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.

What happens when the one year license expires?

After the plugin’s one year license expires, the plugin will continue to work as usual, but the download permission will be revoked. So, the updates for the plugin will stop.

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 DHL shipping rates in my shop?

Yes, the DHL Express and DHL Ecommerce have the option to show live shipping rates. But the DHL Paket does not have the option since its 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 multi-vendor plugins by associating 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?

Yes, the $79 fee is a first-time purchase rate. After a year, if you wish to get the plugin updates, you may repurchase the plugin. But the existing premium plugin will still work finely without any issues. This means both labels and rates feature will work unless your WooCommerce version requires the plugin update.

Can I create Return shipment with this plugin?

Do you support 6x4 PDF labels?

Yes, we do. There are a number of other formats which the plugin supports, including 8×4, ZPL, & EPL.

Does my store need to be in dollars by default for your plugin to work, or can I have it as my country's primary currency, which is South African Rands?

No. It is best to have the country’s currency as shop’s base currency since it makes fewer complications when it comes to currency conversions. The plugin will work fine with US Dollars too.

Can I bulk print labels?

Can I restrict the shipping services based on conditions?

Yes, it is possible to restrict the services based on your conditions using this plugin along with the ELEX hide shipping plugin.

Does the plugin provide the shipment receipt?

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.

Will DHL come and pick up the shipment once the labels are generated?

Yes, you can create a pickup request. Once you generate the labels, you need to enable the pickup option in the plugin settings, under the “Label and Tracking’ tab.
Make sure you enter the time format in 24hours (like 14:00).

Do DHL Paket and DHL Ecommerce have rate quote option?

Unfortunately, the DHL Paket and DHL Ecommerce API do not provide the rate quote option. You can only print the shipping labels and the manifest. To show rates in the front end, you’ll have to use some flat rate, table rate shipping option, or use DHL Express.

Does your plugin support DHL connect service?

    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!
