7/ Use the module
If you’ve already completed all the previous steps, you can now start using the module!
From now on, when a new order has been paid for or when the payment has been accepted by you, the orders will automatically be imported into your Packlink PRO account, so Packlink PRO will always be updating with the orders that are ready for shipping in WooCommerce. To send these orders, access Packlink PRO where you will see these orders in the list of shipments. All you have to do is review the information of your orders and finalise them with the payment.
Please remember that when a buyer has made multiple orders from your WooCommerce shop, only one shipment will be imported into Packlink PRO. Only you will be able to decide how the packages should be sent, as one shipment or in several. As the image below shows, Packlink PRO allows you to add several packages for the same shipment:
