The shipping module provides you with the ability to define whatever delivery method you wish. The shipping integration is not accomplished by creating specialized shipping methods but rather through the manual assignment of carriers to orders in the order management module. In this case, the shipping module just serves to notify the user about the shipping options you provide, how much they cost, and which delivery nations are permitted or prohibited.

Sendcloud is a shipping program designed specifically for online retailers that streamline the whole shipping process by delivering an all-in-one service. It is possible to print off shipping labels straight from the Shopware Admin, and the brands are paid via the Sendcloud account. Shipping services are available in several configurations, and clients may pick how they wish to receive their packages. In some instances, depending on how the shipping method has been configured, a map will appear when you select a shipping option, showing parcel collection and drop-off services that can take the packages.

Utilize Sendcloud

You may connect to your Sendcloud account in the “Shipping” section under Settings > Shop > Shipping by clicking Connect, or if you have not yet made an account, you can do so by clicking Register.

In addition to the three backup payment methods, Mollie provides you with a choice of extra payment options that may be added straight into your shop’s checkout process. Using this strategy, you may accept payments via various payment ways without having to create separate accounts with each of the payment providers. In order to receive payments from several payment providers, you simply need one Mollie account. You may then have the funds from this account transferred to a chosen bank account on a regular basis.

Before being able to utilize the Mollie payment methods, you must first connect your business to a valid Mollie account. In order to do this, go to Settings > Shop > Payment methods and click on the applicable option there.
