Anybody interested in a DHL intraship add-on for the EU can contact me.

With this add-on you can make DHL intraship labels with one click, straight from cs-cart's order page. Tracking code is being added automatically when the label has been generated.

With a small tweak in cs-cart's template we can also make the tracking number clickable in the invoice email.

We have a test version up & running with DHL's test environment and cs-cart 2.25 and it's working great. We are now waiting for DHL to give their OK for the software.

After we have upgraded our shops to cs-cart v3 we will adapt the add-on for this version as well and start selling it to people who are interested.

This was a really shitty job - 2 developers almost tore their hair out because DHL's api is one big mess. In the end we found the right code by trial & error.

If there is any interest I can also look into integrating other EU shippers or customize the add-on for these.

This add-on will be sold for € 125,-

See screenshots below (also showing: notes add-on, marketing questions add-on, and view all customers previous orders at once add-on). It almost can't be easier.

How does this addon manage volumetric weight and multi-package shipments?
Are customers automatically alerted about DHL shipping status changes or shipping exceptions?

1. It doesn't - we have a very simple contract that allows us to ship huge boxes until 30kg, we have never had to use anything else then the weight. Also, we never ship more then 1 package per order.

2. The customer receives a clickable tracking code in cs-carts invoice mail. It doesn't send out extra mails other than cs-cart status' mails. We don't think it's necessary flooding their mailboxes with mails from shipping companies. If they want to track, they simply click on the link.

Is it possible to mod to work in 2.1.4?
