Many of our customers have asked for a way to allow for Free shipping based on a combination of purchasing metrics.
Issue – Free shipping up to a certain weight and price for single and multiple items. Over that threshold, which was 20lbs, they charge the customer based on matrixed parameters. The parameters they were looking for was Free shipping as long as the total combined weight was under 20 lbs. They needed a way to control shipping cost on items by combined weight.
YourHost.com programmers made an addon-module that will allow the store owner to get a wide variation of weight, zip, dollar amount to calculate shipping, and more.

Let’s face it, Google is the standard that most SEO experts work at targeting and the rest tend to follow. Even with that known, it can be very tricky and downright frustrating to get your web site or commerce store found indexed. Poor website design can result in only the home page rank being indexed..?
Why? The answer is structure content relevance, and a whole lot more elements. Poor design is like bad food for Google or the Search Engines,… They get a taste and find another place to eat that is inviting. (Search engine have electronic spiders that crawl the site and use complex antilogarithms to decide if it is worthy of continuing.
People who are getting a site built tend NOT to be concerned with how the site foundations are made, and only how it looks.
Once quoted a price that seems outrageous, they then seek out to find a brother, family member, and someone that does not have a clue how to build that good foundation. This is a repeated footprint that we see on a regular basis.
To the average customer, looks are most important over mindful layout, heading labeling, content, placement, usability, etc. They still tend to miss that most important fact.
The key to a good SEO friendly site is to find a design team that is well versed in the layout and design as it relates to SEO, and they instruct you on what needs to be on the pages and how.
So, how do you pick a company that knows there stuff and won’t load you up and rob you blind?
It is not easy when we get clients that come to us with some real sad stories. We know that we they are hypersensitive and we treat them with that understanding until we have built a trust based on doing what we say we will do and seeing results.
