In order to install the SendMyParcel.com Opencart plugin, you will need two zip files; OpenCart Permission.zip & OpenCart Plugin.zip. These downloads are available by request - so please get in touch with us, here.
Once you’ve received both files, you can download and save them to your pc or laptop. The OpenCart Permission.zip will need to be installed first, followed by the OpenCart Plugin.zip.
Please follow the instructions outlined below;
1. OpenCart Permission.zip
In your web-shop, go to your admin panel. From here, click ‘Extensions’(1) followed by ‘Installer’(2). You can now select ‘Upload File’(3), and upload the OpenCart Permission.zip that you had saved to your laptop, or pc earlier.
Now click ‘Extensions’(4), followed by ‘Modifications’(5) and check to see if the status (circled) is shown as ‘Enabled’.
If it’s shown as disabled, click the ‘Action Icon’(6), which will enable it. You will need to also select the ‘Refresh Icon’(7), following this action.
**If the status is already shown as ‘Enabled’, then you do not need to change anything**
2. OpenCart Plugin.zip
(Please ensure that this file has also been downloaded)
Next, in your web-shop, go to your admin panel. From there, click ‘Extensions’(1) followed by ‘Installer’(2). Now select ‘Upload File’(3), and upload the OpenCart Plugin.zip that you had also saved to your laptop, or pc earlier.
Opencart will have successfully installed the OpenCart Plugin.zip. Once this is complete, go back to your admin panel and click ‘Extensions’(4).
Using the drop-down menu, located under ‘choose the extension type’(5), select ‘Modules’(6)
Now search for ‘Myparcel.com’(7) in the module list and click on the ‘Green Icon’(8) to activate the plugin. Once this has been done, you can then click on the ‘Blue Icon’(9), which will redirect you to the Myparcel.com API setting.
Now you can add your MyParcel API credentials; add your ‘Client ID’(11) and ‘Client Secret’(12) and you can also set the ‘Status’(10) to ‘Enabled’.
**Your client ID & Secret can be easily generated within the SendMyParcel.com portal, or if you prefer, you can ask a member of our team to lend a hand**
Finally, for security reasons you will need to disable and delete the MyParcel.com Installer Permission. To do this, you need to navigate back to your admin panel, then click ‘Extensions’(13) followed by ‘Modifications’(14). From here, you will need to click the ‘Red Icon’(15) which will disable the MyParcel.com Installer Permission.
Now select the ‘Checkbox’(16), followed by the ‘Delete Icon’(17). Lastly, select ‘Refresh’(18), at the top right-hand side of the screen.
Now this is complete, you’re now ready to start creating shipments in the SendMyParcel.com portal with OpenCart!!
