Booking a GLS France shipment to be collected from a GLS ParcelShop with Shiptheory is easy. Shiptheory will require the Parcel Shop ID of the GLS ParcelShop from which the shipment will be collected by the recipient. You have two options in how you can supply this ID to Shiptheory, both are described below.

Use an Address Field

You can enter the collection ParcelShop ID into one of the address fields of the recipient address. Shiptheory will then pick up and use the ID from this address field to book the shipment.

By default, Shiptheory is set to look in Address Line 2, but you can change this to any other part of the recipient's address from your Shiptheory GLS France advanced settings.

From your GLS France carrier settings, click the grey Advanced Settings icon in the bottom left corner of the page. Under the Shop Delivery Parcel Shop ID Field option, select the address line in which you would like Shiptheory to look.

Use Delivery Instructions

You can enter the collection Parcel Shop ID into the shipment's delivery instructions. Shiptheory will then detect and use the ID from this field to book the shipment.

Simply add the Parcel Shop ID into your delivery instructions field in the following pattern (where XXXXXXXX is the ID):

parcelshop_id: XXXXXXXX
