If you ship your products internationally, outside European Union, with DPD, customs data needs to be attached to the shipment documentation.
Starting January 1st 2021, due to BREXIT, all shipments going outside UK will require customs information.
If available, this data is sent to DPD UK automatically by DPD Integration app.
The following data needs to be configured in the DPD Integration app and in Shopify.
This needs to be saved in the DPD Integration app, in the Options section:
This is only needed if you export your products.
If you need an EORI number, this is a good starting point.
You can learn more about the EORI number here.
All products shipped across customs boundaries need to have the HS code and Country of Origin filled in Shopify.
This can be edited in Shopify admin, in the product's details page.
It can also be edited in the product bulk editor from Shopify.
DPD requires 8 digit HS codes. If your product has only a 6 digit code configured, the app will extend it to 8 digits automatically.
You can add country of origin and Harmonized System (HS) codes to your products from your Shopify admin.
Learn more about HS codes from the World Customs Organization.

The customer's PID, VAT or EORI can also be saved in the order's Additional Details. In order to have these values read from the Additional details, you can customize your theme's code and add the fields to the cart page,
as described here. The theme customization is not part of the free support offered by WebShopAssist.
The names of the Additional details entries recognized by the app are: "customer PID", "customer VAT" and "customer EORI".
If both the tag and additional detail entry are present in an order, the tag has priority and will be used for the shipment.
