Purpose: Learn how to connect your own Yodel carrier contract with your Sendcloud account in three easy steps.
You must have a contract with Yodel in order to ship with Yodel through Sendcloud. To acquire a Yodel contract, contact Yodel.
Step 1: Activate your Sendcloud subscription
Sendcloud offers three subscriptions with which you are able to use your own transport contract: Lite, Growth and the Premium plan.
For more information regarding which plan is best for you and the needs of your business, you can always contact us via the support section of your Sendcloud account or click here.
Step 2: Connect your Yodel contract
- In your Sendcloud account, go to Settings > Carriers & Pricing
- Click on the My contracts tab:
- Click Add your own contract
- Find Yodel in the list of carriers and click Add contract
Step 3: Enter your Yodel account details
Next you fill in your Yodel credentials. If you haven't received those yet, you can request them via your Yodel account manager.
There are two sets of credentials. The first set is to activate regular shipping and the second set is to activate your collections and return methods:
Credentials for regular shipping (domestic & international)
- Account Number
Credentials for Collect+ Returns
Username Collect + Returns (optional)
Password Collect + Returns (optional)
Account Number Collect + Returns (optional)
Done! Once you've followed the steps above, your Yodel contract should now be successfully linked to your Sendcloud platform and you can begin shipping on your Yodel rates. When you create a label with a Yodel shipping method, the label price will now show as 0.00 EUR in your account.
