The ApiShip module is an integrator of delivery services for the CS-Cart Multi-Vendor marketplace

ApiShip is the largest consolidator of transport companies, which facilitates the delivery process for marketplaces. It unites more than 40 delivery services, automates the creation of a delivery order, prepares accompanying documents, and tracks the process of cargo delivery.

The ApiShip module connects the marketplace site and the ApiShip service. That is, you install one module for managing delivery services, instead of forty. This speeds up the work of the site, reduces the load on the server. In addition, it removes the issue of compatibility conflict.

Managing interaction with transport companies is available in the personal account for both the marketplace administrator and the seller.

The module automatically generates an order for delivery to a transport company and generates address labels, waybills and acceptance and transfer certificates of goods. The vendor prints these documents and attaches them to the boxes. In this form, he passes the order to the transport company. Then the vendor tracks the movement of the cargo through the personal account. The ApiShip module automatically changes the delivery statuses in the personal account.

The contract with the transport companies is concluded directly.

Aggregator and consolidator

We are talking about two different approaches to mediation between the marketplace and transport companies.

Aggregator is a company that enters into contracts with different transport companies, promising to bring a lot of customers, and getting more favorable conditions for this. Then the company enters into contracts with customers, adding its own percentage to the cost of the transport company's services.

You enter into a contract with the aggregator on the terms offered by him. And pay not directly to the transport company, but to the aggregator. Accordingly, the aggregator assumes responsibility for the delivery and integrity of the cargo.As a result, you get a small discount, plus simplify interaction with transport companies: one contract, instead of several for each company separately.

The consolidator is a company that undertakes only the creation of orders under your contract to various transport companies. At the same time, you have the opportunity to negotiate with a transport company on more favorable terms for you, for example, if you have a sufficiently large volume of deliveries. In this case, the benefit may be significantly greater than when working with an aggregator.

Module operation process

The ApiShip module organizes the interaction of the marketplace site with the selected delivery services, regardless of which of the two models is used to build interaction with sellers:

  • The marketplace itself delivers the goods to the buyer;
  • The vendor delivers the goods to the buyer on its own behalf.

Delivery of goods on behalf of the marketplace

In this case, the marketplace delivers the goods on its own behalf. Accordingly, the contract with transport companies is concluded on behalf of the marketplace. 

The marketplace receives an order from the buyer and money, both for the product itself and for its delivery to the specified address. Then, if the seller's goods are stored in the warehouse of the marketplace, the warehouse employees pack the order and transfer it to the courier of the transport company.

If the goods are stored in the seller's warehouse, then he packs the order himself, brings it to the order acceptance point and hands it over to the transport company on behalf of the marketplace.

In this case, delivery management is completely carried out on the side of the marketplace. If the buyer does not pick up his order from the PVZ, they are returned to the warehouse under the marketplace agreement. He also pays for the movement of goods in this case. The higher the turnover, the lower the delivery price, both for sellers and buyers.

Delivery of goods on behalf of the seller

The module connects more than 40 transport companies for sellers.

The buyer places an order. Based on the parameters of the goods that he added to this order, the shipping cost will be calculated for him. However, it is important to understand that the actual cost of delivery depends not only and not so much on the size and weight of each individual product in the order, but also on how exactly the goods will be arranged and packaged together.

In addition, the seller may for some reason not specify the actual dimensions and weight of the goods in the product card. In this case, the default parameters specified in the module settings are used to calculate the cost of delivery. Naturally, not all products fall into these parameters.

This may change the cost of delivery when transmitting information to the transport company. Sometimes, the difference can be up to 30%. The marketplace may be in the red.

To avoid this, some marketplaces offer sellers special conditions: they reduce the commission percentage for the seller, but at the same time they ask to make the delivery free for the buyer.

In this case, the seller delivers the goods at his own expense and from his contract.

At the same time, the module automates the process of transmitting order information to the transport company via the marketplace. That is, the buyer places an order, the marketplace calculates the estimated cost of delivery for the seller, then, when the seller downloads information about the packaging of the order, recalculates a more accurate price and transfers the order to the transport company. The seller only has to pack the order, print out the accompanying documents and transfer the box to the transport company. At the same time, the seller will be able to track the path of the parcel in real time on the marketplace website: 19 status options indicating the exact state of delivery at a given time.

