Mintsoft has the ability to automatically determine which courier service to apply to orders based on a number of different methods. Once setup, the system will work its way through the following list in order to determine which courier service to apply to an order.
1) Courier details supplied on an order
If the courier service is supplied with an order e.g. via a spreadsheet upload, FTP etc that exactly matches the name of a courier service setup in the system then that will be used otherwise it'll check for the next step;
2) Courier service mapping
A mapping allows the name of shipping tags from various order sources to be linked to the name of a courier service in Mintsoft.
3) Courier service selection rules
Rules can be setup based on a number of factors to give complete flexibility - on shipping destination (countries or zones), weights and order values.
4) Cheapest Pricing Logic
If enabled, and none of the above steps have applied, the system can look for the cheapest courier service that conforms to shipment weight.
5) Product Specific Rules
You can set SKU specific couriers services or switching rules. Switching rules will change an auto determined courier to another if required e.g. if you know an item will be determined as Large Letter but is too big and needs to go as packet.
