Some time ago, La Poste (#1 french postal company) gave developers an API to track letters and parcels from its 3 main services : La Poste, Colissimo and Chronopost.
As we did not provide any module based on those services, it was the occasion for us to develop a free module accessible to all the PrestaShop community.
Once an order is made by a customer, the most important for him is to be updated about his product(s) tracking. The module is a professional tracking automated solution for your back and front office PrestaShop,
The module offers this functionnalities :
- Tracking of parcels made with La Poste, Colissimo and Chronopost
- A new tab listing orders and trackings, with filters
- A sum up section in your order sheet (back-office)
- A sum up section in the customer's order details (front-office)
- Automated order status update according to La poste tracking
- La Poste API, therefore, the solution is durable
- Add the tracking number in the order list in the back-office
The module is made to be simple, efficient and intuitive. The functionning of the module relies on the use of a cron task that regularly update the orders' tracking.
The module allows seller to automatically add the cron task in the PrestaShop Cronjobs module (available here).
The cron task URL is also avaialble in case the seller would want to configure it on his own server, or another online service.
The search bar allows you to fetch a group of orders or a particular order, by : ID, date, customer, carrier, destination, order state, tracking number or tracking status.
The last column of the table contains a button that redirect you to the La Poste tracking website if you wish to get more details about the order.
The module also display a new section in the order sheet with the last tracking status of the order.
On the front-office, the customer has an access to this information in his/her order detail.
The module is compatible with PrestaShop 1.6+ . Should be compatible with PrestaShop 1.5 as it is really similar to 1.6. The last PrestaShop 1.4 version is 3 years old, no need to maintain compatibility for it.
The module is available on GitHub. Any contribution is welcomed.
