Extension Settings


  • Auto-Complete - Enable this to auto-complete orders that contain only Infoplus-managed products when all parcels have shipped.
  • Infoplus API Key - This setting will automatically be filled in when you connect to Infoplus. It's available only if you need to refresh at the direction of Infoplus. It's available only if you need to refresh it at the direction of Infoplus. 
  • Debug Mode - Enable this to log error messages to the plugin log, located under WooCommerce > System Status > Logs. For best performance, please only enable this if you are having issues with the plugin.

Note: In order to sync items with Infoplus, you must ensure that your WooCommerce SKU matches the SKU you've set for your item within Infoplus. When creating a new item in Infoplus, note the SKU for the item.


Ensure that this SKU is used within WooCommerce under the "Inventory" tab, and that "Infoplus Manage?" is enabled for a product to enable syncing.



You can also enable "Infoplus Managed?" for multiple products using the product bulk actions.


Order Management


When an order is paid for (typically processing or completed status), it will automatically be sent to Infoplus without any further action needed. This also supports custom "is paid" statuses created with WooCommerce Order Status Manager for automatic order submission.


The products that are Infoplus-managed will have an Infoplus order created, and will be shown on the orders page in a new "Infoplus Orders" box.



When Infoplus has updates available for the order, they will be pushed to your WooCommerce store automatically, and this Infoplus Orders box will automatically update with any sub-orders or parcel information. Admins will also be able to see parcel data or view tracking information with one click. 


If you opt to auto-complete orders within your Infoplus settings, the order will be marked completed if:

  • All products in the order are managed by Infoplus, and
  • All parcels have been marked "shipped".
