DPD Integration for Shopify
We are offering Shopify integration with DPD, one of the top courier companies in Europe.
Our integration app is able to automate the process of generating tracking numbers, keeping the customers up to date with the status of the delivery and close the fulfillment on successful delivery.
We integrate Shopify stores with DPD Romania, DPD UK and DPD Local UK.
The integration module provides functionality to set the fulfillment service provider for products, in bulk, right from the Products admin page.
This may be useful if you want to mark items which should be delivered by DPD.
Important note: Shipments can be created for products which use DPD fulfillment service or with Manual fulfillment, the difference is that manually fulfilled products will be marked as Fulfilled by Shopify as soon as the shipment is created, while the fulfillments for products using DPD service will by marked as fulfilled (shipped) by this integration, only after DPD picks up the package for delivery.
In order to set DPD fulfillment service, go to Products page in your shop admin, select the products, then in the Actions dropbox select Fulfillment with DPD.
The pricing is based on how many AWBs are created in a month.
