Toyota Online Parts Center powered by SimplePart is excited to announce the launch of our Real Time Shipping (RTS) calculator tool. This tool will quote your parts site customers with a shipping rate based on the weight and dimension of the products they are ordering from your site. Real time rates will be provided from USPS, UPS, and FedEx. These real time rates will ensure that customers are receiving the most cost effective rate for the items they want to order, and will cover your costs on the back end. No more overcharging on smaller items, and not collecting enough for larger items.
How will this change the way shipping is charged today?
RTS rates will be setup with a markup of your choosing, just like pricing for parts and accessories.
- For example, if FedEX Ground quotes $20 to ship a package, and your shipping markups is set to 30%, the customer will see a rate of $26 to ship that order (Cost plus 30%).
Where do the weights and dimensions come from?
All weights and dimensions are provided by TMNA. The same weights and dimensions will be used at each participating dealer.
