However, apart from the ability to display accurate rates, the plugin also lets you have full control over the shipping rates.

Offer shipping rates based on the weight of all the products that are in the cart.
Offer cheaper shipping options for those customers who purchase more number of items.

Handle Multiple Shipping Rules Without any Hassle
Whether yours is a small-scale, medium-scale or a large-scale online business, when it comes to shipping rules, no one wants to deal with it. Spending time and effort in creating shipping rules and then checking whether the shipping rates are accurate or not, is a real pain.

WooCommerce Multi-Carrier Shipping plugin has got a really simple solution to this problem. The plugin allows you to import and export your shipping rules as a CSV file. This makes it very easy to create and modify the shipping rules without getting confused.
Customize Your Packaging with Custom & Standard FedEx Boxes
One of the ways to ensure your products are delivered safely and not damaged in transit is to make sure you pack them properly. FedEx is among the shipping carriers which takes this to another level with the help of FedEx Standard boxes.

Business Scenarios Handled by WooCommerce Multi-Carrier Shipping plugin
One of the amazing parts of dealing with so many satisfied customers is the fact that you get to know the business better day after day. Not only we help our customers with their shipping needs, but we also make sure it helps others that are looking for a similar solution.
Hence, here are some business cases, directly from our customers. We hope these will help you with your business.
Set up weight based shipping rates using UPS and USPS
Do you use UPS and USPS both for shipping..?
The best part about using UPS and USPS together for shipping is that you get two things,
- More Geographical Coverage and Cheaper Rates for Lighter Products – From USPS
- Quality Service and Reliable Shipping – From UPS
Hence, this is the reason most of the WooCommerce store owners prefer to use them together. However, there is no shipping solution for WooCommerce which provides real-time shipping rates for both UPS and USPS. So, there is no way for the store owners to use these shipping carriers together on their website.
Fortunately, WooCommerce Multi-Carrier Shipping plugin is the only solution that will make it happen. Using this plugin you can set up weight limits for both the shipping carriers. Since USPS provides cheaper shipping rates for lighter products, you can set up a weight range up to which the plugin will display the real-time USPS shipping rates. And similarly, you can set up another weight range for UPS.
Provide International Shipping via FedEx and DHL
When it comes to international shipping, there are two shipping carriers that provide both the reliability and quality of service. And these are DHL and FedEx. Similar to the case that we discussed above, using both these carriers on your website is still a challenge which only the WooCommerce Multi-Carrier Shipping plugin can fulfill.
Using the plugin, you can easily set up shipping rules for different shipping zones or countries, and enable FedEx and DHL as the default shipping carrier for the destination addresses under the specified location.
Boost Sales with Free Shipping above a Certain Purchase
There are many ways to boost the sales of your online store. However, Free Shipping is among the best and the easiest of them. The hard part is the fact that not many people know on what basis you should provide the option of free shipping.
With the help of WooCommerce Multi-Carrier Shipping plugin, you have the ability to choose between various factors based on which you can provide free or cheaper shipping options. You can provide free shipping based on,
- How much the customers are spending (price)
- How many products customers are purchasing in one time (quantity)
- How much the cart weighs (order weight)
