How to setup GLS as the Shipping Provider?
Updated over a week ago

The first and most important step in using Digiloop Pickup & Delivery is to set up the Shipping Providers you work with.

In order to set up your Shipping Providers, open the Shipping Providers menu under the Digiloop Pickup & Delivery app in your Shopify admin page.

Use the select box next to GLS. A drop-down menu will appear where you need to provide the necessary details to finish setting them up with your store:

  • Connection menu

    • Username

    • Password

    • Client ID

      • Please enter the Cliend ID that belongs to your MyGLS account.

    • Test / Live data connection

      • Enable if you have a live data connection and a live API key. Disable to use a test API key received from your provider.

    • Fulfillment service

      • Enable if you are using 3rd party fulfillment service and you only want to integrate parcel shops or parcel lockers in your cart or in your checkout.

  • General Settings

    • Label type

      • Choose which type/size of Shipping Label you wish to generate with just one click.

    • Generate shipping labels

      • Choose if the shipping labels should be created manually or automatically.

  • Sender Details

    • Fill in the required details with the necessary details. This will be where your package will be picked up by the courier.

  • Pickup points

    • Enable the parcel shop/parcel locker service(s) at the country where you want this shipping provider to appear at the integration to your store (Cart and/or Checkout page). If you disable all services, the interactive map will not be visible on the Cart and Checkout page.

  • Home Delivery

    • You can enable this setting if you wish to offer home deliveries.

    • Once enabled, choose one or more Shipping Rates from the drop-down menu.

      • The Shipping Rates are collected from your store admin and you could add more later.

  • Cash on Delivery

    • Choose which Shipping Rate you wish to use for Cash on Delivery

      • If you wish to localize the name of the Cash on Delivery payment method in your store, you would need to create a custom Payment Method in your store admin and choose it here.

When a customer places an order in your store, they will have the possibility to set up a filter to the type of shown locations to Package Points, Parcel lockers or both.

Once you have everything set up here, do not forget to click on Save and set up the Shipping Zones and Rates.
