We recommend integrating Consignor with your backend system, as this allows you to continue working in your current e-commerce system when you produce shipments. The majority of our customers use Consignor via an integration to their backend system. The main advantages of integration are:
- No need for retyping shipment data in different systems
- Automatic data transfer
- Automatic print of labels
- No need for introducing a new system to employees
- Set up your own automated shipping rules
- Access tracking information directly in your backend system
With Consignor plugins you can easily integrate your backend system to Consignor. The plugin is installed in your backend system, where you also add the connection details to Consignor. These are required to connect to Consignor’s Shipment Server API. If you don't have this information, contact Consignor Customer service who will be able to help you.
When your system has been integrated to Consignor and you have a carrier connected to your system, you are ready to handle your shipments easy and efficiently.
