  6. After you've filled out the fields, click the blue "Add Credential" button

That's it! Your DHL account is now integrated, but is not quite ready to quote DHL rates to your international buyers. The next step is to add the DHL Express Worldwide shipping method!

 

Adding the DHL Express Worldwide Shipping Method

Even if your DHL account is integrated, you won't be able to offer DHL shipping to your buyers until you add the method. To do so,

  1. Log into your account on manage.revolutionparts.com
  2. Click the account settings gear on the top-right corner of the page
    Screen_Shot_2018-08-01_at_3.46.55_PM.png
  3. In the left-side menu, find and click on the desired store to expand it, then click "Shipping," then, "Methods"

    PLEASE NOTE that because DHL is an international carrier, you can only add DHL Express Worldwide to international shipping zones.

  4. If you already have an international zone configured, skip to Step 5
    • If not, click the "New Zone" button on the top-right corner of the page. You'll need to have a zone compatible with DHL shipping (either Canada, Europe, or Rest of the World)

    • If you don't already have a region configured for your desired zone, add it by clicking the "New Region" button at the bottom-left of the zone.
