  • Totally transparent to your existing shipping configuration.  We work at native feature level to return correct carrier costs from PrestaShop to your customer.  


This is 'the must have' module for PrestaShops with international shipping. 


Key Benefits

  • Compatible with native localization detect, i.e. will localize automatically on visitor country cookie.  

Case Study:

Current Shipping | Carrier Behavior

  • Non-logged: served default shop country shipping.
  • Logged-in: served customer delivery address from addresses.  And to localizes on other address requires 1) that delivery country address exists, if not it must be added and 2) manual selection of address in addresses before accurate shipping is used.
This creates large gap between visitor landing and sign-in before providing accurate shipping costs and carrier options.


Module Extended Shipping | Carrier Behavior:

  • Non-logged:  localized on visitor cookie country as set by PrestaShop and as used for localizing language/currency/prices etc.  
  • Logged-in visitors may change their delivery country without need of adding new delivery country to addresses, thought widget will prompt them to add address to complete checkout.
Now all your shipping is localized both internally and through visitor widget creating perfect visitor experience.

Key Features

  • Compliant with all PrestaShop localization methods, Geo Location | Set Country by Visitor Language |++ | compliant 3rd modules that localize using visitor cookie country.
  • Configure display widget for Desktop | Tablet | Mobile. 
  • Enable display Carrier(s) in widget to let your visitors view their current carrier and select another carrier option as they desire.

  • Is not presented default country shipping costs when their delivery address is different or unknown.
  • By localizing shipping like currency and language we create perfect visitor experience and significantly reduce cart abandonment for international customers.



Cookie Law Modules do any of the actually work? No! "A Rant"

12 October 2016 - 04:19 PM

One of the things that drive me crazy.


If the visitor country does not participate in cookie law requirements, then don't show it.


I look at a 'lot' of ps shops, and with living in the US, if show me cookie message is a 'huge' turn off.



So those of you that live in cookie law world but sell to countries that only want their cookies with milk.  Then contact your developer and tell them to fix their module.


At the end of the day, present a visitor with information that is useless, and requiries a click to make go away, it's just as easy to close the browser window.


happy day, el
