January 13, 2015
WESTBOROUGH, MA, January 8, 2015 – PAID, Inc., (OTCQB: PAYD) a leading provider of multi-carrier real-time shipping rates, is proud to announce its plugin module for Magento, an ecommerce platform.
This enhanced shipping calculator integration provides sellers with superior carrier-calculated rate functionality compared to table rate and flat-fee shipping calculations. PAID’s shipping rate engine helps sellers maximize their sales by providing the most accurate real-time rates from UPS, USPS, Fedex and DHL.
The advanced rating and packaging algorithms also help sellers and customers take advantage of such capabilities as dimensional rates, flat-rate box qualifications and on-demand services.
“With the new dimensional weight pricing systems rolled out by UPS and FedEx, sellers that are not prepared could be losing as much as 50% by underquoting shipping rates.” stated Austin Lewis, PAID’s CEO. “Our system has been calculating accurate carrier flat-rate, physical weight and dimensional weight shipping calculations for over a decade.”
Along with providing real-time carrier rates, sellers can also take advantage of other features:
- No need to worry updates, we automatically deliver up-to-date carrier rates
- Intelligent packaging for multiple items
- Setting configurations that account for packaging weight
- Determine dimensional weight, compared to package weight automatically
- Calculate for USPS and FedEx Flat Rate Boxes & Envelopes
- Compare flat rate box to the regular carrier-calculated rate
- Charge handling by a percentage per order, fixed fee per item or per package
- Accurately calculate insurance based on value
- Discount shipping or free shipping based on order price or specified shipping service
