Selecting LogisticsProvider for a shipping method will make a call to the 3PL provider to determine the cost to ship.
When adding an Visible (IntegraCore) ship method the 3PL Code field is required. Example: RTE:CST 02,03 (
The first section, in the instance RTE, determines the carrier used. RTE is used to get use whatever carrier has the best rate. Could be UPS, FDX, etc for specific carriers.
Possible Carrier Codes
Ship Speed Code
Next is the Service Code or Ship Speed Code. This is to specify the speed at which the item is shipped. Often times the service code will match the carrier code when a specified carrier is used (UPS:UPS 01). The number portion maps to settings set by Integracore for that company. If a company wants to have Next Day and Ground shipping then Integracore would need to set those up for the company and assign each method a service code (01, 02, 03, etc).
Lastly is the PayCode. This is used to specify how the shipping will be paid. In pretty much all cases, this will remain 03 (prepaid - meaning paid when order is placed). Other options could include payment upon delivery and such; however, at the time of this writing DirectScale only supports 03.
FORMAT IS IMPORTANT. The code must follow the format shown in the above example.
Possible Payment Codes
- Prepaid: 03
- Third Party Account: 04
- Collect: 01
