StarShipIT + Shopify Walkthrough/Troubleshooting
End to End Booking Workflow
In this part we create a test booking to check everything is working as expected. Here we booking starts from Shopify to StarShipIT to Zoom2u.
Step 1 in Shopify: Create Test booking in Shopify
- On the checkout page in Shopify check if all your added Shipping methods are visible
- Check if prices are displayed correctly for your pick-drop address
- Get the customer to choose COD method for payment as it is a test booking.
Step 2 in StarShipIT: Send Jobs to Zoom2u
In Step 1 we placed an order from the eCommerce platform-Shopify. All such orders show under the “Unshipped” section in the StarShipIT main menu
- From Unshipped Orders section click Import -> Import All
- This will import all new / open orders from Shopify into StarShipIT
There are 2 ways to send the job to Zoom2u for fulfilment:
- Click on Order Number to view the order details
- Click Print and choose to “Print Label“
Either of the above offer the same option to “Print Label” which eventually sends the job to Zoom2u. However from inside the order details you can do much more and even review the order before sending to Zoom2u for fulfilment.
- Below is the order details page for the order no 1 above.
- Click Print Labels -> Print Labels to send the job to Zoom2u.
- This downloads a pdf file to your computer for label printing, sends the job to Zoom2u and moves it to Shipped section in StarShipIT.
- Once the shipment has been created, the Zoom2u booking will be created and a confirmation email will be sent to the email address in your Zoom2u account with a tracking number and tracking link.
Test bookings with API in test mode show in the Test Tab in Inside Booking section. They are not offered to couriers.
Once you go live with Live API key, the bookings will show in regular bookings tab and will be offered out to couriers.
