WooCommerce Multiple Carrier Shipping Plugin combines the power of table rate shipping with real time rates from shipping companies like FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL Express & (USPS) to give you a complete shipping solution for your business. Yes, you heard it right! You can have the rates from all the three major carriers with this one great plugin.

Now, easily configure Shipping companies or services of the various shipping carriers based on rules using the powerful table rate platform of this plugin.One outstanding feature that sets apart this plugin from its competitors is the fact that you can set rules using various parameters like shipping class, Product category, Prices based on weight, item quantity and price and make your shipping hassle free.

Main Features

Configure Shipping company or Service based on rules: The greatest feature of this plugin is that the shopowner gets the flexibility to create separate rules for separate shipping companies.

For example, you can opt for FedEx shipping service for a particular product category as you may require a faster service.
Similarly, you can create a rule for other product categories and opt for USPS in it as they seem to be cheaper within US.

This plugin has an advantage in it’s ability to fetch the real time rates from FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL Express & Stamps (USPS) based on parameters such as product weight, shipping destination, postal code, product category, shipping class, total weight, price, number of packages, etc.

Custom Rules: Make shipping really simple by creating rules based on customer’s country, city, state, postal code, product category, shipping class, total weight, price, number of items, etc.

For example, you may want to set a flat rate for a particular product and opt for real time rates from UPS for other set products. No worries, just create a rule for flat rate for a shipping class (associated to that product) and create another rule for other shipping classes with the UPS service.

This gives a powerful flexibility to the shop-owner with regards to the variety that he can offer to his customers.
Define Shipping zones and create Shipping Areas: Outstanding seems to be the right word for this plugin! Using this feature, now create Areas where your rules would be applicable.
An area can be a WooCommerce defined shipping zone, country, State or even postal codes.

So now, easily set your shipping based on different geographies and make the most from your preferential zones.

Parcel Packing: Configure the plugin to automatically determine how items should be packed. This information will be sent to the specific carrier in their request which will affect the rates returned by them.
You can choose:

  • Weight-based packing method (pack items based on maximum weight of the box as specified in the admin section)
  • Pack items individually.

Fallback Rate: If the service you selected is not available in that country, you need not worry. This plugin has an option that will return the fallback rate that you have previously set.

Handling Fees: Set up handling fees based on the rules you define.

Production/Test Mode: For the purpose of testing, you can set the mode as testing and get test rates from the chosen carriers.

      I bought this plugin for a client last week! Even tho I’ve had few issues with the settings, Xadapter customer service (fast and meticulous) managed to provide me all the info to properly set it up! So I’m pretty happy with the purchase! 100% recommended.

      We have been using this plug-in for 6+ months now and finally it’s time to leave a review.

      In general, it’s a good plug-in, performs well and has timely updates but I think it’s little expensive for what it does. You can buy a heavy duty themes for under $50 and for the functionality they offer is far more than the amount of code and functionality within this plugin. In my research and analysis, the authors are taking advantage of limited plugin availability in this area and hence their prices are definitely much more higher than it should be. This justifies deduction of one star imho.

      The support team is great they definitely go far and beyond to offer support and that’s primarily the reason I’d encourage others on the fence to buy it provided you can get over hyped up cost factor. I’m extremely contended with their technical support staff, they did everything I had requested for what I wanted to implement on our site by offering custom code.

      There are two other reasons I deducted one more star:

      1) Inflexible selling model. We run two domains, I didn’t want to commit to multi-site plug-in in the beginning because I wasn’t sure if it’ll meet our expectation so bought one site license. I think it was past 30 days of purchase, something like 45 days after purchase I requested them to upgrade my license for multi-site after completely convinced that this was the right plug-in. It took little bit longer because of the technical issues the team was trying to address for our need. They insisted I buy another plugin and refused to upgrade my license.

