Support » Plugin: shipcloud for WooCommerce » Two questions: packet type based on total order size and batch printing

    Hi,

    2 “presales” questions:

    1. If all products are configured with weight in woocommerce, will this plugin then be able to pick the right packet size automatically? For example, the order is overall 2kg so it takes size M from DHL. If the order is 10kg in total, then it takes size L automatically.

    2. Is it possilbe to select (check) mutiple orders from the woocommerce order list and bulk print several shipping labels at once.

    FWIW, I looked at https://github.com/awsmug/shipcloud-for-woocommerce and in this forum (and the bugs mentioned there). Would be great if there was
    * a code coverage badge telling the test coverage to users like done at https://github.com/woocommerce/woocommerce#woocommerce—–
    * a built tool based on Grunt (or gulp or similar)
    * eslint for js checks and autoprefixer for css and similar tools
    * automatic CI tests, e.g. travis as woocommerce does

    This would definitely increase my confidence in the plugin as the plugin does many things automatically via APIs and can therefore really cause harm if tiny bugs
    happen.

    Hi @gerdneumann,

    let me try to answer your questions:

    1.) If provided the plugin will use the weight defined at the products to calculate a summarised weight or you can specify the weight of the package used, since different materials may result in different weights while the dimensions stay the same. If weight hasn’t been defined for your products, you can always supply it while creating a shipping label. There you’ll also have to provide the dimensions (width, length and height) of the box you’re sending. Afterwards you get a shipping label suited for what you’re trying to send. So in a way the answer is yes, since you will get the label based on the data you’re using and no, because the plugin won’t tell you, which box you will have to use.

    2.) Yes, this is possible. You can select multiple orders and have shipping labels created for them. Afterwards, you’ll get a pdf that has the created shipping labels merged into one file, while the single labels will be saved as well, if you need them afterwards.

    We’re constantly trying to update the plugin and good code coverage as well as automatic CI tests are definitely something we’re going to be doing in the near future.

    Thanks, sounds good!
