This is my favorite. you can automatically calculate shipping costs right inside the shopping cart. ShipHawk compares hundreds of carriers and presents the best option for every shipment. There are so many variables to consider when it comes to shipping, and they all affect the cost. ShipHawk makes it easy to show your customers shipping rates for items of any size (parcel and freight), even if there are multiple items in the shopping cart. ShipHawk can even determine rates for unpacked, oversized and diverse inventories, so merchants don’t have to worry about rate tables or product matrixes anymore. The extension itself is free but the ShipHawk software requires a subscription.
