Frequently asked questions

Currently, the app works with DPD UK, DPD Local UK, DPD Romania, DPD Slovenia and DPD Croatia. We are working to connect more countries, so please get in touch with us to learn more.
You can search the orders you want to fulfill, eather in the app's Manage Shipments page or the Shopify Orders page and send it to the app using 'Send to DPD Shipments' command under Actions menu. Then, select the orders and click the 'Fulfill selected orders' button.
Yes, you can for UK. This feature depends on the functions offered by the DPD API of each country, therefore is not available in all countries. You can access this in the Fulfillment details page. Go to the order details page and under the 'More actions' drop-down menu, click DPD Fulfillment to access the Fulfillment details page.
The app adds the tracking number to the order and you can see it in Shopify admin. It also can trigger Shopify's shipping notifications sent to your customers. If these notifications include the tracking number depends on how you have configure it. Our Help page includes a section on how to add tracking number to shipping notification.
The app checks the delivery status periodically and updates it in Shopify. You can see the latest status directly in the order details page in the 'ADDITIONAL DETAILS' section.
The app allows you to use advanced shipment rules apps like 'Intuitive Shipping' or 'Advanced Shipping Rules' in UK, and link the shipping rules you design in these apps with the DPD Services. Also, if any app is writing data to the Additional Details section of the order, our app can include it in the order list page for your convenience. See the 'Additional Details Column' section in the apps Help page.
We are happy to improve the app. Please contact us and we'll do our best to make it happen.

Benefits

Save the time spent filling shipment forms. Let the app do it for you!

Options

You can configure how the application works and make it suit your Shopify store management style.

The integration options are specific to each country because the API's capabilities and requirements are different:

Shipping method mapping to DPD services

In the above page, you can select a default DPD service for each shipping option you have defined for your store.

Each time a shipment is created in the DPD system, our app has to select a DPD service from the available services provided by DPD for the shipping address of the order.

As the list of available services depends on the order's shipping address, we take the next steps to pick the most appropriate service:

  1. We look into the shipping methods mapping to see if the shipping method selected in the order is mapped to a DPD service - if it is, and that service is available, then use it.
  2. If previous step was unsuccessful, check if the Preferred Service Type is available.
  3. If Preferred Service Type is not available, then use the first available service.

Also, the service can be changed in the DPD webpage after the shipment is created, before printing the label.

Setting fulfillment service

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.

Show the DPD order history in website

The app can show the DPD event history for an order, in your store website, for customers with accounts. This way you can provide more details to your customers, about their orders, directly in your website.

Given the diversity of store themes, setting this up cannot be done automatically, therefore it will require a little theme code editing. Don't worry, we'll provide the code snippets and will tell you which file needs to be modified. There is only one theme file which has to be edited.

You can provide the DPD order history in two ways:

1. Link to a new page

You can insert a link to open a new page which will display the event history.

The page will be displayed with your theme's layout.

2. Embed the order history into the order details page

You can display the list of events in the order details page.

DPD order history in website

The code snippets can be found in the app's Help page.


This feature is available only starting with the Standard plan.

If you need assistance setting up this feature, please fill free to contact us.

Additional Details Column

You can use data created by other apps and display it in the order list page, to help you with your delivery process.

additional details key in options

If the app saved its info in the order's additional details, as in the above image, you can display that info in the Manage shipments page, as a new column.

Take the title of the additional details data - in the example above 'Delivery-Date' and add it in the Additional Details Key field, in our app's options page. The app will show a new column with that info:

additional details column

The Additional Details Key has to be exactly the same as it appears in the orders additional details - case sensitive.

At the same time, a new filter field will be displayed to allow you to narrow the results. The filter is text-type; it will match orders that include the text you enter in the additional details field.

You can take advantage of the powerful Orders search in the Shopify admin to find orders you want to fulfill.

Go to the All orders page search for the orders you need, select them, then from the Actions dropdown send them to our app.

The selected orders will be loaded in the Shipment list where you can start the fulfillment process or print their labels.
