Installation

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of WooCommerce, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “transdirect shipping” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Updating

Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

For plugin setup

  1. Under Woocommerce settings, navigate shipping tab then Transdirect Shipping option.
  2. Click Enable Transdirect to enable the plugin. For Authentication, add API-Key, provided by Transdirect, please contact sales@transdirect.com.au.
  3. For all settings of plugin please visit https://www.transdirect.com.au/members/api/apimodules

The integration with WordPress and Woocommerce is superficial at best. Woocommerce has shipping zones and classes which can be applied to categories and products but these are totally ignored in the Trans Direct plugin which requires you to create rules via their website for each product using the SKU. Which then presents a maintenance issue for new products which will have to be manually added to the list of rules. The manual online rule creation process doesn't allow you to edit a rule once created - even though there is an edit button which allows you to make changes, there's no way to save your edit. OK you can import those rules from a CSV file but the process is clunky and the sample CSV file contains column headings but no sample data. The CSV file also uses a + sign to indicate an amount should be added to the shipping cost. In a spreadsheet + is used to start the entry of a formula so the only workaround is to enter '+ which may mean the import fails. OK you can export the spreadsheet file to CSV and then search and replace but someone should have picked it up in testing. Judging by the number of unanswered comments in the WP support forum I'd suggest that support is patchy.

Plugin does exactly what i need it to do perfect for those who ship larger items that standard postage cannot handle. Support has been excellent.

I would really like to give more stars for this review, however their support for this plugin really sucks. We've been trying to get assistance for over a month now with sporadic email contact and no real way forward to resolve. Hard to recommend in light of this issue with support.
