In countless cases, a surprise freight fee is snuck in at the end of the ordering process and often leads to an abandoned shopping cart and a lost sale.
TOTECS offers a clever and popular solution to overcome this blocker by embedding a Freight Calculator function in the shopping basket summary page prior to checkout. It allows the customer to enter details such as a postcode and method of shipment to obtain an on-the-spot freight quote. This rather simple mechanism builds trust at a crucial point in the ordering process and liberates the customer by giving back control over their purchasing cost.
The Freight Calculator feature is highly recommended for companies who need to build trust fast such as a consumer facing eCommerce website.
