- Excellent Customer Service Review by Tim @ K-Line Industries
- Best Value Extensions & A+ Customer Service Review by Alex
Previous developers were unresponsive, overpriced or unhelpful when faced with these problems.
I had some problems with installation that Karen and the WSA team took the time to debug to make sure everything was working within one day.
If you need shipping extensions, don't look anywhere else -- use WebShopApps (Posted on 12/9/13)

- The Cerasis Freight Extension is 5 Star!! Review by The Deck Store Online
Working with WebShopApps couldn't be easier, they have answered every question, no matter how trivial, & have helped us tailor their extensions to fit our needs.
This is the only review we have ever left for a Magento extension, & there isn't another one we would even consider recommending. WebShopApps delivers quality every time! (Posted on 4/16/13)
- Excellent modules, easy to use, outstanding support!!! Review by Steve
Before purchasing this and the Dimensional Shipping module, I had lengthy conversations with Karen and she answered all my questions. She even showed me a live demo of how the modules function and are setup. Needless to say I felt very comfortable purchasing the modules.
Before using these WSA modules I have tried many other free and paid ways to do the same, believe me any time spent on those was a major waste. With free solutions you have to modify code, keep modifying it and constantly worry if it is working or not. With WSA modules, you install them, configure them and never worry again.
You can see a working version of this Freight Shipping module which is connected to Echo by adding a large item to a cart and then go to the cart to get a shipping estimate at the URL below.

- Excellent Product, Oustanding Support Review by Matthew Orley of Akron, OH
Second, I was looking for some additional functionality in the access of the YRC API, and because it was on the product roadmap, this functionality was added free of charge and they upgraded the product. Just for me!
THere were a couple of hiccups with the revision... and...
although WSApps is in the UK, and I am in the USA, they answered all of my support questions DURING THE DAY my time, and always had the right answers in getting me working just right.
GREAT JOB! I would not hesitate on spending the $ for this code. They are not free, but they WORK.

- Outstanding Support, Great product Review by Matthew Orley of Akron, OH
This product was absolutely essential for the dog agility mats website I am working on.
Out of the gate, YRC Freight Rate worked exactly as promised- the first time.
I had some special requirements regarding a lift gate that was required, and although it was not in the initial offering, Karen and her team at WebShopApps revised the plugin for me to accommodate this need (it was on their list of planned upgrades, but still!)
I had a couple of hickups when working with this new revision, but, even though they are in the UK and I am in the USA, they helped me out within MINUTES during the day USA time.
I could not ask for a better provider. This is an A++ crew!!!!! THANK YOU WEB SHOP APPS!

- 5 Starts ~ Easy to use Review by Adam
This is the most needed mod for our shop. We ship large items and now don't have the need to have a price for each item. You have added all the features and with your support looking forward to the new year with less work on my plate.
On a side note I have bought several mods from webshopapps.com and they are well documented.
I would also recommend that you pickup the "Generic Tracker" with this mod and the Tracker your customers are sure to comeback with the services you offer.

Our Freight Shipping extension retrieves live shipping rates from your chosen freight carrier for your Magento store. With the option to offer freight shipping only when an item marked as freight is in the cart, or if a pre-defined weight limit is exceeded, this extension is ideal if you sell a mix of freight and non-freight items.
Integrates with Other WebShopApps Extensions
Many customers use Freight Shipping with other WebShopApps extensions to form a superior shipping solution:
• Use with the Dropship extension to specify standard shipping rates on items from one location and freight rates on items from another
• Use with the Dimensional Shipping extension to send dimensions into the Freight Shipping extension resulting in more accurate rate quotes
• Use with Shipping Override to only offer freight shipping in specific countries/ regions
