POINTS TO KEEP IN MIND WHILE USING HERMES SHIPPING INTEGRATION MODULE
Please keep the following points in mind to prevent getting an error message while placing a delivery with Hermes Shipping Integration Carrier:
1.) Valid Credentials
Please use the correct Hermes Courier credentials to configure the module to successfully generate the shipment in the Odoo backend and on the website.
2.) Correct destination and sender address
The addresses entered in the order for both user/receiver and warehouse/sender should be valid entries to process the shipping successfully. The addresses and range from the source to the destination would depend upon the type of service availed from Hermes Shipping by the Odoo admin.
3.) A non-zero weight of the package
The product added to Hermes Post Shipping should not have zero as the listed weight in the Odoo otherwise the shipment generation request returns an error from Hermes Shipping. To avoid this, the admin can also set a default weight to be automatically sent to the Hermes Shipping in case of the product in case the listed weight is zero.
4.) You need to put the product in a pack to generate a shipping label.