      2) If you look at their agreement, it says one year of updates and support. Ok I get the support part that it can’t be unlimited but no updates after one year, this is not right. For this price, we need to have lifetime updates given how frequently WP and Woocommerce are getting updated; this plugin is not cheap to begin with. In fact, I think this is the costliest plug-in I’ve come across for limited functionality.

      Bought 2 days ago, had an initial set up problem with the API key. Anindo got back with me quickly and went into my admin on the site and fixed the problem. I think this is EASY TO USE. And, exactly what I was looking for to add both UPS and FEDEx real time rates. This is a cheaper alternative than buying multiple carrier plug-in’s and am glad I decided to go this route.

      I am new to this app and was having trouble installing it. The customer service department was able to help me get it sorted out.
      I have high hopes for the functionality of this app. Thanks

      We are using the multi-carrier shipping plug in to provide shipping options from USPS, FedEx, and UPS. Setup was simple and provided the options we needed. The XAdapter team has been very responsive to our requests for fixes to meet our needs.

      In English: I bought this plugin for my new e-commerce website in WooCommerce solution. I have analyzed like 10 plugins and this one is definitely the best. I have two kinds of products, perishables and nonperishables, this way, I need a plugin that defines a specific rule for a specific product or shipping class. Recently I needed some support and the guys of XAdapter are the best as well!

      Em Português: Eu comprei a licença deste plugin para minha nova loja virtual na solução de WooCommerce. Eu cheguei a analizar mais de 10 opções de plugins que se propunham a fazer tal tarefa, mas este realmente foi o melhor. Eu vendo dois tipos de produtos basicamente, perecíveis e não perecíveis, então eu precisava de um plugin que pudesse contemplar uma regra específica para um determinado produto ou classe de expedição. Recentemente eu precisei de suporte e verifiquei que os caras da XAdapter são também os melhores.

      I bought a five seat license because my clients want to use different shippers.

      So far, I have installed FedEx shipment on one website. The programmers were eager to make modifications, particularly around home vs business recipient addresses, to help get the proper options displayed. They put out several new versions as we worked on the changes. It’s now doing exactly what I needed.

      I gave it four stars because all I know for sure is that the FedEx portion works. As I install other shippers on other websites, I’ll revisit this review.

      I am testing "Multiple Carrier Shipping Plugin" on our site: I have Item QTY: Min = 1 & Max = 5 When I test in in the cart in shows the correct USPS Priority shipping for 1 item, but if I add 2 or more it defaults to the Fallback Rate. I even tried setting the Max = 100 Is this because I am testing the FREE version, maybe it doesn't happen in the paid version.

    • Anindo

      Anindo - 1 month ago

      Hi Jfedison, Ideally this should not happen. Even with multiple items, the rate should show. Would it be possible for you to raise this issue in the wordpress support forum. This way, all customers who are facing this issue will get to understand the resolution of this. Also, once you have posted this in wordpress forum, you can also attach the Request and response info in the thread so that our team can check the problem and help you. Here is a video that will help you to understand how to get the request and response by enabling the debug mode. Here is a video on how to debug higher rates Once you provide us the info in the wordpress forum, it will be easier for us to debug and resolve your problem.

      Hi, The plugin works based on rules. So if you want to show any shipping carrier, you have to create a rule for it. Do not worry. It is very easy to do that. Here is the setting up article for the same : We are also in the process of releasing a video on how to setup the plugin. If you need the video, let us know. We will then share it by end of day.

      Installed this on a new site and noticed the admin page under WooCommerce, Settings, Shipping, Multi-Carrier Shipping seems to be broken. I get a 404 error. I then tested it on our 2 operational sites that I updated already and sure enough both are giving me 404 as well.

      This morning it seems to have fixed itself. Must have been a connection issue or something. I didn't touch it. Haha! Sorry for the trouble.

      Hi Jeffrey, That's very strange. If in future this kind of an event happens, we request you to immediately check our demo site here -§ion=wf_multi_carrier_shipping If our demo site does not work, then there may be a problem with the server.
