Destination Based Product Fees Features
With the Destination Based Product Fee App, merchants can apply custom fees to individual products or groups of products in their BigCommerce storefront. Fees are calculated with pinpoint accuracy based on defined geographic zones.
By default, Destination Based Product Fees are displayed as a separate line item per product in the cart and checkout, as well as on the order confirmation email.
The Destination Based Product Fee app is directly accessible from your BigCommerce dashboard. Easily configure and update all settings directly from your BigCommerce store admin panel.
Discounts and Coupons
Store owners can still leverage sitewide discounts, category discounts, individual product sales, discounts, and coupons without skipping a beat.
Supports Mixed Carts
Carts may contain products with and without Destination Based fees, making checkout seamless regardless of the items in a customer's cart.
Compatibility with other BigCommerce Apps
If your store has apps that specifically customize, or replace, the BigCommerce Checkout process, we’ll need to consult with you and your store before installing the Destination Based Fees App.
Compatibility and Support
Our solution is compatible with most other BigCommerce apps, including apps like Avalara and TaxJar that merchants may have configured for complex Sales Tax calculations.
Works with BigCommerce Payment Methods
Our solution is compatible with all BC payment methods, with one simple caveat: In order to calculate a destination-based fee, we need to know the shipping destination!
In-App support via Zendesk will be included in the monthly fee. Additionally, extensive documentation and FAQs will be made available to all Destination Based Fee app customers.
Applications of Destination Based Product Fees
Take for instance a specialized ‘Cold Shipping’ fee an online distributor needs to charge to ship their flash-frozen seafood across the country. This merchant wants to charge more if they need to ship a longer distance since they will need to pack the shipment with more dry ice and better insulation for a longer trip.
With the Destination Based Product Fees app, the merchant can group products into Product Groups, create Zones radiating from their shipping facility based on the number of days of transit to the destination, and charge an additional Flat Fee Rate based on the destination.
This application can be leveraged to solve for a number of other scenarios that don’t currently have a solution on the BigCommerce platform. Contact our team to discuss your unique specifications.
