FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What does Peoplevox need in order to set up your integration?

We simply need access to your API with all information regarding the size and format of your carrier labels and customs documents. Also the default package weight that is set within your MetaPack configurations. And finally the address of your warehouse.

Is it possible to specify exactly which carrier and service type an order should be dispatched with?

Yes, the ‘service code’ within Peoplevox relates to a ‘service group’ within MetaPack and in most cases this will provide MetaPack with a starting point in order to allocate a carrier and service type. For example, ‘standard’ or ‘express’. If you want to specify the exact carrier and service type that a particular order should be sent with, this information can be mapped to the ‘Attribute 1’ field of the sales order.  

What happens if I need to re-print the carrier label or the Peoplevox dispatch note for an order?

All of the relevant documents for a package can be re-printed at any time. This includes the Peoplevox dispatch note, the carrier label and any relevant customs documents. This is possible as all documents for each package are stored in a PDF format on the server.

What happens if I have not set up a relevant allocation rule for a package that I am dispatching?

If a relevant allocation rule has not been created within MetaPack an exception will be thrown by Peoplevox to notify the user that a carrier cannot be allocated and a carrier label cannot be printed.

Is it possible to dispatch multiple packages for one sales order using the MetaPack integration?

Yes, a new consignment will be created in MetaPack for each package and an individual tracking number will be generated for each package. The number of packages dispatched and the items dispatched within each package will be recorded against the sales order.
