Improved UPS Rates Calculator
Posted on November 5, 2002 by Jon BachShare:
For the last year, our shipping prices have been the result of a shipping estimator program that we built ourselves. This estimator was usually accurate to within 10%, but in some cases was hugely inaccurate. Today we roll out a new system that ties directly to UPS via a XML layer! Not only does this ensure incredibly accurate shipping estimations (which means assurance that you don't overpay!), but it allows us to expand our offerings and include every possible shipping method on your order. It even allows us to show you exactly how long a UPS Ground shipment will take to reach you. Added features, more options and increased accuracy make this a valuable addition to our website!
