Usefulness case study

This extension is useful for Merchants seeking an automatic Shipping Rates deployments solution in Magento as a choice for their customer' shopping.

For example: A Merchant shipping their products out with different carriers with multiple weights, would generally end up filling Table Rates data in Magento. Which gives great control, but inacurrate up-to-date rates and not many choices for their customers shopping. This oftenly results in cart abandonment and never-returning customers.

This solution addresses the matter by providing a Live Rate Solution to customers in Cart / Checkout. Allowing the best available rates based on the product's weigt and shipping destination. At the same time, completely eliminating the need for Merchants to manually monitor rates with their carriers and update Shipping Tables.

Merchants once completing the one-time setup, can forget about it.
They have the ability to enable / disable several shipping services under their carrier's account. As a result less data entry management thanks to this module, and gives you more time processing your orders out.
