Does ShippingEasy offer live shipping rate quotes on my store platform?

No, ShippingEasy does not offer live rate quotes to your buyers. This is because ShippingEasy does not affect the front-end of your website. Our integration allows the syncing of order details and updating shipping details back to your store automatically.

That said, certain stores that integrate with ShippingEasy do offer live rate quotes for shipping costs. In other cases, these stores support third party plugins that provide live rate quote services.


Bigcommerce shipping methods guide details flat shipping rates and real-time carrier rates along with individual guides for each carrier:


A separate rate add-on in Prestashop is available for the display of shipping rates to you and your customers on the store.


Shopify offers special code to make rates available to your customers.


There are apps available through WooThemes that allow you to provide real-time rates to your customers from your WooCommerce shopping cart:

Keep in mind that if you extend any carrier service to your customers, you should be sure to connect these carriers to ShippingEasy.

TIP: if your store platform does not offer real-time quotes, you can only set your shipping rates according to weight, not by zone. This means that you will have to manually set your shipping rate quotes based off of the weights of the package and not their destination.
