Aims & Preparation
Most of this is included if you get the Pro Installation & Setup Service
We're going to get into the main parts of autoCN22 here, and have a quick look at setting up its options. We'll then be set to add Customs labels to integrated labels, or print them standalone in zebra labels or A4 sheets.
Follow the Easy Install Guide to get autoCN22 up and running - make sure that you're running a recent version of pickPack before installing autoCN22.
In short - once setup it will make you, your staff, and your customers happy - orders will go out faster, with less mistakes, and will be delivered faster and at a lower cost. Your customers will have no customs surprises, as the labels will be correct, and the courier won't return parcels that need a customs label that might otherwise have been missed. Of course, there's also less risk of annoying the customs man with badly-filled-out forms.
Can I show Cost instead of Price?
Yes, you can show:
- Total sold price including shipping
- Total sold price excluding shipping
- Total cost price
- Total from a custom attribute
Nudge the label to fit integrated labels
Using integrated labels? (eg. you have a Packing Sheet, with the address label and CN22 label printing in two built-in cutout label spaces at the bottom of the page).
You'll likely need to 'nudge' the printed CN22 label to fit into the pre-cut label. Do this inside the relevant config area of pickPack (eg. inside the Packing Sheet --> Bottom of Page section).
Eg. here we've nudged the image right and down a bit:
Resize the customs label
In the same 'Bottom of Page' section as above, you can also enter a resize % to make the printed label smaller or bigger.
Leave it at 100 (%) for the default size, or eg. 80 to shrink it 20%, or 120 to enlarge it 20%.
Filtering Specific Countries
You can automatically filter countries (and country-groups) from printing a CN22 label with their order, with the installation of courierRules.
Just select the relevant option in the Orders Grid massaction menu:
- PDF Packing Sheet, if you're using integrated labels, or
- PDF Zebra Label, if you're outputting address labels
- PDF CN22 Label, if you just want the customs label and nothing else
Here's some examples of the kind of labels that you can create.
While we have only seen good results with autoCN22 - we recommend that the label outputs are checked for accuracy before shipping.
