The first step to getting the SF Connector to work on your machine is, to navigate to your 'Courier Integration' page. Currently the app will support Royal Mail, Yodel, DPD and Other Courier. Once you are on one of these pages you will see an option to download SF Connector halfway down the page.
Once you know which version you need, simply click on the correct link, this will download the installer for the SF Connector.
Once the installer has downloaded then you can click on it to run.
This will then proceed to install the application. The installation will typically take around 10 seconds, depending on your internet connection, and once it is completed it will load automatically.
The SF Connector automatically recognises you as a StoreFeeder user and will load your courier information automatically. There are only a couple bits of information you will need to complete to use the Connector successfully. Once the application has loaded click on the 'Settings' menu option.
Now click on the 'Setup Option'.
This will load a new window which will have two sections of information on, the first is a 'General Label Printer' selection, this is used within the app to print out any errors you may have whilst dispatching, so just select your label printer from the list (this will be auto filled will all the installed printers on the machine you are using).
The next section is 'Courier Information', where you will see each applicable courier you have on your account set up as a tab. On each tab there is an option to enter the input and results folder locations for the couriers. If you click on the text box then a folder explorer will appear, so all you will need to do is navigate to the folders you have set for the specific courier.
Once you have filled out the relevant information then just click the 'Save' button in the right hand corner. The system will check the information and automatically start polling for orders to download.
Now all you need to do is dispatch as normal through StoreFeeder. When the order is despatched, SF Connector will pick it up add this to the list of pending orders and then process the order, and the label will print out directly from your label printer, the order is then marked as dispatched within the system and any tracking numbers will automatically be assigned to that order.
NOTE: You will need to ensure your Default Browser is the same browser as you access StoreFeeder with, otherwise you will see an error when accessing SF Connector.
