Why Choose Purolator Over Its Competitors?

91% of Purolator is owned by Canada Post, which means you’re gaining the trust and structure of a government-run postal service at your back. Purolator offers the lowest prices for shipping domestically and internationally, only matched by Canadian Post. Purolator also has a deep community action value set, donating to local charities and causes such as food banks to end hunger.

Purolator’s direct competition is FedEx and Canada Post as well as other go-getter delivery services such as DHL, which typically deals with Amazon and other larger marketplace purchases. All of Canada’s courier services offer competitive prices and rates, so choosing the best one aligned to your business needs is optimal.

Two thumbs up!

Superior plugin and excellent support staff. I needed a small customization of the plugin and the team happily assisted with our request. I have tried the Woocommerce version, Extension Works and this plugin. I highly suggest this plugin over the others available. Especially, when support is this responsive. Two thumbs up!!!!!
