Product Walkthrough Video
WooCommerce DHL Paket Shipping (Versand) Plugin allows you to pay postage and print label using DHL Paket, 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.

The business customer shipping API takes care of:
All operations apart from those required for booking and canceling pick-ups are available for the following shipping types: Day Definite (DD) and Time Definite (TD).
Looking for standard domestic and international parcel pick-up, delivery and return solutions for business customers as well as e-commerce logistics and facilitation services? Here is the solution! DHL eCommerce offers all this and more!
How does it work?
Step 1: Install the Plugin, input your DHL Account details, and enable DHL Express/Paket Shipping Method for WooCommerce.
Step 2: Pay Postage, Print Label, and Generate Tracking info from within WooCommerce order page.
Live Shipping Rates
Based on the product weight, box dimensions, shipping destination etc., this plugin fetches DHL postage rates for both domestic and international shipping services. You can choose to return list rates or account/negotiated rates and show breakdown of each service with estimated delivery time. The plugin consists of DHL Express, DHL Paket, and DHL eCommerce shipping service. You can choose the desired shipping service based on your region to access the live shipping rates.
Print Shipping Label
Print shipping labels from within WooCommerce. After logging in to the WordPress admin area, you can create a shipment by clicking on the ‘create shipment’ button on the right-hand side of the order details page. Shipment details would automatically be sent to the DHL Express online account, and then the shipping label would be generated, which you can print. Postage is automatically paid on these labels using your DHL account. There is an option to change the shipping service before generating a label. This plugin integrates with DHL Express APIs to print domestic or international shipping labels with a tracking barcode. Although you can create shipments in bulk in the WooCommerce Orders Page, you can use the bulk label printing add-on to create multiple shipments at once as well as print them in a single PDF file.
Print Return Labels
Just like printing Shipping labels, you can print Return Shipping labels as well. If you have multiple items in a single order, you can choose the desired items to process return shipment. In addition to this, you can even configure custom shipping service for return shipments.
Print Archive Air Waybill
A DHL Archive Air Waybill helps in services like ensuring package safety, customs clearance and works as a proof of consignment to track the shipment. You can choose to print either one or two archive documents. Once you have enabled the Archive Air Waybill setting, an Air Waybill will be attached with Shipping label as well as Return Shipping label.
Print Commercial Invoice
If you shipping internationally, your products have to face Customs clearance. In such cases, you can generate a Commercial Invoice for your package(s). You can go paperless with DHL Paperless Trade (PLT) feature. With this feature, you do not have to print physical copies of commercial invoices, rather the invoice information is sent to Customs via DHL. If you are sending domestic shipments to restricted areas like Military base, Airforce base, etc, you would need a commercial invoice.
DHL Shipment Tracking
The tracking number returned from DHL while generating the label would be added to order notes and will be sent as part of the order completion email. A visual representation of tracking status can be seen in Order edit page by Admin and in Order’s section of customer’s My-Account page. The tracking information shows the current status of the shipment in transit.
Parcel Packaging Options
Based on the weights and dimensions of the products in the cart, the rate will be calculated and applied to the final price of the order. Once the order is placed, the items will then be automatically packed into the configured boxes. You can choose from the following Packing options:
- Individual Item Packing
- Pack Into Custom Boxes with Weights and Dimensions
- Weight-Based (You can pack heavier items first, lighter items first, or pack purely divided by weight)
Configure handling fees for each shipping service, in terms of amount or percentage value. A positive value results in markup, whereas negative value results in a discount.
Parcel Pickup Request
The plugin allows you to place a parcel pickup request to DHL while creating shipments. You can specify the desired pickup day, time, and contact details. After successfully placing the pickup request, the store owner will get a unique booking number.

This is one of the most complete and refined plugin the we have in our online store. I found this solution by way of the review on google and now I’m leaving my own that hopefully also help others.If you ever name “Lorenzo Marak” popup in your inbox, know that you problem is solved! the man has too much class and manage the plugin to the smallest of details which guarantee a short time frame for your store be up and running an case of any issue after you purchase the plugin.But things doesn’t end there; I ask DHL regarding the API access and they gave me the green light with this plugin, which made me more confident about my purchase and support.Overall great experience and thank you so much once again Mr. Lorenzo.Ruben.
The support was fantastic, the localization is a bit confusing. I would wish there was an option to use the plugin in english. 🙂 Can recommend.
This plugin helped me centralise everything on my webshop and eliminated the need to go to MyDHL page to ship items, which saves a lot of time. Add to that automatic price calculation and you got yourself a great plugin for your business 🙂
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What happens when the one year license expires?
After the plugin’s one year license expires the plugin will continue to work as normal but the download permission will be revoked so the updates for the plugin will stop. You can always renew the license at a 20% discount which will be provided on request.
Will the plugin work in my country?
DHL Express module will work if your country has the DHL Express service. You can contact DHL Express team and open an account and get the API credentials from them.
But the DHL Paket module works only in Germany, and the DHL Ecommerce works only in the USA.
Does the plugin get the account specific shipping rates from my DHL express agreement?
Yes. the plugin is capable of retrieving your account-specific rates.
Can I show live shipping rates in my shop?
Yes, the DHL Express has the option to show live shipping rates. But the DHL Paket and DHL Ecommerce does not have these options since their API does not provide the rate request to access the live shipping rates.
Is this compatible with a Multi-Vendor plugin?
Yes, the plugin works with a multi-vendor plugin. It is also compatible with WooCommerce Multi-Vendor Support for ELEX Shipping Plugins.
Will the tracking information be sent to the customer once the label is generated?
Yes. Once the labels are generated, you need to mark the order status as ‘Completed’. Also, make sure you have enabled order completion email in the WooCommerce setting.
Would like to clarify if this means $79 yearly to use this plugin? Are real-time rates the only feature available for free?
The $79 fee is a first-time purchase rate. After a year if you want to renew the license, we give 20% discount so license renewal cost will be $63.2. If you don’t wish to renew the license, the plugin updates and download permission will be revoked, but the premium plugin will still work fine. This means both label and rates feature will work unless your WooCommerce version requires the plugin update.

Yes, you can create Return shipment if you have enabled return shipment option in the plugin settings. Once you create a shipment, you get the option to create return shipment as well.

Can I bulk print labels?
Although this plugin allows you to create shipments in bulk in the WooCommerce Orders page, we recommend using our bulk label printing add-on, as it creates multiple shipments at once and prints all the shipping labels in a single PDF file.

The DHL web services do not provide shipment receipt. We have confirmed with the DHL team that you don’t require it if you’re creating shipment labels using the plugin.

Do DHL Paket and DHL Ecommerce have rate quote option?
