as a shipping option on checkout. Here is the list of currently present "online" shipping modules, in no particular order: - FedEx - DHL - UPS - USPS - TNT express - NovaPoshta Another interesting new solution is a so called Zone Table method: - it allows for setting up various shipping zones, by country, by region of the country, or even a range of post/zip codes - it allows for setting up various shipping methods and naming them accordingly - and finally, it links zones and shipping methods together, allowing setting up delivery costs by order price, weight, volume, dimensions, etc Edited March 12, 2021 by osCommerce-Official Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
