Is this possible to have DHL's api implemented into Shopify?

We are assuming you would need a custom UI inside Shopify as well.

Not sure why this feature is not offered as DHL has the best rates for international shipping.

Let us know if anyone is up to develop this and what cost would be.

Thanks in Advaced!

Hi Frank,

We have new APIs launching soon for fulfillment and carrier services that will enable these sorts of integrations to be built. Keep an eye on the tech blog for updates.

Cheers

:) Yes, this will be a great add-on. As far as I know DHL has the best rates for international shipping. We pay way to much to use UPS and FedEx for shipping

I can help you build a DHL shipping rate module. The only thing stopping me is access to a live DHL account so I can apply and get access to their API documentation. Would you be able to help me with that?

Hello Shopify,

I would also like an update on this.

I need to use DHL for real time shipping in the next month.

Thanks.

We can't wait for this to be integrated. Our DHL rates are excellent and we would love to pass that savings on to our customers. 

 

Thanks!

It is possible to do it but I would need to have access to the DHL API documentation which is only open to DHL customers. Would someone be kind enough to obtain the API using their account?

See here http://www.dhl.com/en/express/resource_center/integrated_shipping_solutions.html for information on how to get access to the API called DHL XML Services Toolkit.

Click on Start developing with DHL XML services and select your country. It will ask you to fill out a form.

All conversations happening here pertain to DHL Express i suppose? The reason i am asking this is because DHL Express and DHL Ecommerce are separate entities operating worldwide. In Germany, there is a separate API for German customers which is known as DHL Paket. If you are looking at an integration of DHL Express and DHL Paket for your Shopify store, you can try the Multi Carrier Shipping label app which will show shipping quotes and help you fulfil orders.
