Pick-up point

A PDF label is immediately shown and ready to print. Tracking information is automatically saved in the system and can be included in customer emails or can be sendt by text message.

Easily create:

  • Shipping labels as PDF files
  • Return shipping labels
  • Tracking information

This plugin replaces the two previous modules “Smart Send Labelgenerator” and “Smart Send Pickup Shipping”.
