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 details page.
It can also be edited in the product bulk editor from Shopify. Also, it is worth noting that in the product page you can only add 6 digit HS codes, but in the Bulk editor you can add 8 digits.
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 or region of origin and Harmonized System (HS) codes to your products from your Shopify admin.
Learn more about HS codes from the World Customs Organization.
