- Set up DPD Local UK as a courier service in Starshipit.
Before you begin
You need your:
- Account Number
These are the credentials used to log in to the DPD Local UK portal.
Account number can be found in the 'My Account Details' page under the 'MyDPD Local' tab, after logging into the portal.
1. Enter your account details in Starshipit
NOTE: Click on the 'Test to ensure it works' button to see if your credentials are working correctly.
2. Set up parcel collection date/time
You can set up collection of packages to be a certain number of minutes from the time of printing of an order's label.
Or, you can set it to a regular daily time that you have booked with DPD Local UK. If you do this, the date can be set in the future for the next date to be used, or if it is today or was previously set and that date is now in the past, then today's date will always be used.
NOTE: You cannot set the collection date to be in the past when modifying though, and you also cannot set it to a date more than 7 days into the future.
You can also override this setting on any individual order and the new value will be saved as the new overall setting.
3. Set up advanced settings
We recommend setting up your shipper tax settings as this is required by DPD for many locations. To configure this, please see here:
Please note that DPD Local UK do not pass rates in to Starshipit, so these will not be shown in the New Order page.
You can however set up 'table rates' for DPD Local UK, where you would record the rates that the courier charges you, and these can be passed back when calling the Starshipit API (although they will still not show in the New Order page).
4. Set up your product codes
Add your product codes to complete the integration. You can get a list of valid product codes for a destination address by using the product code finder tool in the tools tab. Known product codes are:
