Economy method is the most cost-efficient form of ground shipping. It is best used with customers who aren’t in rush to get their product(s) delivered. Ship time ranges from 1-6 business days depending on proximity to Detroit, MI.
Flat Rate Shipping is a free shipping method in WooCommerce that allows you define a standard rate per item.
We suggest using these WooCommerce formula templates as they mirror exactly what CC charges sellers per order.
4.99 + ( 1.5 * ( [qty]-1 ) )
7.50 + ( 5.95 * ( [qty]-1 ) )
WooCommerce is can be weird about inproper spacing, make sure to copy/paste.

Sell Longer into Holidays
Sometimes life gets in a way. Streamlined shipping allows customers to grab those last minute deals and make you more money.
CustomCat understands that when it comes to customer loyalty and happiness – shipping speed and cost are the main factors of running a successful business. The quicker the customer gets their hands on the product the better. Satisfied customers stay loyal to your business much more likely than unhappy customers.
Grow Your Audience
Word-of-mouth travels fast. Customer satisfaction goes a long way. Satisfied customers are more likely to give a 5-star rating. Longer shipping times are the reason for social media backlash from unhappy customers. On a happy note, we believe that you know what’s best for your business and that you make the right choices by adding this new feature.
You are more likely to see an increase in average order value due to the fact that customers pay extra for faster shipping (2-day & overnight) because who wants to pay more for shipping when you can do it all at once. In return, the drop shipping process becomes more simple and efficient.
Break Down Barriers
In today’s DNA age e-commerce stores compete with each and large in-store retailers as well. In-store retailers offer instant gratification at no shipping cost. With e-commerce being on the rise, shipping is one of the most important factors that drive businesses forward.

Avoid Lost Items
Lost items make customers growl. Who wants that? Fast delivery minimizes the risk of the item being lost. Decrease the time the package spends on the road and win the hearts of your customers today!
Boost Your Business
Some people want their items delivered yesterday. People are willing to spend the extra couple of dollars to get the item quickly. Adding a variety of shipping options will help increase your sales and boost your business. Always keep reinvesting into yourself, whether it means learning about design or adding new customer shipping feature to your store.
