For shipping to Post Offices or Packstations, the receiver address needs to be entered according to DHL's requirements. More information can be found on the following pages:
For Parcel Announcements, the DHL Postnumber must be entered into the checkout. Here's an example how to do that:
- Hilfe zur Paketankündigung, section "Wie adressiere ich mein Paket richtig?"
For the DHL post number, the field "Company" can be used which is available in Magento by default.
Recommendation: DHL Location Finder
If you are using the DHL Versenden module, we recommend installing the additional DHL Location Finder extension to make entering the required data easier for the customer. More information about this can be found in this article.
This extension provides additional checkout fields (e.g. for the DHL Postnumber). The customer can also search for nearby DHL stations on an interactive map and use them, incl. address, post office number, etc.
