Simple Online Calculator
A Simple Online Calculator is a quick and standard calculator that works flawlessly for applications involving few standard items that have fixed rates for fixed quantity. If the rates of any of the inputs like paper, ink or other factors change, you just need to re-enter the corresponding prices for your products.
This option works well for Digital Printing, where jobs are smaller and prices are fixed. It also works well for scenarios where you do not want to offer too many products options.

Our courier rate module allows you to list down Courier Companies, define zones and multiple pin codes and their corresponding rates based on different weight. You can use this feature to enter a database of multiple courier companies depending on their competitive price for a particular zip code.
The courier rate module is based on the zip code. As soon as your client mentions a zip code, the system scans the database and picks up the courier company providing the most competitive rate (entered by you) for the particular zip code. The same is automatically added to the invoice as shipping charges!
