Installation

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of WooCommerce MyParcel, log in to your WordPress admin panel, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “WooCommerce MyParcel” and click Search Plugins. You can install it by simply clicking Install Now. After clicking that link you will be asked if you’re sure you want to install the plugin. Click yes and WordPress will automatically complete the installation.

Manual installation via the WordPress interface

  1. Download the plugin zip file to your computer
  2. Go to the WordPress admin panel menu Plugins > Add New
  3. Choose upload
  4. Upload the plugin zip file, the plugin will now be installed
  5. After installation has finished, click the ‘activate plugin’ link

Manual installation via FTP

  1. Download the plugin file to your computer and unzip it
  2. Using an FTP program, or your hosting control panel, upload the unzipped plugin folder to your WordPress installation’s wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin from the Plugins menu within the WordPress admin.

Setting up the plugin

  1. Go to the menu WooCommerce > MyParcel.
  2. Fill in your API Details. If you don’t have API details, log into your myparcel account at backoffice.myparcel.nl where you can find your API key under Instellingen → Algemeen.
  3. Under ‘Default export settings’ you can set options that should be set by default for the export. You can change these settings per order at the time of export.
  4. The plugin is ready to be used!

Testing

We advise you to test the whole checkout procedure once to see if everything works as it should. Pay special attention to the following:

The MyParcel plugin adds extra fields to the checkout of your webshop, to make it possible for the client to add street name, number and optional additions separately. This way you can be sure that everything is entered correctly. Because not all checkouts are configured alike, it’s possible that the positioning/alignment of these extra fields have to be adjusted.

Moreover, after a label is created, a track&trace code is added to the order. When the order is completed from WooCommerce, this track & trace code is added to the email (when this is enabled in the settings). Check that the code is correctly displayed in your template. You can read how to change the text in the FAQ section.

How do I get an API key?

When logged in on your myparcel account at backoffice.myparcel.nl you can find your API key under Instellingen → Algemeen.

How do I change the track&trace email text?

You can change the text (which is placed above the order details table by default) by applying the following filter:

add_filter( 'wcmyparcel_email_text', 'wcmyparcel_new_email_text' );
function wcmyparcel_new_email_text($track_trace_tekst) {
    // Tutoyeren ipv vousvoyeren
    $nieuwe_tekst = 'Je kunt je bestelling volgen met het volgende PostNL track&trace nummer:';
    return $nieuwe_tekst;
}

Reviews

onterechte Cargo kosten

heb twee jaar zeer fijne ervaringen gehad met myparcel, tot het moment dat postNL meetgegevens(te groot te zwaar) van mijn pakketten doorgaf die Myparcel 1 op 1 aan mij door berekend (€70,- excl. BTW). Na contact met Myparcel werd mij gevraagd om een foto te sturen waarbij ik het pakket gemeten heb en het label zichtbaar was. Toen ik vroeg of postNL dit ook naar mij wilde sturen, kreeg ik geen reactie.

Achteraf blijkt dat PostNL eigenaar is van Myparcel. Ik adviseer je om een tussenpersoon te nemen die wel aan de kant van de webshop staat ipv postNL

Perfect

Saves us lot’s of time.
