If you need help with setting up WooCommerce 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 WooCommerce 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 WooCommerce to Webshipper.
Otherwise go to “Settings” => “Add order system”.
Choose “WooCommerce” 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 in, press “Create order system”.
Now we need to establish a connection between Webshipper and your WooCommerce.
Navigate to “Settings” => “Order systems” and pick your WooCommerce.
You should see the following on your screen:
Click on “Download plugin”
Go back to your WooCommerce and navigate to “Plugins” => “Add new”.
Here you have two options
- Upload the downloaded plugin, by clicking on “Upload plugin”.
- Search for our plugin and click “Install now”
Now return to Webshipper again and copy this API-key:
In WordPress navigate to “Settings” => “Webshipper options”.
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 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 to 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.
