Parcel2Go Shipping

Description

What does it do?

Without every leaving your WooCommerce/Word Press store, you can get an instant quote to send your sold products out to your customers.

Each generated quote will give you a wide array of options to compare and choose from. These options include Courier Companies, Time of Delivery, Drop Off or Courier Pick Up and much more.

It’s quick, simple, and free!

How does it work?

When an order is ‘processing’, an extra option will become available in the ‘WooCommerce Orders’ table for ‘Sending with Parcel2Go’. Choosing this option will quickly and automatically take you through to the Parcel2Go quote page to start your order process.

Once a service is chosen and paid for – using Parcel2Go prepay – the order will then be marked as ‘Complete’, which means you’ll be able to download your label for shipping and have access to the most recent tracking event from your order page!

Reviews

Great Plugin, saves me so much time!

I've been after something like this for a while, my orders were taking up way too much of my time each day. I didn't really have high expectations for it but I was pleasantly surprised when testing it on my site. It allows me to get all my orders from the previous day and quickly get a shipping label for them all. Thank you Parcel2Go, you're a lifesaver. If I did have one piece of criticism though, it can be confusing when getting a quote as the order of the quotes isn't obvious. Is there a way to order the quotes by price or delivery time?

Does not list all suppliers, no support

Our shop sells objects that vary in size and weight, and ships them internationally. Depending on size, weight and customer location, we have a number of preferred suppliers. It would be SO useful to be able to connect directly to the Parcel2go site to avoid having to copy over all the address details manually, but since this plugin only returns five results and you can't specify what suppliers it chooses, it's impossible to choose a supplier in the way we do on the main website. This needs to be controllable: there's no point returning the five cheapest if all five are suppliers we have other reasons not to use. I left a support question about this which is unanswered after six weeks, so I'm thinking this plugin seems to be abandoned, which is a great pity.

Great idea, but doesnt work

Been trying for a couple of days to get this to work. The set up is easy with keys and secret etc. But as soon as try to actually process an order it fails every time saying "unexpected error". Tried on different orders too, same issue. Such a pity as this would've saved me so much time with my workflow. But pointless if it wont actually allow you to progress to process any orders with it. Might need to look for a new parcel provider instead as the manual route is way too cumbersome now my shop is getting busier.
