In this 4th video in the series about building a web store for your candle business (this certainly pertains to other businesses as well!), I show you how to set up shipping in Woocommerce with a real time shipping calculator by the company AuctionInc. This calculator works with Woocommerce to give you real shipping rates.
For candles, a real time shipping calculator is very important. Without one, you would have to set up zones and figure out how much it might cost to ship items to different zones, and then specify the weights, and in what increments the shipping price will go up and so on……..
It’s a big pain in the neck! lol
With a real time calculator, you just set up the weight for each item and dimensions, and a few other things, and then when someone purchases, the shipping calculator gets the shipping price straight from USPS, UPS or whoever your preferred carrier is!
