Hopefully this will help others, searching for An Post gives so so many results.

I was just about to post a question on how to do this when I came across this official guide:

It's actually setup via Scurri. I've yet to test it as I'm still in test mode.

Sounds good. I will look to test is soon myself. I will look into testing it and come back here if there is anything to note after following the instructions. 

Thanks again for bringing this to the attention of the community David. Hopefully someone else can get some value from it too!

Hi Nick - I'm trying to test this integration as we use the An Post Hub all the time. Just set it up this evening but it doesn't seem to be integrating - did you get it to work?

 

Thanks,

 

Garry

Hi @GarryL,

 

For me I wasn't able to implement it, but this was because I didn't have enough orders to be eligible for the account with An Post which you need to set this up and not to do with anything on the Shopify admin side of setting it up!

No worries at all, Garry! 

 

I reached out to them from this link where it says to talk to an account manager:

But to have a business account and speak to one, you will need to be doing around 200 orders per year which is around 40 a week. Then with that account you can connect it to the Shopify admin.

 

Best of luck with it all!

Yeah, we've been using Business Hub for a year now - at the moment I've 800 orders on Shopify to ship through An Post so the integration would be great. I followed the steps but it's not syncing unfortunately. 

 

Just to make sure I've it done right on Shopify - does this sound right to you?

I created an app in the Develop Apps section and gave it the permissions (I don't see any link called "Show inactive Admin API permissions") - then simply took the API key and Secret Key and store URL into the ecommerce hub. Hopefully an Post will call me and walk me through it because according to their site - it's a simple process so I must be doing something wrong. I don't need to upgrade my shopify plan or anything I wonder? 

 

Anyway - looking forward to using it when it's working - it'll be very useful.

Hmm, that is weird if it's not showing up after that. Just to make sure you've followed every step in the process which An Post have in their documentation. There is no documentation on the Shopify end for this. From what I see, I don't think your Shopify plan shoul dbe an issue for it. 

 

If you wanted to speak to someone on our end about this, don't hesitate to log in here to speak to one of our advisors in real time
