ShippingCalc Plugin for X-Cart Classic

X-Cart Classic: Accurate Multi-Carrier Real-time Shipping Rates

The AuctonInc ShippingCalc API Plugin Module for X-Cart Classic (i.e., version 4.x), developed by our partner BCS Engineering,  provides you with instant access to our Shipping Rates API and allows you to integrate accurate rates from multiple carriers (DHL, FedEx, USPS, UPS) into your X-Cart Classic store.

Never worry about shipping updates again! You don't need to deal with API updates or patches ever again - our module takes care of all updates automatically.

How does it work?

The module works with your available shipping methods in X-Cart along with the rates from AuctionInc to provide your customers the best price for shipping. Simply configure the rates and shipping methods in AuctionInc, enable those same shipping methods in X-Cart and our module will manage the pricing for you.

Many advanced features are supported such as USPS flat rate box calculations, insurance, flexible handling, packaging material weight, and more. Our technology is especially unique in its capability to accurately generate rates for items/quantities that must be packed into multiple boxes. 

  • Intelligent packaging for multiple items
  • Domestic and international services supported from any origin 
  • Carrier accounts not required
  • Advanced capabilities for determining fit into USPS flat rate boxes
  • Separate configuration for packing materials weight
  • Automatically determines dimensional weight pricing
  • Configure handling per item, package, or order 
  • Charge handling by flat fee or percentage
  • Determine insurance cost based on value
  • Discounts or free shipping based on the order price
  • Offer pickup or delivery based on zip code range 

There are many available plugins to help merchants ship their orders, but very few that offer accurate calculated shipping on the "front end" of your ecommerce store. Powered by AuctionInc’s patented shipping rate engine. "Take the guess out of shipping”, so the shipping prices quoted to your customers are accurate based on your unique business needs.

Requires X-Cart 4.x.
