This section is about setting up shipping methods in the Smart Send plugin. Make sure you have completed the section WooCommerce - Connect to Smart Send before going through this article
To setup a Shipping method first go to WooCommerce - Shipping - and edit the shipping zone for which you would like to add a shipping method
You have 2 options when sending to pick-up points.
In the picture below the shipping method is set as a select pick-up point with PostNord. Furthermore it has been set to increase the shipping cost based on the total weight of the products bought. Finally there has been setup free shipping for orders above 500.
In the picture below the shipping method is set as a Home Delivery with PostNord. Furthermore it has been set to increase the shipping cost based on the total weight of the products bought. Finally there has been setup free shipping for orders above 500.
Free shipping is setup through the Flat rate option on each shipping method.
The flat rate cost is the price paid by the customer when the condition "Minimum order amount" is met. If you want free shipping is should be set to 0. If you want a reduced price for orders over a certain amount, you can setup the reduced rated by typing in an amount higher than 0.
In the cost field for the shipping methods it is possible to use WooCommerce standard calculations.
In the picture below the rates are calculated in 3 different ways:
You have the option to either include or exclude products from one or more shipping classes. This allows you to hide a shipping methods if a customer buys both a small and a large product.
Example: You have a bicycle shop and a customer have bought a bicycle and a pump.
In this case you can't send the bicycle wilt a normal parcel and you want only send bicycle on pallets. You can therefore setup a shipping method with "At least one product belongs to shipping class" to show the pallet shipping methods when buying a bicycle.
On the same time you should also have a method for the customers who only buys the pump and NOT the bicycle. You will have to setup a second shipping method for the same zone, but where the dropdown for shipping classes is set to "All products belong to the shipping class" and chose the shipping class for the pumps.
You can make shipping methods valid for certain customer groups. This is specially useful if you sell to both B2C and B2B or wants to give a discount to returning customers.
This can be done in two ways.
Either by excluding specific customers type
Or by excluding all customer types beside guests
You can print labels either from the bulk actions tab in the order overview or from each order page.
You can mark up to 5 orders at a time and choose "Generate labels"
You can go to a specific order and choose "Generate label" from the Smart Send logistics box.
Both action will provide you with a PDF file you can print and return a tracking link
