How to enable DPD UK integration for Flexible Shipping shipping method?

When you are creating shipping methods, you can also enable integration with DPD.

Integration Select DPD UK to enable integration for this shipping method.

Service Choose the DPD UK service which will be used for this shipping method.

Please mind that not all of the DPD UK services you can choose from the Service dropdown list provide the 100% coverage of the UK area. If you get the ‘There are no shipping methods available…’ notice in the cart or checkout for specific postcodes, you may have to configure the additional shipping methods using the different services to make the entire UK territory be fully covered.
