Temando Shipping Fulfillment

Temando is a shipping and order fulfillment system that is integrated with your My Shop > Orders section. Once a Temando account is created you are then able to obtain shipping quotes for all customer orders, and select freight options based on the fastest or cheapest method of delivery.

Temando allows you to optimise package types and sizes before obtaining live on-screen quotes from your preferred carrier/s. From the quotes provided you can then decide which freight option is most appropriate for each shipment; this process alone can save you significant freight costs. Once you have chosen your carrier/s for each shipment, Temando will book your freight pickups and notify your customers that their order is on its way.

You can access Temando at any time or choose to employ your own freight booking system and not use Temando at all - the choice is always yours.

The Temando fulfillment pages are spread across 4 navigation tabs located at the left of the screen, Details, Packages, Quotes, Booking. The default tab that first appears once you enter from the Orders page depends on whether or not Temando has enough shipping and packaging information collated from the data you entered into each My Shop product’s Shipping & Handling section.

If your shop product Shipping & Handling data is blank for an ordered product, Temando will use the default packaging value set in Preferences > Fulfillment Services > Preferences.

In short, the fulfillment process is as follows: 

  1. Prepare for shipping quotes by confirming shipping info (weight, dimensions and packaging).
  2. Obtain shipping quotes and select a carrier to collect the order.
  3. Book the selected carrier and notify customer of shipment.

Preparing for shipping quotes

The Temando shipping aggregator is accessed via the Orders screen after you click on a customer order.

  1. Go to Dashboard > Orders
  2. Select an order you wish to obtain freight quotes for and/or to book a freight pick. To do this, select an order’s corresponding Cog button and choose Fulfillment from the menu list. The order will now open within the Temando Fulfillment tab.

The following sections describe the purpose of each of the 4 navigation tabs within Temando Fulfillment.


If necessary, click the Edit icon within the Destination window to update a shipping address before continuing with the fulfillment process. Click the Map icon to view the destination address in Google Maps™.

If viewing an order’s fulfillment for the first time, click the Packing - Next » button, otherwise select any one of the 3 fulfillment navigation tabs to jump directly to the different stages of fulfillment.

  • The system will not allow you to view Quotes or Booking if you are yet to assign shipping cartons to an order (via the Packages navigation tab).


Typically the default screen for new orders, this screen determines the final shipment packaging of each line item, i.e. bulkier items into their own shipping carton, whereas smaller items may ship inside a pre-determined size of satchel or carton. 

If you have taken time to enter Shipping & Handling data into every product within your shop and you have nominated a default package type for each product, the system will automatically place line items into relevant shipping (package) types. From there you can edit packaging (cartons, boxes, satchels, etc.) to suit the order.
