Create transformation

With the help of transformations you can convert values that are in your import file to values that DPD Shipper can use.

For example, imagine your importfile contains the countries with full names (like Belgium) yet Shipper only recognizes ISO notations (like BE) so you'd have to make a transformation that tells Shipper to transform Belgium from your file to BE.

To create a transformation, choose Import profiles, Transformations and Add in the left menu.
In the screen that appears you give your transformation a name and a code, a description is optional.
With the button Allow unknown source values you allow that values can also be imported that have not been converted.

At Value mappings you click on add to add values.

Click the Save button when you're done

Afterwards you go back to your created import profile (Import Profile --> Shipments) to assign the transformation to the correct field. In our example, we made a transformation for the Country so that's the field you would apply it to.

Sample files

You can import these sample files into Shipper and then adjust them to your needs.