At the same time, if there is a two-factor payment on the site, with funds frozen on the buyer's account, then at the time of transfer of goods to the transport company, the money on the buyer's account will be unfrozen and transferred to the seller. And at the time of delivery of the goods to the buyer, a receipt will be knocked out. Also, this functionality returns money to the buyer if the buyer did not pick up the goods from the PVZ.

Chain from ordering to completion of delivery

  • Creating an order, freezing money (optional);
  • Status change to "Accepted by the transport company", money is transferred to the seller's account (optional);
  • The order is on the way, each point of this path is marked with the corresponding status: accepted by the transport company, transferred for sorting, ready for delivery, issued;
  • The goods were issued to the buyer, a receipt for the goods was issued on behalf of the seller;
  • If the buyer did not pick up the goods from the PVZ, after the expiration of the storage period, the transport company returns the goods back to the seller's warehouse, the status changes to "Canceled", the money is returned to the buyer (optional).

Each seller chooses the transport companies with which he is ready to work. For each transport company, he can create several delivery methods, for example, for transporting goods of different categories. Often, for jewelry and some other categories of goods, transport companies require a separate contract, since they require other types of transportation. 

Setting up transport companies

The seller enters into a contract with the transport company and logs in through the marketplace website using the ApiShip module. The marketplace administrator checks the availability of the transport company and the selected tariff. And if everything is in order, then he sets up the necessary delivery methods for specific tariffs for the seller.

Also, the marketplace can give the seller the opportunity to independently configure delivery methods taking into account his needs. In this case, the seller can only check the correctness of the settings and approve them.

For convenient configuration of delivery methods, the administrator can limit the seller's choice of tariffs of the transport company in advance. For example, CDEK has a huge number of tariffs, and there is no need to dump information about all of them to the seller.

Therefore, the administrator initially specifies the tariffs that the marketplace works with in the settings. The seller, setting up the delivery method, sees only those tariffs that the administrator has confirmed.

Calculation of the cost of delivery and transfer of data to the transport company

The module calculates the cost of delivery based on the tariffs on the transport company's website. However, for a number of reasons, it may not work. This may be technical work on the site, server reboot, and so on.

If you request information about tariffs at this moment, the calculation of the cost of delivery will not be available. Without receiving the necessary information about the cost of delivery, the buyer can go to another site.

To avoid this, the module stores in memory the latest received data on the tariffs of the delivery service, and in case the website of the transport company does not respond, it uses information from memory for calculation. That is, the shipping cost will be calculated in any case.

He also saves his calculations in memory, and as soon as the transport company's website starts working, he immediately transmits information about the order with the exact cost. This greatly facilitates the process of setting up transport companies, and, therefore, facilitates the process of entering the seller on your trading platform.

Order validation before packing

After placing an order, information about it is sent to the transport company to make sure that the specified by the buyer is correctly recognized in the transport company.This is necessary in order to exclude the refusal of delivery due to an address not correctly read.

This is especially true for residents of the Moscow region. Now it includes many districts and small villages that were previously considered independent settlements. And when writing down an address, it is important to specify all its components. In addition, there are cases when the actual address is located in one locality, and the address of the post office to which the specified building belongs is located in a neighboring locality. Even if two houses are located across the street from each other.

Different transport companies may record such addresses in different ways. A striking example is, for example, the address of the new fulfillment warehouse of the Russian Post – Vnukovo-2. Even in different maps it is indicated differently. So, Google Maps shows the address: Naro-Fominsky district, 102976, village. Marushkinskoye, d, Sharapovo, Moscow region, 143390, and Yandex.Maps indicate a different address: Russia, Moscow, Marushkinskoye settlement, block No. 63, dv1s2.

For the module to work correctly, it is necessary to match the fields of the seller's profile and the fields of the buyer's profile in the settings. This increases the accuracy of information transmission.

Often people enter incorrect information as an address. For example, the numbers of houses or apartments are written in text, not numbers, or without separating commas. There may also be typos in the street names.

Another possible problem is when the PVZ point, which the buyer has chosen, is planned to be closed in the near future. Information about the work of branches is not always transmitted in a timely manner.

Sending the order to the transport company after confirmation

There are cases when the buyer is not completely sure about his order. They need to be contacted, consulted, if necessary, to make changes to the order. If you immediately send information about such an order to a transport company, then you will have to make changes to it later, sometimes more than once.

To avoid this, the ApiShip module sends the order to the transport company only after the order receives the status "Ready to be sent to the transport company".

