Please check chapter 4 on how to initiate a Paazl update in the Order overview.

Also see 18 in this chapter. Go to chapter 5 for more information on how this module works in Magento.

14. Shipping Method Labels:

Paazl displays the default reference names of shipping options in the webshop. For instance, AVG is the default reference name for normal PostNL shipments. Example: to change the name AVG, type the following in the box: AVG PostNL overdag

Now AVG will be displayed as PostNL overdag. Use a new line for each reference name you wish to change.

Check your default reference names in your Paazl account at Instellingen/Account/Overzicht verzendopties (left column).

15. Shipping Method Hints:

You can add an extra line of text to each shipping option. It will be displayed when selecting the shipping option.

(6)

Use the default reference name followed by a space and the line of text. You may use HTML:

AVG <i>Tussen 09.00 en 18.00</i>

Check your default reference names in your Paazl account at Instellingen/Account/Overzicht verzendopties (left column).

16. Shipping Method Sort Order:

You can set the order of Paazl shipping options in your Magento checkout. Use the default reference names and place them in the order of your preference.

17. COD Payment method:

When customer selects a COD delivery, you can display a specific payment method.

When using a onestep checkout extension, set ‘Update payment methods when chosen shipping method’ at ‘Yes’ in this extension.

Tip: since the COD price is included in the delivery costs, select here a (COD) payment method with value zero. 18. Group service point…:

When you are working with multiple service point networks, you have the opportunity to combine the networks into one Google Map locator.

Set value to ‘Yes’.

4. Catalog-Manage Products-Edit-Paazl

1. Matrix: When selecting a Matrix, Paazl will display the shipping options and rates that are configured for this particular Matrix. You can find these at Instellingen-Bezorgmatrix in your Paazl account. Selecting a Matrix will overrule the use of Length, Width, Height and Weight (see catalog-manage products-edit)

2. Length: The Length of a product can be used for Matrix selection. In case of multiple Products, Paazl will display the ‘highest’ Matrix

(corresponding with the longest product). In cm.

3. Width: The Width of a product can be used for Matrix selection. In case of multiple Products, Paazl will display the ‘highest’ Matrix

(corresponding with the widest product). In cm.

4. Height: The Height of a product can be used for Matrix selection. In case of multiple Products, Paazl will display the ‘highest’ Matrix

(corresponding with the highest product) . In cm.

For more information on the Paazl Matrices, we refer to the Paazl Matrix Instellingen manual

5. Customs description: Only mandatory for Fedex and UPS 6. Country of manufacture: Only mandatory for Fedex

Note: Weight is mandatory for DHL, Fedex, GLS and UPS shipments

Magento allows you to update the Attributes of multiple products in one go. So in case you wish to set the same Matrix value for a large set of products:

 Go to Catalog /Manage Products.

 Select your products and then select Update Attributes.  Set Matrix at […] and all will be changed to […].

5. Sales-Orders

 Print your address labels and packing slips (with integrated address label) via the Submit dropdown menu. First select your order(s) on the left hand side.

Select PDF Laser shipping labels or PDF Zebra shipping labels, depending on the type of printer you are using.

You can only use this functionality if you have requested for a Pakbon module (see

http://www.paazl.com/content/43/Modules.html for more information)

Note: when printing a packing slip, Magento requires you to first create a shipment!

 Update the Paazl status of your orders via the Submit dropdown menu. First select your order(s) on the left hand side. You may use ‘Select visible’ to select all orders in your list.

Select Update Paazl status via the Submit dropdown menu. Your shop will now connect to the Paazl platform to collect the latest status updates on the selected orders.

(11)

 You can search for a particular Paazl status by selecting this status in the Paazl status drop down. Hit Search and Magento will display all relevant orders.

 You have the opportunity to automatically move the Status column to ‘Complete’ when the address label has been printed.

Perform the Paazl status update procedure. In case the Paazl Status has moved to ‘Ready to ship’ (=label printed), the Status moves to ‘Complete’. See chapter 1 how to enable this setting.

6. Delivery Date module

With the Paazl Delivery Date module you can offer clients specific delivery dates. The Delivery Date module can be used via the Paazl Magento Extension 1.2.0.

Step 1: Purchase the Paazl Delivery Date module. Contact your Paazl account manager for this.

Step 2: Configure the Delivery Date module in your Paazl account. See manual ‘Bezorgdatum module’ which you can download via Help/Downloads.

Step 3: Activate the module in the Magento Paazl backend. See 12 in chapter 1. Note that you may have to log out and log in again.

Step 4: Check your shipping option. The dropdown menu with delivery dates is to automatically appear below the shipping option.

(12)

Step 5: Set the amount of delivery dates you wish to display. See 18 in chapter 1.

A client can now select a preferred delivery date. When the order is stored in Magento, the preferred delivery date is displayed.

Magento tells you when to ship products that have a preferred delivery date. Go to Orders – Orders to ship (if you don’t see Orders to ship, please log out and log in again).

Here, Magento will display the orders that need to be shipped today. Note that these could include orders with different delivery dates, because this depends on the configuration of the Delivery Date module in your Paazl account.

7. Bugs & fixes

 Older Paazl extensions may prevent you from exporting products. This is caused by attributes 'number_per_envelope' and 'days_to_restock' in your database. We advise you to delete both:

delete from eav_attribute where attribute_code in ('number_per_envelope', 'days_to_restock');

 When using an extension that helps you to print your packing slip (like Fooman) you may get an error code that refers to a conflict with Paazl:

Parcelshipper_Paazl_Model_Order_Pdf_Shipment

We advise you to switch off the code in the Paazl extension that is causing this error: - Go to /app/code/local/Parcelshipper/Paazl/etc/config.xml, line 70: - Change <order_pdf_shipment>Parcelshipper_Paazl_Model_Order_Pdf_Shipment</order_p df_shipment> Into <!--order_pdf_shipment>Parcelshipper_Paazl_Model_Order_Pdf_Shipment</order_pd f_shipment-->

- Refresh your Magento cache

 When a general conflict arises with another extension, Paazl can help you fix the issue and have both extensions cooperate. Paazl will charge you on a per hour basis.
