Modifications have been made to the MyDHL Courier to allow for Commodity codes to be sent instead of SKU’s.


Once an update has been applied and the relevant dll's have been updated, two new Courier configuration options are available to the user from [ Courier | Shipping | Couriers ].

  1. Open a System Data screen (show me how).
  2. Double click on [ Courier | Shipping | Couriers ].
  3. Focus on your MyDHL courier.
  4. Right click and select Configure.
    1. Find the Use Commodity Description option and select as required:
      1. TICKED: the <ItemDescription> field will export the commodity code of the item as set in [ Stock | Detail | Accounting ] screen.
      2. UNTICKED: the <ItemDescription> will use the stock items description from the [ Stock | Detail | Properties  ] Screen.
    2. Find the Take DHL Commodity Desc from items option and select as required:
      1. TICKED: the <Commodities><Description> value will be taken from the first two stock item Commodity codes.
      2. UNTICKED: the <Commodities><Description> value will be taken from the courier configuration option, “Goods Description”.


Once configured steps for usage are as follows:

  1. Create a new Sales Order and add items.
  2. Move the Sales Order to the Sales Invoice Manager and process it through to the shipping stage.
  3. Assign to the MyDHL courier.
  4. Assign to Courier.
  5. When the order data is sent up to MyDHL the <ItemDescription> and <Commodities><Description> will be sent based on the configuration options set for the courier.

Notes & Caveats

If the option “Use commodity Code” or “Take DHL Commodity Desc from items” are set and the stock item has no Commodity Codes set for the shipping country, the field will be exported as blank i.e. <itemDescription /> and will not fall back to use the item description.
