Foxpost order exporting, shipping label printing and tracking code

Created by Erik, Modified on Mon, 13 Mar 2023 at 05:35 PM by Erik

You can set up a connection between Parcely in your store and the Foxpost self-service environment. With this API connection you will be able to:

  • Export Foxpost pick-up point orders to Foxpost self-service.
  • Import shipping labels from Foxpost's self-service.
  • Import the Foxpost tracking code for the order.

Adding API keys to your store

You can find the Foxpost username, password and API key from your Foxpost self-service portal ( If you are not able to find them, then please contact your Foxpost contact person or their support.

To activate Foxpost order exporting open Parcely app in your store and move to "Service Providers"→select "Foxpost"→check "Automated data exchange". 

After inserting the username, password and API key please select the label PDF format for your store. All Foxpost pick-up point order shipping labels will be generated by Foxpost based on the selected format. Format selection can be changed later but already generated labels will stay in the previously selected format. 

Foxpost has made a Locker size selection mandatory and it has to be selected before sending order data to the Foxpost system. We have added a Default locker size option to save time when managing the orders. 

Important: You still have to approve every order locker size before it's sent to Foxpost and you change the locker size for every order if needed. 


Printing shipping labels

After order exporting has been set up you can print all Foxpost pick-up point shipping labels from the Parcely app Orders view. Firstly you will see a red error message that asks you to confirm or select a locker size for the order. If you have selected the default locker size, then it will be preselected for you.

If the locker size is correct, then click on the "Export Order" button and order data will be sent to Foxpost. In a few seconds, you will see that the label printing button will switch to green and you can print the label by clicking on it. 

Tracking code

The tracking code is saved to your store order only if you are fulfilling orders through the Parcely app Orders view. Parcely will save the tracking code itself and Foxpost tracking URL to the order and also include it in your store order confirmation email. If you would choose to Fulfill orders in Shopify order management, then you would need to copy and paste the tracking code and URL manually.
