In this blog, we will tell you all about linking your sales channels to our platform, the many advantages and how to make the link. You can do this yourself very easily! And we’ll be happy to help if you can’t work it out. Let’s get into it.
More possibilities with MyParcel.
With MyParcel you process all your orders in no time. Whether you want to send a parcel, letterbox parcel, mail or pallet. For each of these options you create a shipping label in the same, easy way. You can easily do this in your webshop software or MyParcel account. With MyParcel you can also easily configure delivery and shipping options, offering your customers the opportunity to decide for themselves where and when a parcel is delivered, from evening delivery to picking it up at a PostNL location. This will elevate your webshop’s service to a higher level. Among the shipping options you can choose are ‘Signature on delivery’, ‘Insured shipping’ and ‘Age check 18+’. Shipping options offer extra security when sending your parcels. In short, plenty of options!
These are the advantages of our shipping service.
You can create shipping labels for domestic and international shipments even faster and easier with our shipping service. With 3,500 PostNL locations, there is always one near you where you can bring your parcels. And with the automatic Trace & Trace information, your customers are always aware of the status of their order. There are even more advantages!
- Linking and using the link is free.

Linking with your webshop.
Our shipping service can also be integrated into your webshop with our free links. Creating the link is done in a few minutes and requires little technical knowledge. We have no fewer than 25+ links, so there is a good chance that your webshop software is among them. If your software cannot be linked, we have the Google Chrome plug-in. We will tell you more about this later in this blog.
This is how you create the link.
Linking your webshop to our platform is incredibly easy. We have created a detailed guide on how to do this for each link. You can find an overview of all our links with the manual here. The most common way of linking is by means of an API key. An API key is a unique code that identifies you as a MyParcel user. Entering this code in your webshop lays the foundation for the link, making it possible to view the shipments in your MyParcel account. This is how you generate the API key:
- Log in to your MyParcel account.
- Go to ‘Account settings’ and click on ‘General’.
- Click on ‘Generate API key’ and copy the API key.
Integrate multiple sales platforms in your back office.
In addition to linking your webshop, it’s also possible to create an external link with your Bol.com or Amazon account. The link makes processing your orders faster and easier. Manually copying and pasting addresses is no longer necessary. We arrange everything for you automatically. All you have to do is import your external orders, and then you can print the shipping labels directly. It’s that easy.
Selling on Amazon
Amazon is the largest e-commerce player in the world, but still new to the Dutch market. Since 2020, the webshop has offered millions of products in more than twenty categories. At Amazon, the selling process is transparent. You pay € 0.99 per sold product if you do not offer more than forty articles in your product range. If your assortment contains more products, you pay a monthly fee of €39.00. This means that you are not charged per product sold in this case.
Selling through Bol.com.
With 12.5 million active users in the Netherlands and Belgium, Bol.com is a real e-commerce giant. More than 50% of their orders are placed through more than 20,000 sales partners. Offering your product range through Bol.com is free. You do pay a commission when you sell something. This differs per product category.
Is your link not included? No problem.
If no link is available for your software, you can use the Google Chrome extension. You can quickly and easily create shipments in your browser from any web page using our Google Chrome extension.
