The overall purpose of the DHL WP plugin is nice, but since I have less than 200 shipments per year, I am not qualified to apply for a “business customer” account. However, to select DHL as shipping provider, the Customer Number (EKP) is required, which is not available to private customers/ when having fewer than 200 shipments.

The plugin does what it is supposed to do, no more and no less.When we had questions / problems, the support helped us quickly and competently.

Nothing is working as expected. So much GUI-fails ….. Please use your another Plugin for connecting with DHL.Services.

I’ve been using the plugin happily for 4 years, but for about 3 months if I mark all orders in the overview and want to generate labels, only about 5-10% are created. when I go into the order, I can generate the label. But that is of course not the long-term solution, since it is a very large effort
