Provides support for shipping accessorials during the ordering process and when adding a shipping address.

Shipping Accessorials

Shipping Accessorials is a module for ‚ÄčZen Cart allowing customers to provide additional information about their shipping requirements. The information is captured and stored in the database for each shipping address. When a customer places an order, the shipping accessorials are added to the order comments. This allows both customers and Zen Cart administrators to quickly access any specific shipping requirements. The shipping accessorials can also be accessed and used by shipping modules to provide more accurate shipping estimates (especially for freight).

What accessorials are included?

  • Liftgate: Does your location require a liftgate (no truck dock)?
  • Inside Delivery: Do you need the package brought a few feet into your building?
  • Notification: Do you require prior notification of delivery?
  • Non-Commercial: Is this a non-commercial location (residential, churches, etc)?
  • Limited Access: Is this a secure facility (any security or limited access to the facility)?

What are the Requirements?

  • Working installation of Zen Cart 1.5.x
  • Secure FTP access to the Zen Cart installation (while you can use plain FTP it is not recommended)
  • An account with "superuser" access Zen Cart's administrative interface
  • Read and agree to the License
