Overview

Onfleet allows you to provide delightful customer experiences, increase on-time deliveries and scale operations efficiently with the world’s most advanced fleet management platform. This article details how our integration with Onfleet works and provides help for getting setup. 

Our Onfleet integration has been built to work seamlessly with our local delivery functionality. It's perfect for both scheduled and on-demand orders. 


How it works

By default when you mark a delivery order as "Ready for dispatch" within Store Pickup + Delivery we will automatically create two connected tasks within Onfleet. The first will be a pickup task that contains your bricks and mortar stores address. The second will be a delivery task that contains your customers home address. 

Both tasks will contain your Shopify order number and the items ordered.

If your customer has left a comment in your themes "note" field we will also include that within both tasks. 

Should you not require the creation of the pickup task you can disable it via the Onfleet integration settings page.


Tracking information

Once your order has been sent through to Onfleet we will automatically create a fulfilment within Shopify and attach the Onfleet tracking number and url. 


How to find your Onfleet API Key

  1. Goto https://onfleet.com/login and login to your Onfleet account
  2. Click Settings
  3. Then click API & Webhooks
  4. If you have previously created an API key you will see it listed. Select it and click Edit. You will then see your API key in the field labelled Key.
  5. If you do not see an API key listed click the plus button to create one.

Important notes and restrictions
