If you need help with setting up Magento from the start, follow this guide step-by-step.
Otherwise you can use the quick-links below, for a guide on certain parts.
1. Connect your Magento with Webshipper
Start by creating a Webshipper account on Webshipper.com or Webshipper.dk
When logging in for the first time, you will be met with the following 4 steps:
Click on “Create your first order system” to add your Magento webshop.
Otherwise go to “Settings” => “Add order system”.
Start by choosing “Magento” in the “Order system type” dropdown, followed by an URL for your webshop.
Fill out the informations in “Sender address”. The address, from where you’re shipping orders.
When everything is done and correctly filled, press “Create order system”.
Now we need to establish a connection between Webshipper and Magento.
Navigate to “Settings” => “Order systems” => your magento webshop
You should see the following on the screen:
Click on “Download plugin”
Upload the downloaded plugin to your Magento FTP-server.
The “app” folder need to be merged with the app folder from on the server.
Return to Webshipper and copy this API-key:
Open the Webshipper settings in Magento by going to “System” -> “Configuration” and proceed to find Webshipper in the menu on the left.
Paste in the API-key.
Furthermore, you can specify at which state you want your orders to be transferred to Webshipper.
Congratulations! Your webshop is now connected with Webshipper.
2. Adding a shipper
Next we need to create your shipping methods.
Go back to “Get started” and click on “Create your first carrier now”.
Here you will have the opportunity to choose amongst our current integrations.
When clicking “Create now”, you will be asked to fill out the information we need from your shipper.
For the purpose of this guide, I’ve chosen YourGLS as an example.
The needed information differ from shipper to shipper.
Great! Now we’re almost there.
All we have left to do is add our shipping rates.
3. Add a shipping rate
Click on “Create your first shipping rate”.
Depending on your chosen shipper, “Type” and “Carrier service” will vary.
If you wish to allow your customers to choose a pickup point themselves, select the following:
- “GLS Pakkeshop” for GLS
- “Enable drop points” for PostDK
- “Pickup point” for Bring
- “Droppoints” for UPS
Fill out the remaining informations, aswell as the destination countries that you wish to support.
To allow free shipping on orders over “X” amount. Go to “Detailed settings” and select “Free above”.
Amazing! Now you’re set to receive and ship orders within Webshipper.
