💡Account number must be a 14 digit value.
Include your Return Account number to create Return Labels and also Bank Data to create COD shipments (you only need to do that in case you're interested in using these features).
📌 Note: In order to ship orders to a Packstation with DHL Express, you need to set the address as follows:
Street Line 1: " Packstation " + number
Street Line 2: Postnummer
📌 DHL Parcel doesn't support Address 2, therefore civic number needs to be added in Address 1 field.
To enable Tracking ask your DHL Person to activate Tracking API credentials.
Besides the Account Number, you'll also see some further options, let's take a look at them!

Label Type gives you the possibility you to choose the correct label format for your printer.

Using this option you will be able to edit it and therefore deliver the order. Without this service, the package will not be delivered and it will be automatically returned to the sender.
