Ch. 016. Shipping (Setting up Carrier Accounts)

PRESSERO > *Pressero Documentation Manual
If you would like to use Integrated shipping in your store you will complete the account information in this section (if it is needed). Some carriers do not offer any special discounts for customers with accounts so not every integrated solution requires account information. If you want to set up a shipping method using your customers account information or a brokers account information, you will not do that here. You will want to follow these same steps on the site level. As an example: if you set up your UPS account information in this area it will be available for all your sites to use. If one of those sites wants to use UPS but have their own account information be used to get the rates, then you will set this up again in that particular site and it will override what is entered here for just that particular site. 
Once you set up the various methods here, you will still need to activate the shipping methods in your individual stores in order for them to be enabled. The first step is to set them up here, then on a site by site basis you will decide which of these methods you want to make available to each store. You will also be able to limit certain shipping methods for different customers that are ordering from your site (site groups) and decide what order the various methods will display in the store. See Admin > Sites [Site Name] > Settings > Shipping. 
As of today's date, these are the options available in Pressero: 
  • Australia Post (Domestic)
  • Australia Post (International)
  • Australia Post eParcel (both Domestic and International rates)
  • Canada Post
  • Chronopost
  • Correios (Brazil)
  • Couriers Please (Australia)
  • FedEx
  • Fastway (South Africa)
  • IFS SmartFreight (United Kingdom)
  • JNE Express (Indonesia)
  • New Zealand Post (Domestic)
  • New Zealand Post (International)
  • OCA (Argentina)
  • Purolator (Canada)
  • UPS
  • UPS Freight
Each carrier has different requirements but in all cases where you are asked for account details, you need to first set up the account with the carrier of choice and then enter that information into the different areas. If there is any additional information supplied from the carriers, or unique information to share, we've listed it below. 
Your postal code listed in Preferences > Locations will be used as the "ship from" location when the fee is being calculated. Without a Location, any Store you create will have problems in the Shipping area of Checkout. 
You can override the account information entered here on a site by site basis. If you want to use your customer's account (instead of yours), enter it in their Site > Settings > Shipping area instead. If any of your sites will use the information you have entered here, there is no need to enter it again on the site level. 

Couriers Please
To set up your account for integration with Pressero, you will need to obtain an Access Key, Account Number and your Service Code from Couriers Please.  
Step 1: Add the Carrier Account Information
1. Go to Admin > Preferences > Shipping > Carrier Accounts
2. Locate the area for Couriers Please
3. Enter both the Access Key and Account Number provided to you 
4. Save
Step 2: Create a new Shipping Method
1. Go to Admin > Preferences > Shipping > Methods if you are not already there
2. Click on "Add New"
3. Enter a Method Name that your customers will see in the store
4. Select "Couriers Please" from the "Carrier" drop down. 
5. Select "Based on Provider Options - Service Code" from the "Service" Drop down (currently only option available)
6. Enter the Service Code provided to you by Couriers Please in the "Service Code" drop down in the "Provider Options" section of the page. This will be a 3 digit code.

Please Note: Package Dimensions will default to the minimum of 3cm by 4cm by 4cm. Do not change to dimensions smaller than the minimum set here. 
Also, the service is a bit different, when the user requests the shipping cost for an item it’ll list all the services available from the sender’s postcode to the customer’s postcode, so it’s possible that not all services are available from one postcode to another, the service code given to you will determine what is available. Therefore, your ship from location must include a city that matches the postal code district. The ship from location pulls from Preferences > Locations.  In both B2B and retail sites, the ship from location will be the primary location as set in Preferences > Locations unless you set a different ship from location in Sites > [site name] > Settings > General Info tab in the Shopping Cart section.  In retail sites, the field is labeled "Ship From Location."  In B2B sites, the field is labeled "Location."
It is recommended that you add directions to this page to avoid any confusion on your customers part in selecting the shipping services available to them. You can do this by going to Admin > Sites [Select Site] Settings > Instructions Tab. Enter your instructions in the "Shopping Cart" section.
