Overview

If shipping costs and options are made completely transparent as early as possible in the customer journey, this will certainly prevent a lot of unpleasant surprises and abandoned carts.

The CS-Cart Shipping estimate add-on lets you add information about Estimated delivery time, Shipping cost of each Transport company available in your store to keep customers informed as to how long each shipping method takes to ship an order and how much it costs.

The add-on enables you to automatically show the cheapest shipping method right on the product page.

The add-on is totally compatible with our IP Geolocation by MaxMind and Geolocation by Google add-ons. Enable geolocation feature to determine customer's location and set up shipping methods for places you ship to. These geolocation extensions for CS-Cart will automatically determine the current location of a customer and suggest proper shipping methods.

How it works

As we mentioned above, the Shipping estimate add-on is compatible with IP Geolocation by MaxMind and Geolocation by Google add-ons. If you do not have these extensions, the location of the user will be taken from the user’s profile. This means that if the customer has not filled in the billing address or checkouts as a guest, they will not see a block with the shipping estimate.

Below, you will see an example how it works with the Geolocation by Google add-on. The Shipping estimate add-on takes the data from Google Geolocation and displays the cheapest shipping method for customer’s location.

On the settings page of the add-on, you will see the ability to select the position (on the right, at the bottom or not display) of the block with the shipping estimate on the product page. Besides, you can select if the delivery period will be shown in the block.


The Timeout option allows you to be updated if the shipping estimate loading takes much time. If the specified timeout is exceeded, an email notification is sent to the administrator. Leave it empty if you do not want to be notified.

If you want to create a Shipping estimate tab, please go to Design - Product tabs and add a new block.

Even if you do not create a new tab, the customer will see a pop-up with shipping information while clicking on the Shipping estimate link.

Worked like a charm. Had some issues with compatibility with other add-ons but they were fixed immediately after I brought it to the developer's attention. Keep up the great work!

Works very good with geolocation, improved our conversion. After updating cs-cart, we hade a problem with the administration panel, but the helpdesk solved the problem within a few hours.

Got this add-on along with GeoLocation by Google, and it really is a great add-on. The 2 things that kept us apart from competitors were our shipping options, and our shipping cost. Being able to let users see that directly on the product page was really helpful. It also put an end to "Do You Ship To XXXX?" queries that kept coming before.

Отличный модуль. полностью решает поставленные задачи. техподдержка на высшем уровне. няньчились со мной пока не решили все мои проблемы

Works perfect with Geolocation by Google add-on (there is also IP Geolocation by MaxMind add-on by SimtechDev). It allows me determine the customer location and suggest proper shipping methods. Very userful.

Удобное расширение, лучше чем штатный функционал. Реализована хорошая возможность размещать информацию о доставке в разных местах карточки товара.

Полезный модуль но только в связке с модулем Google Geolocation. Для России, конечно, лучше бы в связке с модулем определения геолокации от Yandex. Яндекс карта как-то привычнее российскому пользователю интернет. Но в принципе все хорошо и с Google работает.

Потенциально полезная штука, но вот оказывает ли это влияние на продажи - пока не ясно. Из замечаний - не хватает возможности выбирать способы доставки, которые нужно показывать (у нас их много, и выводить все не целесообразно).

This is a very useful add-on. I ran into a couple of minor issues where my theme was conflicting with the add-on. The Simtech team were very supportive in resolving those and ensuring it worked to my expectation. It works great when used with Geolocation by Google Add-On from Simtech.
