I have built my online store on ecwid e-commerce platform.
I need some customisation to be done.
Ecwid provides their API.
I need shipping automation. Below are the features that I require specifically.
1. Order is received. (Assume, customer selected fedex shipping method)
2. A new tab will be added in our ecwid backend panel somewhere, let say name of tab is Shipping Automation.
3. Under this tab, all orders will be shown which are paid and have fedex shipping method.
4. few more column will be added against each order which will show me fedex actual shipping charges, delivery time, etc so that I can decide which orders, i have to ship via fedex and which not..
5. Now when those orders are ready for ship i.e .goods are ready with me, Then I can select all such orders and click on ship and generate labels for all in bulk and can print them.
6. Now these shipping labels must be accurate and has to be approved by fedex also. You can share with me sample label and I will intimate you about its approval.
7. Now when these labels are generated from the information which we already provided in catalog like weight, size, etc, the tracking number should automatically be updated in order panel and customer shall receive shipping tracking details via email and via sms too if possible easily without extra cost.
8. Now your system will check at regular intervals for delivery status of those packets. There should be option to set this interval in shipping automation tab or panel. Now as soon as any packet gets delivered, the system should automatically mark order status as delivered and then customer will receive an email accordingly.
SO this is shipping automation process for one carrier i.e. fedex India. I hope you can have access to their API by google search.
And we would like to have this integration for few popular shipping carriers, like FedEx, aramex, BlueDart etc. they are popular in India. APIs of all can be made available to you.
Also when there are multiple carriers then there shall be an option in shipping automation tab that will show best carrier available for particular address according to price, delivery time etc.
API of logistic companies and ecwid can be made available.
