Cream is pleased to release the PostNL Shipments module. PostNL is the market leader for parcel shipments in the Netherlands. This module will add the PostNL shipment method to the checkout, so that customers can select PostNL as there preferred shipping carrier. The user will be able to choose between all available shipping methods offered by PostNL. In the backoffice of Magento the admin is able to print shipping labels for the PostNL shipments and follow the status of your shipments right from the Magento backoffice. 

There are no additional fees associated with the PostNL account, other than the cost of postage. Postage prices vary, dependent on an agreed upon rate when negotiating your contract with PostNL. Contact PostNL to get a quote by using the following link: 

By using this module customers will be able to select the PostNL shipment on the checkout page. The following shipment methods are supported:

  • Normal delivery
  • Evening delivery
  • Morning delivery
  • Monday delivery (Sunday sorting)
  • PostNL Pick up points (Pakjegemak)

Release Notes

  • Compatible with Open Source (CE) : 2.1
  • Stability: Stable Build
  • Description:

    Clean up various dependencies and fix several issues discovered using phpstan (PHP Static Analyzer).
    Undo confusing default for hiding payment methods.
    In addition to the fix in 1.3.3, we now also remove the delivery location from the database when it is no longer used.
    Switching between steps in checkout - such as going back and selecting another shipping method, will no longer cause delivery location data to persists between shipping methods.
    An option was added to only show COD (Cash on Delivery) payment method when the COD shipping method is selected. When another shipping method is selected the COD payment method will be hidden.
    When creating labels for shipments that use Extra Cover (verhoogde aansprakelijkheid), the insurance amount (grand total) is properly reported.
    When creating labels for Cash on Delivery shipments (rembours), the IBAN number and package value (grand total) are properly reported.
    Various changes were made in how delivery locations are represented to both the end-user as well as administrators. Instead of using a custom block, a custom address renderer is used that is used in the appropriate locations.
