Shopify Urb-it App – integration for Urb-it

Shopify Urb-it App

This Shopify Urb-it Integration is the solution for you if you are using Urb-it for sending your packages and Shopify Platform for managing your shipments.

This app will show Urb-it’s time slots in Shopify’s Checkout. The selected timeslot will be saved in the Shopify order and order details will be synced to Urb-it’s system. You can print the label and book transport from within Shopify Platform.

You can let the sync happen automatically and instantly when an order is received in Shopify store, or you can choose to control everything manually.

Requirements / Compatibility

Shopify Plan:
This app can be installed and used on all Shopify plans. The app is certified “Partner Friendly App”, so it is entirely free to install and test on development stores.
Visibility in Checkout page:
If you want to display the Urb-it shipping options directly in Shopify Checkout, then you must have enabled the “Carrier Service API” before you install the app. This feature is by default available in the “Advanced Shopify” and “Shopify Plus” subscriptions. If you have a lower plan, you can contact Shopify support for enabling it as a paid addon of $20 per month or for free if your subscription is paid on annual basis.

If you experience any problem with the installation or features, please try with one of the tested browsers. App is certified “Partner Friendly App”, hence compatible with Shopify development stores.

Features

Architecture  
When consumer place order from Shopify store, the available delivery time slot will be listed among the shipping options in Shopify Checkout. The option selected by consumer will be saved on the Shopify order for merchant processing. If automatic sync is enabled, then order details will automatically be sent to Gordon Last Mile Platform. Shopify’s Carrier Service API addon is required for showing time slot in checkout.

Manual Sync

Open the “Manual Sync” tab on this app, and click on “GET” button beside the newly placed order. Now the app will retrieve valid delivery time slot for the order, and you can see them in the drop down menu. Now select one of the listed timeslot and click on the “>>” sync sign to create a record in Gordon Last Mile Platform.

Options in Checkout

You can show Gordon Delivery timeslot options in Shopify checkout if you have access to carrier service api from Shopify.
