3. Plugin configuration

3.1 Setting up the demo mode

If you want to try our plugin, and see how it works, you can work in demo mode. It gives you the possibility to configure products just to figure out how easy it is!

Note

Note: In demo mode you can test product configuration, set up markups and create orders. Only limitation is that you can not pass the order to production center! (It’s a demo ;))

To do that, you will need to go to K2P API – and set a “Demo mode” checkbox activated. Now you can go and create products. 

3.2 Setting up production mode

How to get into production mode? 

If you tested the plugin and want to start selling, you’ll need to do few more steps to obtain access to full plugin functionality: 

1)  Obtain you User ID

This is a necessary step in setting up your account, as it helps us to connect you with our printing partner SaxoPrint. You can get it by registering on the website of the local SaxoPrint from your country

 
 

2)    Send us a form with your customer ID you’ve received after registering to SaxoPrint. You can fill in the form right here. This is an extended questionnaire that will help us to gather more information about your company and review them in terms of your creditworthiness. 

 

3)    We verify your company.

4)     If verification goes fine, we will send you API credentials (API key and API secret) which will be necessary for proper plugin configuration. 

If you passed the verification process and received API credentials, you can go forward with plugin configuration. To enter production mode you will need to go to K2P API. Here you need to uncheck “Demo mode” and select proper system instance ( A country you want to sell in, which you defined in registration form). 

When the proper instance is chosen, then you will need do paste “API key” and “ API secret” which you received with verification process confirmation. Just click “Save changes” – your plugin is configured.

If you passed the verification process and received API credentials, you can go forward with plugin configuration. To enter production mode you will need to go to K2P API. Here you need to uncheck “Demo mode” and select proper system instance ( A country you want to sell in, which you defined in registration form). 

 

When the proper instance is chosen, then you will need do paste “API key” and “ API secret” which you received with verification process confirmation. Just click “Save changes” – your plugin is configured.

Note

API credentials are individual for every instance. If you want to sell in different countries, you will need to request new credentials and set up a new shop

4. Product configuration

If you configured plugin properly, you can go forward and create your first product. 

Go to Products -> Add new 

 

In product configuration wizard fill in all necessary information like product name, description, featured image etc. All WooCommerce features work as standard and can be used! 

In product data you’ll need to choose proper product type : select K2P product from the list. 

Here you will find additional product tab “ K2P Product”, in which you will setup the product. 

 

You will need to choose a proper product from “Select API instance”. This list is taken from SaxoPrint products from instance chosen in plugin configuration. Just select the proper one and set up a markup. 

5. How markup works?

You can set your own markup in every product. Markup will be added to your basic prices, including your discount. At the start you will get 12% from the standard prices, which means you can share your discount with the customers!

 

Example: 

Base product price: 100 EUR

Your discount: 12 % 

Your base price: 88 EUR

 a)    Your markup: 30%

Price for the customer: (100 EUR * (100%-12%) * 30%)  = 114,4 EUR

Your profit: 114,4 EUR – 88 EUR = 26,4 EUR

 b)    Your markup: -6%

Price for the customer: =  94 EUR

Your profit: 94 EUR – 88 EUR = 6 EUR
