How do I integrate my Store with DHL for Real-Time Shipping Calculation?


Your Shift4Shop store can be integrated with the main shipping carriers in order to provide your customers with real-time shipping calculations for their orders.

This guide will show you how to set up your account registrations with DHL and then integrate your credentials to your Shift4Shop store.

This process will involve first registering an account with DHL and then filling out a request form on DHL's service for third party API permissions. More information on this can be found below.

Register with DHL

To register your DHL account, please follow these steps:

  1. Click here to register and open an account with DHL

The necessary API permissions used for DHL/Shift4Shop integration are provided through a third party XML service called AIVEA eShip Web Service. This process will involve filling out a contact form on DHL's services which will request specialized assistance on setting up the vendor support for your account.

  2. Submit your form.

Once the form has been received, you will receive information regarding your API profile. (ID, Password, etc). This information will then be entered into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager.

This information may take up to 5 days to receive from DHL. Please contact DHL's support if it takes longer.

Once you receive this information, reply back to DHL to switch your account to production.
