SHOPWARE SHIPPING MODULE
- The Shopware shipping module is suitable up to and including version 5.6.7 of the webshop. In addition, we also support Shopware 6. Are you working with a different version, would you like more information about Shopware 6 or is the pairing not successful? Please contact our customer service.
- Wuunder has both a test and production environment. We recommend that you test the operation of your shop thoroughly in the test environment before going live. Activate the test environment through this link.
- Make a backup of your webshop and download the Shopware plug-in via the Shopware marketplace.
Step 2 - Then click Additional settings and then on Wuunder shipping module. Then complete the company details.
- Provide the company name and address where the shipments are to be collected by the carrier (s). The information you enter here will be visible on the shipping label, so that the driver of the carrier knows where the shipments must be picked up and delivered (returns).
- The email address you use here will also receive all the labels you create. This can be, for example, the email address of the warehouse that prepares the shipments.
- After you have booked a shipment with Wuunder, we automatically update the status of your order in Shopware. You can determine the status yourself after booking. Usually shops choose the status "Complete".
- In the field Root URL of the Shopware installation enter where Shopware is installed on your domain. Example: mijndomein.nl/shopware.
- In the field Wuunder API key enter the API key you received from Wuunder. If you don't plan to test, choose "Do not" at the field "Test mode". read here more about the test and production environment and how to request the API keys.
- At the different Mapping # 1 filter Methods you can choose shipping methods that you show to your customer during checkout. If you want to know which services you can use, go to Wuunder filters. Enter the name of the service you want to use in the checkout such as: dpd or dhl_parcel. We immediately show the chosen service by the customer when booking the shipment with a blue dot.
- When all details have been entered, click on at the bottom of the page "Save". Hoera; the plugin is now configured!
Step 3 - Now go to your shop and test if everything is still working properly. Sometimes it can happen that the plug-in conflicts with already installed plug-ins. If you don't need the other plugins, it's best to remove them.
Our plug-in is made on the basis of the standard check-out page of the webshop environment. As a result, when changes are made and / or a plug-in is used for the check-out, our plug-in no longer functions properly. So keep this in mind if the standard check-out page has been adjusted or a completely different one is used.
After you have made adjustments to the settings of the Wuunder plugin, we advise to empty the cache from Shopware. The settings affect the checkout process and cannot be applied due to the cache. You empty the cache by following these steps:
Step 1: Open your Shopware dashboard, and click"Configuration".
Step 2: Now click on "Cache / Performance" and select Clear shop cache.
Now the cache of the website has been cleared. The first time the website is shown it may take a little longer to load, but this is a one-off.
