Configuring the Magento 1 extension
This article explains how to configure the Paazl extension for Magento 1.
Where to configure the extension
You will find the configuration parameters for Paazl's Magento extension in Magento Admin under
|Enabled||Optional||Choose whether or not you want to activate Paazl.|
Choose which environment you want to connect to.
|Webshop ID||Required||Enter the Paazl ID for the webshop you want to connect to. You will find this ID underin your Paazl web app account.|
|Password||Required||Enter your webshop's Paazl integration password. You will find this ID underin your Paazl web app account.|
|Paazl Perfect||Optional||Choose whether or not you want to use the Paazl Perfect lightbox (we recommend you do).|
Enter the title you want to have displayed above the delivery options you offer in your Magento checkout.
|Use collo shipment (where applicable)||Optional||
A "collo" shipment is a multi-package shipment. If you have such shipments, choose the package numbering style you want on shipping labels. For example:
|Base shipping rates on product price||Optional||Specify whether or not Magento shop product prices should include VAT.|
|Maximum number of labels||Optional||
Choose the maximum number of labels that will be printed for a shipment. Normally Paazl prints a label for each product in a shopping basket on the assumption that each product will have its own package. However, if individual products are packaged together you can use this parameter to limit the number of labels printed.
The default value is 1
|Insured value (where applicable)||Optional||Specify a default insured value for shipments where additional insurance applies.|
|Forward external orders to Paazl||Optional||
If you use a Magento connector for platforms such as Amazon and eBay, choose to have order information—including the shipping option concerned—automatically forwarded to Paazl once an order has been confirmed. That way you can use Paazl functionality for matters such as printing shipping labels, track & trace, and returns.
|Automatically refresh Paazl status in overview||Optional||
Choose whether or not you want order information to be automatically updated in the order overview in your Paazl web app account.
The default is enabled
Automatic refreshing might slow down performance, because Paazl calls its Web service to update statuses just before showing the overview.
|Update order status||Optional||
Choose whether or not you want to update an order's status once its shipping label has been printed. Specify the status you want to update it to using the "Update order status to" parameter.
We recommend you configure an email notification to be sent for the status change concerned. Configuring notifications explains how to do this.
|Update order status to||Optional||If you have set the "Update order status" parameter to Yes, specify the the status you want to update it to with this parameter.|
|Ship all items when generating label||Optional||Magento differentiates between the status of an order and the various items that belong to that order. Choose whether or not you want Paazl to set an order's Magento status to Shipped once you have generated a shipping label for the whole order. Magento will then automatically change the status of the underlying items to Shipped as well.|
|Send shipment confirmation mail||Optional||
Choose whether or not you want Magento to send a shipment confirmation mail when you print a shipping label.
This is not a Paazl notification email with a tracking code. If you want to send a Paazl notification email, you can configure it—including a tracking code—under C in your Paazl web app account.
If you send a Paazl notification email, set "Send shipment confirmation mail" to No in order to avoid sending both a Magento and a Paazl email.
|Shipping label module||Optional||
Choose whether or not you want Paazl to print shipping labels. If you select "Enable", the following items will appear in Magento Admin in thedropdown menu.
|Show shipping label sizes||Optional||
Paazl allows you to print shipping labels with different formats. Select the format you want. The formats you select will appear as printing options in Magento Admin in thedropdown menu. You can select several formats by holding down the Ctrl key (CMD on a Mac) while clicking the options concerned.
You cannot use the 10x15 format to print shipping labels that require a full a4 page (e.g. for the PostNL Global Pack shipping option).
|Date Preference Module||Optional||Enable this to provide a dropdown menu with possible delivery dates for the shipping option displayed in your Magento checkout. For an explanation of how Paazl works with delivery dates, see About delivery dates.|
|Limit delivery date preference to days ahead||Optional||If you have set the "Date Preference Module" to Enable, enter the number of possible delivery dates to display|
|Shipping Method Labels||Optional||
Override the default shipping option names that have been configured for you by Paazl Customer Support. You will find the names in your Paazl web app account under .
To override a default name, enter the shipping option identifier followed by a space and then the new name.
Press Enter on your keyboard to start a new line on which you can override another default name.
In the example below, we have overridden the "AVG" identifier's description with "PostNL Next Day" and "PAKJEGEMAK_NOTIFICATION" identifier's description with "PostNL Pakjegemak".
|Shipping Method Hints||Optional||
Add short descriptions to shipping options. These are shown below an option's name in your Magento checkout.
To add a description, enter a shipping option's identifier followed by a space and then the description.
Press Enter on your keyboard to start a new line on which you add a description for another shipping option.
You can use HTML tags to style the descriptions.
You will find your the shipping option identifiers in your Paazl web app account under.
This parameter has no effect on Paazl Perfect's display of shipping options. You can provide Paazl Perfect shipping options with descriptions in your Paazl web app account under .
|Shipping Method Sort Order||Optional||
Set the order in which Paazl shipping options are displayed in your Magento checkout, entering each shipping option on a new line.
Use the default shipping option identifiers in your Paazl web app account under
The default display order is by shipping rate, with the lowest rate at the top.
In the example below, the "PAKJEGEMAK_NOTIFICATION" shipping option will be displayed above the "AVG" shipping option in your Magento checkout.
|COD Payment method||Optional||
Display a specific payment method when a customer selects a COD delivery option.
If you have the OneStepCheckout extension installed, set the extension's "Update payment methods when chosen shipping method" parameter to Yes.
Since the COD price is included in the shipping costs, select a (COD) payment method with value zero.
|Group service point-based methods||Optional||
If you are working with multiple pickup location (service point) networks, combine the networks into a single Google Map locator.
The default value is Yes
Paazl Perfect overrules this setting, which is the preferred behavior.
|Show configuration options related to Dynalogic||Optional||
Display Dynalogic configuration options in the Paazl extension's configuration screen.
By default these options are not shown because they affect how delivery time ranges are displayed and Paazl Perfect is a better way of doing this.
|Displayed Error Message||Optional||
Enter an error message to display if something goes wrong with your Paazl connection.
This message will be displayed in addition to an error message returned by Paazl's SOAP Web service.
|Show Paazl - specific error message||Optional||Activate the error message you entered for "Displayed Error Message".|
|Show fallback shipping method on error||Optional||
Switch to a fallback mechanism in the event that your Magento webshop loses its connection with Paazl. The fallback mechanism will enable your customers to check out with the shipping option and price you set for the "Fallback shipping method name" and "Fallback shipping method rate" parameters respectively.
You will need to manually register the orders concerned in Paazl later.
The fallback mechanism will not be activated for delivery matrix configuration errors.
|Fallback shipping method name||Optional||Display a shipping option to be displayed in the event that your Magento webshop loses its connection with Paazl.|
|Fallback shipping method rate||Optional||Display a shipping rate to be displayed in the event that your Magento webshop loses its connection with Paazl.|
|Version||N/A||The version of the Paazl Magento extension that you have installed.|
