How does the Live Rates works?

How the live rates plugins offered by Octolize calculates the shipping rates? All the “magic” happens in just three steps:

Creating API Requests

All the Octolize live rates WooCommerce plugins create the API requests based on the customer’s cart and your plugin’s settings. The request contains all the data that can affect the calculation of the courier company rates. It’s the weight of all the products in the shopping cart and their dimensions. It’s also the shipping location, store address and all the plugin’s settings like pickup type, and parcel packing method. Of course, it must contain all the elements that affect price changes, such as additional insurance or handling fees configured in the plugin’s settings, are also added there. The plugin then sends the request to the courier company servers, where the request is processed.

Rates calculation with the API Response

Based on the file uploaded by the WooCommerce live rates plugins, the courier company’s servers return an API response with all available shipping methods along with their rates. They are calculated fully automatically.

Rates presentation

The final step is to display all available shipping methods with live calculated shipping rates. The Live Rates plugin interprets the data from the response API and displays it in the cart or checkout page of your WooCommerce store. Everything happens in the blink of an eye, so the store’s customers get automatically calculated rates.

Accurate Rates

With Octolize WooCommerce plugins, you’ll receive accurate live rates. You won’t have to bother with configuring the shipping cost manually and checking the changes in courier’s prices. The plugins like UPS WooCommerce Live Rates and Access Points PRO can calculate how much it will cost for your customer to ship their order. This saves you time in setting up shipping in the store and handling orders. What’s more, by receiving automatically calculated rates, you don’t have to worry about the shipping cost being more than your customers have paid. With live rates plugins from Octolize, you can save time and money.

They will not any additional fees associated with shipping services like shipping boxes or packaging materials.

Procedure For Shipping Process

The first step is to email the customer that the courier company has picked up their parcel. This email will come from the seller’s system and be sent to the recipient’s email address. The user can then click on this link and see an overview of what was in their package and how much it cost. If there were any problems with their parcel, they can click on “report a problem” and fill out a form with details about what happened. The courier company’s API returns the accurate shipping rates to the Octolize live rates plugin.
