Using GFS Checkout
To use GFS Checkout and the GFS Checkout widgets you must have a Checkout account. To obtain an account follow the checklist below:
Carrier integrations simplified. Carrier and delivery integrations are always more complex than they appear, as the validity of a delivery service is dependent on so many factors, and these vary by carrier, carrier service, operational and/or carrier cut off times, postcode/location, weight breaks, and business specific logic which could be attributed as granular as SKU level.
GFS Checkout removes complexity for developers as carrier selection rules are managed by business users through the GFS Management Console provided with GFS Checkout, eliminating the need to make changes in the eCommerce platform.
Calls made to and results returned from GFS Checkout are in a logical order to set the parameters for the delivery options to be calculated. All the information required should be available at the time the consumer is checking out, so that the available options can be returned promptly without interrupting the flow of the checkout process on the web site.
GFS Checkout enables you to continue to label your parcels through your existing shipping system - carrier or third party. Access to the GFS Checkout does not require the use of any other GFS service and can be accessed on a standalone basis.
