App works great, I had some setup issues on my site so I emailed support and was shocked at how fast they responded and got the issues taken care of. For $40 a year this app is the biggest steal on the shopify app store and I'm not sure how sites get by without a shipping calculator on their cart page as no one wants to start entering information and going through the checkout process without seeing the shipping price.
SUGGESTION: GET THIS APP ! While still in BETA for the lower price lock in rate this APP pays for itself.
I would have no problem paying 2x or 3x the monthly rate Code Black Belt is currently offering this APP for.
First off - Big thanks to Mike over at Code Black Belt !
I have been waiting for a solution like the Shipping Rate Calculator Plus APP for awhile. For any ecommerce site its crucial you provide a Grand Total immediately in Shopping Cart Summary. Shoppers like full disclosure on totals $$$ and don't want to move on to the next page of checkout until they know..... Don't waste your time or theirs and give them the rates up front. Sure Shopify may have a shipping rates estimator, but this is added work for the shopper on your site. Whats great is that this APP does all the work for you.... It auto-displays the rates immediately based off GEO-LOCATION of shopper.
There is a number of reasons why this is important.
1. This builds trust with new shoppers and the credibility of your site.
2. Increases conversion rates to checkout
3. Builds repeat business since customers will appreciate the easy interface at point of shopping cart summary over your competitors.
4. Fast loading and Responsive.
I am always hesitant with Beta APPs but had to have this implemented immediately to see for myself.... Before I installed I contacted Code Black Belt to ask a couple questions and to test how quick their response time was. Well they passed my "Sniff Test" with a quick reply and explained that their code will not affect other elements of theme as they use a single line of code that will not modify other elements.... Believe me I have had this happen in the past with other APPs so I am very careful always making backups of my theme.
Installation was seamless and displaying immediately ! I did notice afterwards the original Shipping Rates Estimator driven by Shopify was still displaying and saw a better way to layout the new APP to match our theme.
Contacted Code Black Belt and Mike over there always follows up with a solution and adjustments to layout which just makes our site combined with his APP look better and better.
I look at Code Black Belt Team and Mike as true professionals.... Unlike some other guys who write code and say "Lets make an APP" and then fall out of communication once they are on to the next thing.
Code Black Belt is a company to deal with because this is what they do.... Create Solutions that make your site better..... And when I say better I mean more sales and conversions. Because their service is so phenomenal I am now looking at the next APP from Code Black Belt - Frequently Bought Together APP.
I look at business long term and need the right software APP partners to advance our ecommerce operations by enhancing elements on our shopping site.

Great app! Great Developer. This is far superior to the basic estimated shipping calculator and we have seen an increase in conversion rates during the short time we have used it. Well worth it! The developer has been more than responsive, we made several suggestions to the app and they implemented the new features very quickly. Including weekend cutoff times and customizing where the estimator is displayed. We highly recommend this app!!!
