Extension to CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor integrates your store with InPost system through protocol ShipX. Add-on supports Paczkomaty 24/7 and other pickup points, and also InPost Courier.
We start from installing an extension:
Next we fill add-on configuration. In tab "General" we have to input the numer of downloaded pickup points and decide, if add-on should work in a dev mode.
In tab "Sender data" we type default sender data (usually company which runs Marketplace) which will be used to created InPost shipments.
Next we proceed to shipping method configuration - Inpost Express (courier shipping), and InPost Paczkomaty.
Configuration of both shippings requires typing ShipX access data. Then we can configure additional parameters, like sender point, type of displayed map, or sender address of courier shipping.
When customer placed an order using ShipX payment method, a special button appears.
This button opens up a map, which then allows customer to select his pickup point.
After selecing point, it is saved in session and displayed in checkout.
Upon placing an order, we need to print a label to attach to the package. To do this, we have to select the orders and click the button under the rack.
A special window will open, which lets you modify the parameters of label before generating it.
If labels were generated correctly, a link to them will appear on the shipments list.
After generating label, an order card starts displaying order tracking number.
This add-on also enabled mapping shipments statuses with order statuses in store.
Before configuring mapping, we have to download statuses using the "Download statuses InPost" button.
Each mapping contains name, status in InPost and status of order in CS-Cart. New mapping is created by button + in upper right corner.
Field “InPost Status” contains statuses downloaded from API Paczkomaty. Field “Order status” contains all available order statuses in CS-Cart. To create mapping, we have to select both statuses and name of mapping (which is only informational).
To make mappings affect order statuses, we have to connect our store with InPost through webhook. Webhook address is available in configuration of shipping:
To add webhook to the InPost, we have to log into our account in manager.paczkomaty.pl.
Then we proceed to menu "API" and type the webhook address on the bottom of the page.
After this operation, changes in shipment statuses in InPost will be sent to the store. Depending on shipment statuses in InPost, statuses of orders in store will change accordingly.
