To verify before shipping with DHL
To get access the DHL partnership, you must be registered on Afrikrea and connect to your shop space.
Weight of the package
Indicate the superior denomination
When you fill in the weight of the package, indicate the superior denomination if the weight is between 2 denominations.
- Your package weighs 1.7kgs you must automatically list the weight as 2kgs.
- Your package weighs 0.6kgs you must automatically list the weight as 1kg.
DHL often uses the volumetric weight to determine the weight of a package, the larger the packaging, the higher the weight. The calculation formula is as follows: (length x width x height) / 5000 per package.
So bags, tote bags, flyers (packaging supplied by DHL) should be favored as packaging.
To avoid custom fees
We advise to put a declared value of 10€ maximum for parcels to France. On the other hand, you are not immune to the value of your package being reassessed at customs.
For other destinations this is not important as the customs thresholds are higher. Currently, the VAT threshold in France is at 22€ while in the USA it is 800$.
