Shipping Modules

Zen Cart Shipping Modules

Shipping modules allow you to charge your customers for delivery.

The list of available shipping modules may be seen by going to Admin > Modules > Shipping.

Zen Cart has a number of built-in shipping modules which allow you to charge for shipping based on various factors in the order:

  • Flat - Charge a single flat rate on all shipments
  • Item - Charge per item
  • Zones - Charge different rates for delivering to different zones
  • Table - Charge according to a table of rates based on weight, item count or item price

Zen Cart also integrates with a number of shipping vendors using plugins:

More shipping plugins may be found in the Shipping module plugins area.

Developers wishing to create a shipping module should see the shipping dev FAQs.

In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.
