Hello Everyone, my name is Boris, I am new to Magento and work with a few developers on our site which we are migrating from Yahoo. The site is almost done (http://musicbox.nextmp.net/) but still needs few things. Right now we use a 3rd party software called the Advanced Shipping Manager (https://advancedshippingmanager.com/) by King Webmaster and it allows the customer to see exactly when the order will arrive based on what shipping method they will choose. The software grabs real time delivery dates from all carriers we use and select. I am having a very hard time finding this type of an extension or software for our new Mangeto store. Can anyone please help and point a similar software that we can use on Magento. Although the Advanced Shipping Manager does work in magento as well, but they charge $130 monthly for it, which seems too expensive and we are trying to get away from the monthly costs. Thanks very much in advance
First of all congrats for your new site. As described above that you are using the Advanced Shipping Manager is one of the known shipping provider. Here we have some other shipping companies names that you can us in you new Magento store.
You can try one of the above. I hope it will work for you.
If my answer is useful, please Accept as Solution & give Kudos
Welcome to Magento community!
I've actually been looking at a new system called Fenix Commerce. They have a Magento Extension in the Magento Marketplace: https://marketplace.magento.com/
It is SaaS, so there would be some ongoing fee, it may still be worth looking at.
Best of luck!
Thank you Robert, I appreciate the mention.
Boris, we are happy to walk you through your options here. For instance, if you want a delivery date, there is actually a lot more that goes into that then just transits especially for the custom engraved products.
We have all of these use cases built into our platform to dynamically adjust depending manufacturing requirements, warehouse requirements, shipping services and customer location.
Let me know if you want to connect.
Thanks very much Robert, I believe this is what I was looking for, thanks a million
Thanks @david_mccary , perfect, I just looked at the screen shots and believe this is exactly what we need. Although there wasn't much else to go by to make sure, like back end options, etc, but I believe this will work. Yes some items we sell require extra time so yes we would need to customize the back end to work perfectly for that as well. Let's connect, please let me know.
I've liked what I've seen so far too, so I've invited the Fenix team to join me on an episode of The JetRails Podcast, and hope to have more to share in the next few weeks. Feel free to subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts.
Thanks @boris_muchnik my email is firstname.lastname@example.org feel free to reach out so we can continue the conversation.
You can try this extension: https://marketplace.magento.com/storepep-storepep-shippingcalculator.html
It will help you to show real-time shipping speed and rate at the cart and checkout page.
Recently I used one Delivery date extension. Maybe that is helpful to you.
