Third Party Rates
If you wish to display Webshipper rates in checkout, then you will need to have Third-Party-Calculated-Shipping-Rates Enabled. This can be enabled by Shopify's customer support/service.
NOTE: Remember this has to be enabled before you set up the integration. If you do it after, the integration will have to be reconnected to your shop again.
Step 0 - Integrating from the Webshipper UI
Starting from this step is not required, but possible.
For setting up Shopify you will need admin access to your Shopify account.
Start by navigating to Connect -> Order Channels:
You can now press 'New order channel' in the top right corner:
Find/search 'Shopify' in the selector and press 'Connect':
Step 1 - Integrating from the Shopify UI
If you followed the previous step, you should now be directed to the Shopify App Marketplace and the Webshipper plugin within.
If you are starting directly from this step, follow this URL to access the Webshipper plugin in Shopify App Marketplace: Webshipper Shopify App (opens in new tab)
When viewing the Webshipper Shopify plugin, press 'Add app' to install the Shopify app on your shop.
You will now be asked to accept the permissions the plugin needs, press 'Install app' to continue.
You will then be re-directed to Webshipper, where you have to input your account/tenant name.
Your account/tenant name can be viewed in the URL address of your Webshipper account, for example the account/tenant name of this example is 'thm-test':
Step 2 - Setting up the details
You can now configure the details and settings of the Shopify connection to Webshipper.
You can specify the checkboxes exactly as you would like them, we however do recommend checking the boxes as illustrated in the image below for an optimal setup:
- Order channel name of your choice
- Amount of drop points to display if you have a drop point shipping method
- Shop URL
- Synchronization status
- Sync order cancellation (recommended - will cancel Webshipper order if Shopify order is cancelled)
- Sync order tags (recommended)
- Show drop point distance in checkout (recommended)
- Prefix drop point (put a pre text in front of your generated drop points)
- Only show rates in Shop Currency (recommended if using multiple currencies)
- Sync order lines (recommended)
- Include recommended risk action (recommended)
- Meta fields from Shopify you wish to import
- Capture money on fulfillment (recommended)
- Mark invoice as paid on fulfillment (recommended)
- Notify customers with the Shopify notification options (recommended)
- Capture entire order on all orders and not just separate order lines
Congratulations! The connection between Shopify and Webshipper is complete, and orders made in your store are now transferred to Webshipper.
NOTE: Remember to delete your already existing rates created in Shopify to avoid having double rates in checkout.
Step 3 - The remaining fields explained
Locations are used from your Settings Locations library.
Read more here about locations.
Mark if you wish for your orders to be automatically fulfilled in the shop once it has been sent in Webshipper. If the integration fails on a high number of orders when trying to fulfill in the shop, this checkmark will deactivate and you will receive a notification email regarding it and how to solve it.
Do you wish to just let the system run everything? awesome, just check this box and let the platform create your shipping labels automatically for you.
