Shipping zones configuration for DPD Local

If you are shipping abroad using DPD Local, please remember about special configuration of your WooCommerce shipping zones. If you are shipping to Europe and UK and using a shipping zone for whole Europe, please note that you should add separate zones for UK and Europe:

UK shipping zone should be listed above Europe.

How to enable integration?

When creating shipping methods you can also enable integration with DPD.

Integration Select DPD UK to enable integration for this shipping method.

Service Choose the DPD UK service which will be used for this shipping method.

Please mind that not all of the DPD UK services you can choose from the Service dropdown list provide the 100% coverage of the UK area. If you get the 'There are no shipping methods available...' notice in the cart or checkout for specific postcodes you may have to configure the additional shipping methods using the different services to make the entire UK teritory be fully covered.

Liability Check to add extended liability. The amount will be automatically filled with the order total.

References Set additional shipping notes on the label. You can apply shortcodes:

  • [order_number]
  • [shop_name]
  • [shop_url]

Reference fields are maximum of 25 characters. If you add shortcodes, remember that you can't create shipment if the field exceed maximum of characters.

Parcel description A small human readable description of the product.

If you are using the DPD Europe by Road service the Parcel Description field must be filled. Without it, the DPD UK API will return "parcelDescription: Missing mandatory field" error and won't let to create the shipment.
