Hi,

I want to sent the packing list to a certain email address. How can I do this? The packing list should go to the warehouse.

Thanks!

Hi,

Well, I'm not sure what you want precisely.
There are several things here:
- strictly speaking, a packing list means a list of products with their weight, a total of the weight of the products for one package. An order can have several packages. For example, if you use the warehouse system in HikaShop, the products are grouped by warehouse, so this supposes that you can have several groups for the same order. It can also happen with USPS, UPS, Fedex, etc when you use these shipping plugins as HikaShop split the products in several packages in order to sum the shipping fee for each package when it's not possible to send all the products in one package (too big, too heavy, etc).
So potentially, this can mean sending several emails for an order, with different emails for different recipients. Of course, there is no such system by default in HikaShop, so that would mean you would have to code that in your own plugin.
- also, even if you have only one package for one order, a packing list normally has a specific format. Do you need a specific format ? Because in that case, that would also require coding.
- if you don't need several emails for an order, nor a specific format, do you need to send the email to a different warehouse based on some criteria ? If no, then it's easily easy, you can just enter the email address of the warehouse in the "order status notification" email in the menu System>Emails and the warehouse will receive a copy of the email sent to the customer after the order is paid, which includes the products list and the recipient address. If yes, then it would require some customization of the order status notification to switch the email address.
And if you don't want the warehouse to receive a copy order status notification but another email, then it will also require some development to send your own email notification.