Using a separate cargo space

Goods of different sizes are shipped by many transport companies at different rates. Therefore, if, for example, a T-shirt and an ottoman appear in one order, the transport company may refuse to transport such an order. The fact is that orders are added up and counted as one shipment, which under such conditions may not correspond to the parameters of any tariff of the transport company.

In addition, products such as a microwave oven or other household appliances in their original packaging do not require additional packaging in boxes.

Therefore, we have added to the ApiShip module the ability to issue some goods as a separate cargo place. When filling out the product card, the seller indicates that this product is delivered as a separate cargo.

And if the buyer puts T-shirts and a microwave in the basket, or they are packed separately from each other and counted as different shipments. Thanks to this, each of them will easily fit into the parameters of their tariff.

We also added the ability to edit the cargo of the place. This is done in case the size of the product does not fully correspond to those indicated in the product card.

Default dimensions

The tariffs of transport companies have their own limitations. Moreover, not only the upper border is limited, but also the lower one. And if the minimum weight in the tariff is 100 g, then the cost of delivery of such goods as, for example, seeds or spare parts for the phone will not be calculated. Their weight is significantly less than the minimum.

To solve this problem, we have added the ability in the settings of each tariff to specify the minimum size of the goods by default, which are transferred to the transport company if the size of the goods is less than the minimum requirements in the tariff.

Thanks to this, it is possible to send goods weighing from 0.5 g and measuring from 0.5 cm on either side.

Also, default dimensions are required when not all delivery parameters are specified in the product card, for example, if incomplete information is received from the supplier.

Tariff Guide

We have added a tariff directory to the module. When filling out information about the order packaging, the module checks the dimensions of the boxes, the weight and the cost of the shipment and compares them with the tariff restrictions. If the shipment does not meet these requirements, the module will highlight the corresponding field in red.

Loading order packaging data via CSV

In order not to waste time manually filling in the packaging data for each order, you can download a CSV file with information about orders. In the file, you specify information about the packaging of goods: which boxes you use, which goods are in which boxes, which goods are sent in separate packages. After that, all you have to do is upload the file back to the system and close the orders.

Order communication

In some cases, it may be necessary to make changes to an existing order. For example, if the buyer wanted to change the quantity of goods in the order, or the seller's warehouse did not have the right quantity of goods. However, the created order already appears in various documents and systems of the site.

Therefore, instead of editing the old order, the module creates a new order with the specified quantity of goods, and associate it with the already created shipment in ApiShip. To do this, the ID of the desired shipment is indicated in the corresponding field. The order status will change automatically.

Prefixes

We have added the ability to create prefixes to the module. By the prefix, the seller will immediately understand at which site the order was created and to which transport company it will be sent.

Cargo pickup from the warehouse

Almost every transport company has tariffs under which the courier picks up the cargo from your warehouse and delivers it directly to the buyer. For the buyer, such delivery is especially expensive, as a rule, from 300 rubles.

However, if your customers often use the services of a particular transport company, and you have more than 10 orders per day, then you can order a mass cargo pickup. The transport company arrives 1-2 times a day, depending on the number of orders, and takes everything prepared by this time and delivers it to its warehouse for sorting. The cost of this service is significantly lower, which reduces the cost of delivery for the buyer.

Setting up additional services

Each transport company has its own set of additional services:

  • Cash on delivery;
  • Payment by card upon receipt;
  • Delivery of several items for fitting;
  • Product control;
  • Partial issuance and so on.

All additional services can be configured for each tariff in the personal account on the marketplace website for a specific transport company and a specific tariff. You get the most flexible tool for setting up all transport companies in one place.

Beta: Creating delivery methods from a template

No matter how detailed the instructions for creating delivery methods for vendors are, you still can't be sure that they will set everything up correctly. Ready-made templates of delivery methods for vendors will allow them to create delivery methods in a few clicks, while not making mistakes in the settings. This will make it much easier for vendors to enter your site.

Compatibility

In combination with the Logistics module, it automatically makes delivery from the seller's warehouse.

The module is also compatible with the following modules:

  • Assembly order (collection of cargo to the final buyer);
  • Purchase order (collection of orders to the sorting point for sorting and delivery to the buyer);
  • Delivery order (collection of cargo to the sorting point for repacking and delivery to the buyer);
  • Order for acceptance (collection of cargo for movement between warehouses).
