Installation for Shopify for Basic Plan
Shopify Basic plan cannot fully utilize the Transdirect plugin as it needs Real Time Shipping enabled on your account. Basic Plan does not have this option enabled/added by default.
The installation process will be the same however only the order sync can be activated on your account. The following pop-up will also appear on your modules page.
- Enter your pickup postcode. This will be the default postcode address where the courier calculations will base the origin of shipments.
- Select if type of location is “Commercial” or “Residential” based on where your warehouse/pickup point is located.
Rules enables you to add conditions to quotes based on the postcode or weight. Shipping can also be configured to have a “free shipping/fixed rate” depending on the configuration or condition added.
Default Item Size
Enter in default package dimensions. Default package dimensions will be used if you do not input custom package dimension for a specific product.
Order Sync Setup
Enable order sync functionality for only Transdirect Orders – If enabled, the Transdirect plugin will upload your transdirect order information to your transdirect members area as your customers checkout, allowing for easy booking of your orders.
Enable order sync functionality for all orders – If enabled, the Transdirect plugin will upload all store order information to your transdirect members area as your customers checkout, allowing for easy booking of your orders.
Select type of Quote to display, these options control what quotes are displayed to your clients.
- Display All Quotes – This will display all quotes sorted by cheapest to most expensive
- Display Cheapest – This will only show a single quote which is the cheapest.
- Display Cheapest & Fastest – This will display two quotes, the cheapest quote, and the fastest quote
Please keep in mind that all of these options are applied after the more advanced options available below are applied.
Apply General Surcharge
This adds a fixed $ amount or a % onto the final quotes that are displayed, this can be used to cover handling expenses.
If you would like to disable quotes from a particular courier service, then you can uncheck the box left of the row. If unselected, quotes for this courier will not be calculated.
Rename / Group Couriers
The rename feature allows for you to hide the name of the courier, and allow something more user friendly to be displayed in the front end, eg. “Air Express” or “Road Courier”
You can also use this option to Group couriers, if you call multiple services by the same name, then only the cheapest option will be used and displayed. For example, you could call all the same day services “Same Day” and all road services “Road Express”, and your client would get presented with only 2 options during the checkout process.
Please note this is advanced functionality, do not enable this if you do not fully understand the implications that this will have on quoting.
This feature is useful for customers that might have a large number of small items which they will box before dispatching.
Multiple packages will be consolidated and computed based on the total dimension and volumetric weight, then spread across different boxes, at the Box size you have set.
Example: 1 item with total volumetric weight of 60kg will be charged against 3x20kg boxes.
Example: 3 items with total volumetric weight of 20kg will be charged against 1x20kg box.
Example: 3 items with total volumetric weight of 50kg will be charged against 2x20kg boxes and 1x10kg box.
