Installation

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.

Déjà que les traductions pour les livraisons via mondial relay ne sont pas faite, la dernière maj (3.3.1) à introduit pour ma part un bug sympa. Même en ayant choisi un point de livraison, le message "Please select drop-off location" continu d'être la et bloque la validation du panier 🙂 Aller la solution : éditer le fichier packlink-pro-shipping\resources\js\packlink-checkout.js et on remplace les [1] par [0] aux lignes suivantes. function setHiddenFields(location) { let dropOffId = document.getElementsByName( 'packlink_drop_off_id' )[1]; let dropOffExtra = document.getElementsByName( 'packlink_drop_off_extra' )[1]; Les gens ont oubliés qu'en informatique les tableaux commence à 0 😉 Bien sûr désactiver les maj auto avant de faire la modif... en attendant une correction officielle 😀

Les points relais (mondial relay, chronopost...) ne s'affichent pas sur mobile, ça affiche une page blanche et j'ai eu 0 retours du SAV. C'est embêtant car les clients ne pourront pas passer commande via leur mobile et ça peut faire perdre beaucoup de ventes inutilement. Il ne s'agit pas d'un conflit entre plugins car j'ai quasiment tout désactivé et le problème est toujours présent. Mon site est construis avec DIVI.

I used your plugin together with another service, after the last update, you reset all couriers from you and I had to set up them again and it turned out that you disabled my main courier without asking me for permission, when I re-enabled it, I don't see your couriers!!!. If you wish to have a monopoly like this, I will turn off your plug. Contact with help borders on a miracle, they never write back.

Funciona genial y cuando he tenido cualquier contratiempo, siempre contestan a tiempo y de forma muy profesional. Estoy encantada con el servicio que prestan. Y los precios de envío son de lo más competitivo.

It does everything like expected. But i have problems generating my PDFs for orders. Using German Market Plugin here. If Packlink is active it doesn't work with PHP 8. Only if i use PHP 7.4. I had send this issue above one year ago to the support, but nothing changed. Here is what they said:"German Market uses the PHP library "FPDF" to generate PDFs for delivery notes and return slips.If this library already exists in another plugin, German Market will not include it again, but use the files already included.Apparently the FPDF library in the "Packlink Pro Shipping" plugin is deprecated. The plugin should use a current version of FPDF. You would have to contact the support of this plugin."

I tested on a fresh installed site and it does not work, it get stuck on basic configuration. I followed the step to step guide published on your page... I also contacted support and they call me back and said that the problem that I have "Add service: We are having troubles getting shipping services" happen to lot of users, but they does not have a solution because it could be "anything"... So they ask for full server access, ftp, wordpress, root, and after 10 days no solution given... So packlink, if this is a common problem, just solve it and update your plugin... don't make clients wait forever.
