DHL Express

Looking for the easiest & efficient way to integrate DHL Express with WooCommerce shopping cart? Tired of copying and pasting order details just to create a label? Here is the solution!

WooForce WooCommerce DHL Shipping Plugin with Print Label is a WordPress / WooCommerce extension that helps you to automate DHL Express shipping by displaying shipping rates on cart and checkout pages, print label from within WooCommerce, pack items automatically into boxes, and enable shipment tracking.
This plugin is Verified by DHL International (UK) Ltd. This plugin will work in all countries where DHL Express service is available.

DHL Paket

WooCommerce DHL Paket Shipping (Versand) Plugin allows you to pay postage and print label from an order view page in the WordPress Admin. If you also need the shipping rates to be shown on the checkout page, you may need to set the weight and zone-based rates manually. You may also use WooCommerce Shipping Pro for this purpose.
This plugin has been Approved by DHL Paket Quality Control and allocated an official App Id for integration.
The DHL business customer shipping API permits the management of shipments and the online purchase of postage and is typically aimed at senders with a volume of more than 200 shipments per year. For DHL business customers who do not have a DHL business customer account (EXP), and who have a shipment volume less than 200 shipments per year, shipping documents are created via the private customer shipping API.
The business customer shipping API takes care of:

  • The preparation of shipping documents for national and international shipping.
  • Creation of export documents.
  • Booking or cancellation of a pick-up request for a shipment from any point of origin and delivery to any destination location.
  • Retrieval of labels.

All operations apart from those required for booking and cancelling pick-ups are available for the following shipping types: Day Definite (DD) and Time Definite (TD).

    The comments below are incorrect. Version 3.0.2 and 3.0.3 of the plugin were sending the wrong codes to DHL. However, after I contacted DHL and found the correct code, two updates were done and now the problem is fixed and the software is working correctly.

    This is not 4 star because I had to contact DHL several time myself for guidance before this was fixed.

    DO not use any other DHL plugin except for this one! Trust me.

    I use DHL Thailand for shipping and it was an absolute nightmare to get their API working using some other plugins (1stdeveloper) was one I tried, and it would only return shipping options for documents, we ship clothes. I spent a good week trying to get it to play nice with DHL API to no avail!

    WooForce’s plugin worked right out of the box for me, returned viable shipping methods and no problems were encountered at any point. SO massive thanks to these guys because it was going to be a huge pain to change shipping companies for the e-commerce part of our site to work. Thanks!!!!

    Also, customer service help is top notch, they were understanding and spent some time helping me test that this plugin would work before I even bought it, using my account details.

    I will be using WooForce for all my shipping plugins from now on. Thanks for writing awesome plugins guys!
