Simply connect Shipcloud to your WooCommerce shop and create your shipping labels directly from your backend.

In this article you will learn which settings you can make in your WooCommerce backend, besides the settings in your Shipcloud plug-in (LINK), to make your shipping easier.

Shipping zones

If that you want to offer your buyers the choice of shipping method, it is necessary to add Shipcloud as a shipping method in the corresponding shipping zone.

In the menu item "WooCommerce >> Settings >> Shipping" you can set your shipping zones.

Click on "Add shipping zone". An input mask will then open where you can define a new shipping zone including name, zone regions and shipping methods. You can create the latter via the "Add shipping method" button.

Then click on "Save changes" so that all your settings for this shipping zone are applied.

If you later want to make changes to your created shipping zones or delete them, scroll over the name of the zone and click "Edit" or "Delete".

Parcel templates

To simplify your workflow a bit, you have the option to create parcel templates in WooCommerce.

Under "Products >> Parcel Templates" or alternatively via the menu item "Shipcloud >> Parcel Templates" you can create individual templates for your standard package formats.

Click the "Add new" button at the top to create a new package template. An input field will then open where you can enter the package dimensions, the weight and the carrier-service-package type combination. In addition, you can set one of your templates as the default package template, which is then automatically preselected when a shipping label is created.

Then click on "Publish" in the top right-hand corner so that your package template is finally adopted.
