The Dimensional Shipping extension for Magento 2 is about selecting the most suitable box for a number of products in the Order. But it can bring more benefits for both entrepreneurs and their web stores than you make think at first sight.
Minimize shipping costs
The first benefit that you get is an opportunity to select the most economically advantageous variant of shipping. When a customer makes a purchase, the extension automatically chooses a suitable box for it and calculates final weight and value.
To choose the most profitable carrier, inquire some of them about the calculation of shipping costs based on the received data (final weight and value of purchases). In doing so, you have alternatives. If you want to get more pluses and not go through the hassle, you may apply integration with carriers (connect Support).
Increase efficiency of warehouse operations
Every entrepreneur always strives to reduce expenses and increase profits. One of the ways to do this is to improve the productivity of warehouse workers.
For instance, packers are responsible for packing products in boxes and stuffing packing paper and vouchers in along with the purchased item. And what if the size of the box will be predetermined by the algorithm?
Hence, packers, beginning to pack, will already have accurate information about which box they should choose and how many items to put in it.
When packers don’t think too long about what box size they need to choose, consequently they work faster.
Reduce the number of returns and refunds
Returns and refunds always bring a lot of plagues to your business and break out customers’ loyalty.
The Dimensional Shipping extension can be a good helper for packers to eliminate mistakes. First off, because information about how to distribute purchases among boxes is in their hands and furthermore, information is accurate and final.
