    Step 3: Create your Invoice

    DHL can generate an invoice according to your shipment data or you can upload your own invoice.

    Step 4: Packaging

    Select your packaging type, such as box, card envelope, etc. and select the packaging quantity. If different packages are used, you can add other types of packaging as necessary.

    Step  5: Choose your Payment Method
