Many web-based shopping cart programs include modules that interface directly with web-based systems from leading shipping providers like UPS, FedEx, DHL and the USPS. These modules allow direct setting of shipping prices, order drop-off and pick-up, etc. But how do you make sure your shopping cart works with your favorite shipping providers? Ask and read before you buy. Not all shopping carts work with all providers. If you go ahead and purchase without studying beforehand, you might end up with a web-based shopping cart that doesn't work with your favorite shipper.
