The bol.com Retailer API is ready to offer our partners the ability to use delivery pickup points via Albert Heijn or PostNL in the Netherlands, and Albert Heijn branches in Belgium. We will automatically offer this option to customers in their buy block as a free option if their product is eligible for pickup points. This will become automatically available in the API on May 25, 2021. For more information, see this topic .
What do you need to do?
As a partner with Shipping via bol.com you do not need to do anything extra to enable this option, and the process works much the same as other shipment types. If a customer has selected a pickup point during the order, in the Get single order call, the
pickupPointfield will be
true, and the
shipmentDetails.pickupPointNamefield will have the name of the collection location. Then when you fetch shipment data , the same fields will appear from the order that were added to the GET single order call.
We have defined a set of templates for shipping labels for each specific pickup point type. When you generate a shipping label with pickup points, it will automatically display the correct destination and customer details.
