To install an instant two-way integration between Track-POD and WooCommerce follow the next steps:
- Go to Settings->Integration, find WooCommerce and click Install.
- A pop-up window opens.
Note: there are certain requirements for the software version and set-up.
- Enter your WooCommerce store url.
- Tick the box Import delivery information to import delivery date and delivery time slot from the WooCommerce Order Delivery extension.
- Tick the box Export shipment information for shipping details to be extracted from Track-POD to WooCommerce custom fields. Click Confirm.
Track-POD creates several custom fields for your WooCommerce orders to which shipment info is exported:
-Once an order is imported to Track-POD it receives status 'waiting-delivery' in WooCommerce.
-Once the order is en route the status changes to 'in-progress'
-Once the order is delivered the status changes to 'delivered', 'partially', or 'not-delivered' depending on the actual delivery result.
If the order is not delivered the reason for non-delivery is inserted.
Once the order is imported to Track-POD a tracking link is uploaded to this field. You will be able to track the order once the route is started by a driver.
Once the delivery is completed the 'delivered-quantity' field appears in which the actual quantity delivered is inserted.
Please, note that Track-POD automatically synchronizes with WooCommerce every minute. Thus, don't worry if your orders do not appear on the Track-POD dashboard instantly or the status in WooCommerce is not updated right after the delivery is completed.
