If you need help with setting up Shopify 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 Shopify 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 Shopify to Webshipper.
Otherwise go to “Settings” => “Add order system”.
Choose “Shopify” in the “Order system type” dropdown, followed by an URL for your webshop.
Fill out the informations in “Sender address”. This is 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 your Shopify.
You should see the following on your screen:
Type in your Shopify URL again, but remember “.myshopify.com” this time!
It should look like this: Mywebshopname.myshopify.com
If you aren’t already logged in, you will have to do so first.
When you’re logged in, you should see this on your screen:
Click “Install App”.
Now go back to Webshipper and navigate to “Settings” => “Overview”.
You should now see the status “OK” next to your webshop.
Congratulations! Your webshop is now set up to use Webshipper.
2. Add 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”.
If you wish to show the created Webshipper rates in the Shopify checkout, aswell as to use pickup points, you’ll need to have “Real time carrier shipping” activated in Shopify.
If you’re in doubt whether this is activated or not – check this guide: Link
Isn’t that the case, you’ll have to contact Shopify for them to activate it.
As an alternative to this, we can match rates on “price” and “country”. This means that you’ll have to create identical rates in both Shopify and Webshipper.
Please take contact to Webshipper, if this is relevant.
Amazing. Now you’re up and running and ready to ship!
