Please note: This requires the Fontis SmartFreight® extension to also be installed in Magento. It also requires the Freight Estimator module to be installed in SmartFreight® and will not work without it.
Make use of the information already configured for the Fontis SmartFreight® extension to power the shipping options offered to your customers, both in the shopping cart and during checkout. The extension can be set up from the Magento admin panel like any other shipping method and makes use of the built-in shipping origin.
Customers can be shown the cheapest shipping option, the fastest, or both, along with options for insurance based on rates you set. You can choose to restrict the allowed carriers and add a handling fee to the costs for each carrier.
The description of each shipping option can be easily changed from the Magento admin panel. Use custom text for shipping method title, and for the cheapest and fastest options, or display the carrier and service directly. You can also choose whether to provide an estimated delivery time next to each option, as well as how insurance is presented to customers.
