To use DHL eCommerce as a shipping partner, you will need a business account with the carrier that provides access to its Packet Plus and Parcel Direct services.
Please indicate on this form whether you already have a DHL eCommerce account or whether you will be setting one up. If you need to set up an account, DHL will contact you. If you already have a DHL account, add the account details to the form. An Amazon representative will contact you within two business days to link the account with Amazon.
Your DHL account can be linked with Seller Central using either the Amazon-negotiated rate card or a self-negotiated rate card. See the Shipping pricing and payments section below for details.
Once setup is complete, you will get confirmation from Amazon and you can start buying DHL eCommerce shipping labels through Amazon’s Buy Shipping service.
With Amazon’s Buy Shipping services, sellers’ items ship via courier mode using Courier Shipping Bill V (CSB-V).
CSB-V provides benefits to Indian exporters, including:
India’s Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) ruled in 2018 that commercial shipments valued at less than INR 500,000 are allowed via courier mode using CSB-V. However, DHL eCommerce is accepting only shipments valued at less than INR 50,000 and with a total weight of less than 28 kg.
