With Cost Sheets you can upload a list of prices for each service to draw prices from.
Cost Sheets will benefit you in several ways.
- Easy to maintain and update multiple shipping methods with one click
- Visible in checkout with Carrier Quote enabled
- No more incorrect prices because of calculating errors
- Instant and easy overview of shipping costs
- More automated shipping and more time for what matters
- Cost reports to compare invoices from carriers
Normally in Webshipper you create a shipping rate and add the static price on the rates you would like to have it. This price will have to be manually managed under each shipping rate whenever you need to adjust it.
Let's say your shipping cost from the carrier is 10 (just to take a random number) and you would like to cover extra expenses on the shipping as well, then this could a price of 5.3% for environmental taxes and perhaps another 1.2% then you will have to do the math and enter the final calculated static price on the rate itself.
However, with Cost Sheets you can set a price for 10 for the specific service in the sheet and set a rule to always add 5.3% + 1.2% as your shipping price. The system will then do the math for you.
Essentially it is the same thing that happens however, with the Cost Sheet it will react dynamically on the specific service. So, If you have many shipping methods with the same service, you will only need to adjust the price in one place and not on each individual shipping method/rate.
So no need to set time off to adjust all your rates, we know you are busy with what's really important.
When using Cost Sheets instead of the regular setup for shipping rates, you are also able to create cost reports. This can be useful to compare invoices from carriers and check if what you have been billed from your carrier matches what have been sent in Webshipper.
