2. Prepare your return

Remove any old labels from your package. If you no longer have the original box, make sure you have another sturdy packaging. Print the return label and stick it clearly visible on your package. If you have opted for a QR code, we will print the label for you at the DHL ServicePoint. In the e-mail with your QR code you can read how that works exactly.

How do I return my shipment?

Sometimes you can arrange the return free of charge via the webshop where you did your purchase. In other cases, you can easily do it yourself online. You create a return label and enter the webshop's address details. If you don't have a printer, you can opt for a QR code.

How do I pack my return shipment?

If you still have the original box, you can use it to return your package. Otherwise, a new, sturdy box will also work fine. Close it with a piece of tape or adhesive tape, then you can be sure that your return will arrive safely at the sender.

Packaging advice

What is the current status of my return shipment?

As soon as you have dropped off your parcel at a DHL point, you will receive a track and trace link. This allows you to track your parcel online.

If you returned an online order but don't see a new status in track and trace after the parcel has been sorted, you can assume that the parcel has been transferred to the online store where you ordered the parcel.
