The following guide contains an overview of using MyHermes with One Stop Order Processing, including how to generate labels and add services.
This feature is available in the Professional, Premium and Enterprise subscriptions of One Stop Order Processing.
When testing and experimenting with generating courier labels it may be beneficial to use Test Mode. Test Mode allows you to trial different options without buying courier labels or entering your courier account credentials. You will be unable to send parcels until you are using live mode not test mode.
You can use Test Mode by going Couriers -> Setup Couriers -> Courier Setup -> MyHermes ->Test Mode
Setting up MyHermes in One Stop Order Processing-
Step 1 :Entering your MyHermes credentials –
When setting up couriers in One Stop Order Processing, each courier has a different tab making it clear and easy to change different settings and options dependant on your courier. You can find your MyHermes tab by following the instructions below.
Couriers-> Setup Couriers -> Courier Setup -> Select the MyHermes tab.
Step 2: Creating a MyHermes account -
Alternative you can click the link in section 1 of the One Stop Order Processing MyHermes tab.
Step 3 : Entering your default consignment information -
In section 3 of the MyHermes tab you are able to include your default information, such as the default weight and size of your package and shipping information such as delivery instructions and description of the goods. If your parcels vary in weight and size you can use our other options such as ‘Calculate average order weight when orders are sent to the courier’ or you can input the different weight and size of the order each time using out ‘Ask for the order size/weight as each order is sent to the courier’.
Please Note – If you choose to leave this section blank then values from each order will be used.
Step 4: Printing –
Section 4 allows you to select your printer, this is handy if you have a different printer per courier. For example, you could have a dedicated printer for MyHermes labels that fit 6x4" integrated label paper.
Please Note – You can buy 6 x4" integrated label paper from One Stop Order Processing by clicking the following link.
Alternatively, you can follow the link in One Stop Order Processing by going-
Courier -> Courier Setup -> Setup Courier -> and Clicking ‘(Buy CL1 paper)’ under the Stationery to use header.
Step 5: Setting up MyHermes Services-
Next to your printer selection, you can add available services to selected services depending on your needs, you can do this by selecting the available services on the left hand side and using the ‘Add>’ button to move them to the Selected services side where they will then be available to use. If you would like to remove a service from your selected services you can use the ‘<Remove’ button to place them back into the Available services list.
