Plugin requirements

Before you begin, check that your WooCommerce store is compatible with PackageBee.

Configure product SKUs

Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) are merchant-defined codes that uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in WooCommerce are identical to the SKUs loaded into your warehouse management system.

Gather shipping methods

As part of the third-party fulfillment setup, a mapping must be created from each shipping method offered in the eCommerce system to the unique shipping code used by the fulfillment center.

Gather API credentials

Gather the information required to access the WooCommerce API.

Enable API access

Enter the API credentials in your PackageBee store to enable API access.

Enable Shipment Tracking

A Shipment Tracking extension is required to enable tracking numbers for WooCommerce orders. After you install the extension, PackageBee will populate tracking numbers in the order when they become available.
