How to Set Up ELEX WooCommerce DHL India Add-On?
This article intends to provide a detailed step-by-step guide to set up ELEX WooCommerce DHL India Add-On for your WooCommerce store with ELEX WooCommerce DHL Express / eCommerce / Paket Shipping Plugin with Print Label plugin.
The ELEX WooCommerce DHL India Add-On lets you ship your products from your store, which is located in India to any shipping locations outside India. With this add-on, if you give the source address as an Indian address, ELEX WooCommerce DHL India Add-On will take care of the shipment. If you give any shipping address other than India, the WooCommerce DHL Express Plugin will proceed with the shipment accordingly.
For setting up ELEX WooCommerce DHL India Add-On, you need the following:
- ELEX WooCommerce DHL Express / eCommerce / Paket Shipping Plugin with Print Label plugin
- ELEX WooCommerce DHL India Add-On
Getting started with ELEX WooCommerce DHL India Add-on
The primary configuration depends on the WooCommerce DHL Express Plugin settings before going through the add-on settings. Hence you need to set up the WooCommerce DHL Express Plugin before proceeding with the configuration of this add-on.

Go to ELEX WooCommerce DHL India Add-On and click Settings.
The add-on consists of the following settings:

How to get DHL Credentials?
To get Site ID and Site Password, countries other than the United States (UK and the rest of the world), need to contact the DHL account manager. The account manager must request integration with ELEX via DHL pre-sales department. The pre-sale department will then provide the live credentials to you.
Shipper ID: Enter the unique shipper reference ID here. You can track the shipment using this ID.
Import Export Code: Enter Import Export Code (IEC), which is mandatory for importing goods into India as well as exporting goods outside of India.
How to get Import Export Code(IEC)?
Go to DGFT website. Then click on Services > IEC Profile Management > Apply for IEC.
Submit your Bank Certificate / Pre-printed Cancelled Cheque and Address Proof of the firm, and then fill out the application correctly. You will receive the ten-digit IEC code as soon as possible.
Using E-Commerce?: Choose ‘yes’ if you are using these DHL credentials for an e-commerce store. Choose ‘not’ if you are not using these for an e-commerce store.

IGST is a tax levied on all Inter-State supplies of goods and services, that are applicable to any supply of goods as well as services to import into India and export from India.
