Once you get this information from DHL, login ShipStation and head to your ‘Carriers & Fulfillment’ settings.
Head to your Account Settings (the gear icon in the upper right).
Next, select Shipping and then Carriers & Fulfillment from the sidebar on the left.
On the Carriers & Fulfillments page, click + Add a Provider Account.
Select DHL eCommerce from the Connect a Shipping or Fulfillment Provider popup.
On the page that appears, fill in your DHL account information and select the services you will be using in ShipStation.
Once this is done, click Connect and the account will be connected.
To complete the setup process, generate a sample label for each of the services you will be utilizing. Once those labels are generated, submit a manifest back to DHL for these generated labels. Once this is done, your DHL eCommerce account will be fully-connected and ready to use! Just keep in mind that DHL eCommerce doesn't transmit rates via an API, so ShipStation (or similar other third party softwares) will not be able to receive rates for DHL eCommerce orders.
