Recommended Posts

DHL and Fedex charges extra for remote areas that are out of their delivery area. We sometimes get customers in remote area address but charged them the normal rates which results in loss of revenues collected for shipping.

(rates may vary)

 

A module that detects and apply additional charge depending on the carrier would be useful in helping cover the cost paid to the courier. A database of remote postal code should be maintained for each courier company. Module should be able to handling postal variances (eg. Ab54 4Pn and Ab544Pn without the spacing is the same)

The remote area database do not change often. No one has done this module before. This module should be able to last a long time.

 

I hope this module comes out cheap and affordable so everyone can use. Sell on forums or your own website to be more flexible.
