Plugin Development Kit (PDK)

The MyParcel Plugin Development Kit (PDK) is a set of tools to quickly build a MyParcel plugin for your e-commerce platform. The backend is written in PHP and the frontend is written in JavaScript.


  • Easy to use API
  • Feature equality between all implementations
  • Automated building using a configuration file
  • Easily configurable
  • Extensible: If the default implementation does not fit your needs, you can modify it


The following terms are used throughout the documentation:

AppYour implementation of the PDK. This is your plugin, app, module or extension that uses the PDK.
PDK backendThe PDK backend is the part of the PDK that is written in PHP.
PDK frontendThe PDK frontend is the part of the PDK that is written in JavaScript.
AdminThe admin is the admin panel, dashboard or backend of your app.
CheckoutThe checkout is the checkout page of your app.

Getting started

The PDK is used in the following plugins:


Why use the PDK over an SDK?


We welcome contributions to the PDK. Please read our developer guide to get started.
