This is how the WooCommerce integration with Packlink PRO works.
1. Install and configure the plugin
You can install the Packlink PRO plugin in one of two ways: either a. directly from your back office, or b. from the WooCommerce plugs page.
- Option a. From your WordPress back office go to “Plugins” > “Add new” > then, search for “Packlink” > “Install now”.
- Option b. Go to https://wordpress.org/plugins/packlink-pro-shipping and click on the “Download” button. Then, from your WordPress back office “Plugins” section click on “Add new” > “Upload plugin” and upload the downloaded zip file.
Once you have installed the plugin, login to the Packlink PRO website and click on the “Configuration” icon in the top right-hand corner. Then, from the left-hand menu, select “Integrations for your online store” and click on the WooCommerce logo, where you can generate the API key required to synchronize both platforms. Copy this API key. You will need to enter this key in Packlink PRO module in WooCommerce.
In Packlink PRO, you can define the dimensions of your most common parcel and pickup address. This information is automatically synchronized with your WooCommerce and becomes your predefined parcel and address.
2. Sync with your Packlink PRO account
Go back to your WooCommerce back office and select the WooCommerce > Packlink PRO from the left-hand menu. When the module login page opens, paste the API key you copied from your Packlink PRO account and click on the Log in button. The module will automatically synchronize your default parcel dimensions and pickup address from Packlink PRO. Also, after a few moments, it will synchronize all available shipping services.
Select the shipping services you want to use. When you click on a “configure” button next to each shipping service, you can configure how you name each service and whether you show the carrier logo to your customers.
Besides name and logo, for each shipping service you can define your pricing policy by choosing from the following options: direct Packlink prices, percentage of Packlink price, fixed price by weight, or fixed price by shopping cart.
3. Use the module
If an order has been paid or payment was accepted by you, the shipment will be automatically imported into your Packlink PRO account. Also, you have an option to manually send an order to the Packlink PRO by opening order details page and clicking on the “Create draft” button in the “Packlink PRO Shipping” section on the right side.
Packlink PRO is always updated with all shipments that are ready for shipment in WooCommerce.
You only need to access Packlink PRO for the payment. Sender and recipient details will already have been synchronized with WooCommerce data.
