Activation of the application.
To activate the Sameday courier services in your store, log in to your admin panel, go to the section with "Applications" > "All Applications," and install BoxNow.
1) After installing the application, you will be redirected to a page where you need to enter your contract details with BoxNow. Once you sign a contract with BoxNow, you will receive the identification data to activate the module in your store ("Client ID," "Client Secret," and "Partner ID"). These identification details must be valid to proceed to the settings page.
2) Also, don't forget to activate the application from the ON/OFF button in the top right corner of the screen.
3) Add the name of the courier service and change the logo if necessary.
4) Fill in the sender's information.
Here you have the following fields:
- Sender's Name
- Sender's Phone Number
- Sender's Email
5) Service type to a locker
At this step, you need to configure the method for calculating the delivery price to the locker.
You have three options to choose from.
Fixed price without BoxNow calculator - you can set a fixed amount for shipping, estimated by cart total to address. You can also set different pricing ranges and values for them (by using the "Add new row" button). Also, keep in mind that if you leave the "Value" field empty, then the shipping will be free.
Fixed value by weight without BoxNow calculator - choosing this type of service, you must manually fill in the shipping value according to the order's weight. You can also set different pricing ranges and values for them (by using the "Add new row" button). Also, keep in mind that if you leave the "Value" field empty, then the shipping will be free.

6) Shipping regions
In the next section, you can set the regions for which this delivery method applies or choose to apply it globally by activating the "Make it Global" button.
If you turn off the button, from the drop-down menu you should select specific shipping regions that you have created in advance (in our help articles you can find out what geo zones and geo polygons are for and how to apply them correctly).
This delivery method will be valid and visible to customers only for the specific region(s) you have chosen to apply it to. For customers who have ordered from other regions, this delivery method will not be visible on the checkout page.
7) Payment provider
In this section, you can choose whether this shipping method is applied globally and is applied to all payment methods you have activated in your store.
Use the (ON/OFF button) to choose if you want this delivery method to be applied only to certain payment methods (you can select those from the drop-down menu).
8) Settings for receiving the shipment.
At this step, you can set the values for the "Default Weight per Product." If you haven't previously set a weight value for a specific product, the system will automatically assign the value specified in this field.
9) Who pays the shipping cost
For this type of courier service, the option is set to "Sender."
10) Additional options
If any of the options in this section are enabled, it will be visible when generating the shipping label.
From this step, you can enable the use of cash on delivery.
As a final step, don't forget to click the "Save" button in the bottom right corner. Once you do that, the BoxNow integration is ready for use in your online store. For all the benefits of using couriers delivering to parcel machines, read this article.
