How to Make Shipping Easier with MageWorx Magento 2 Extensions

Rakia Binte Khalid Jul 24, 2019

Online retailers operating their stores on Magento 2 may experience some difficulties when choosing to customize shipping methods and set advanced rules for order delivery. The default Magento 2 functionality is restricted when it comes to setting complex rules and restrictions and generating shipping carriers and methods at different rates.

High shipping expenses have a negative impact on customer purchase decisions, so optimizing shipping processes becomes one of the primary issues for e-commerce store owners. Fortunately, by installing the suitable third-party module, you can extend the out-of-the-box toolset on your Magento 2 site.

The extension enables users to create highly tailored shipping strategies by configuring an infinite amount of shipping carriers and methods. It comes with some conditions to restrict certain shipping options and create rules that are in line with business strategy. Let’s take a closer look at its features.

Features & Benefits of MageWorx

  • The unlimited number of table rates.
  • Possibility of setting individual prices for particular shipping carriers and methods.
  • Option to override the delivery time value indicated in the shipping method.
  • Various methods for calculating shipping costs.
  • Possibility of applying fixed and percentage surcharges and discounts to shipping costs.
  • Advanced conditions for configuration table rates.
  • The quantity, cost or weight of products in the order as the basis for the shipping rate.
  • Advanced validation of postcodes and zip codes.
  • Support for alphanumeric postal codes.
  • Import and export of shipping table rates via CSV.

Magento 2 facilitates assigning only one set of table rates per shipping method. With MageWorx’s Shipping Table Rates, you can upload a list of your shipping rates and relate them to default and custom shipping techniques and carriers. The extension allows you to generate individual rates for chosen shipping providers. In addition, the configurations of the module allow users to prioritize table rates, conceal shipping options with no available rates, and show different costs depending on the view of the store. Moreover, the sophisticated shipping options module Magento 2 can override the importance of the estimated delivery time specified in a shipping method. You will, therefore, provide your customers with the precise date and time of delivery of their order.

As for the calculation choices of delivery rates, it is possible to substitute or alter the default method price with the MageWorx extension. This allows you to overwrite the original shipping cost, surcharge the designated sum to the original value, or set a shipping discount by deducting from the rate of the method.

The Magento 2 module also allows changing default prices using fixed or percent amount of surcharge and discount.

Furthermore, the Magento 2 table rates module offers users with advanced conditions for configuring customized shipping rates. Using the extension settings, you can calculate the exact shipping cost based on the delivery address in accordance with the following parameters:

  • Total weight or weight range of products in an order. 
  • Order subtotal or cost range of items ordered.
  • The number of products in order or quantity range of items.

As for the delivery destination, the module enables the targeting of a customer’s geographic location by specifying a postal or zip code in addition to choosing a shipping country and region. The feature of the Shipping Table Rates extension allows store owners to leverage advanced validation based on a specific postal code or postcode list, as well as the range of zip codes. Thus, you can activate shipping rates depending on the destination of the order, thus avoiding fees for correcting the delivery address and providing unique pricing for shipments to particular locations.

It is also important to note that in relation to numerical postal / zip codes prevalent in most countries, MageWorx Shipping Table Rates supports alphanumeric postcodes. This kind of codes is used in countries such as the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Canada, Ireland, and others. So, if you deliver your products to these locations, the Magento 2 module offers the necessary features to set the suitable zip code format.

Another useful feature of the Shipping Table Rates extension is the functionality of import/export. The module offers the capacity to readily transfer shipping-related data from other sources, such as from your other website. It allows you to handle and analyze all your shipping charges from one place conveniently and edit information manually when necessary. You can also import a CSV file with existing table rates and assign it to any shipping method or carrier depending on your business requirements.


MageWorx shipping suite is a robust Magento extension that offers an extensive set of tools to modify Magento 2 shipping integration options and create custom shipping, methods, and rates. MageWorx enables merchants to create custom shipping carriers. By using this module’s advanced shipping conditions, you can extend your delivery choices and limit specific shipping options as your business strategy needs. Thus, you can streamline Magento shipping extension management in your web store and provide more convenient delivery and reasonable shipping costs for your customers.
