Shipping via Online Shipping Portal

I use the Online Shipping Service of DPD. Why do I get a postcode error?

Often it is because international postcodes have a slightly different format than what we are used to in the Netherlands. Below is a list of the formats used in the countries that parcels can be sent to via pakkettenversturen.nl. If the table below does not solve the problem, please contact our Customer Service.

N = number, L = letter

Ireland

Ireland does not work with postcodes. Only Dublin. Dublin postcodes always have 7 characters:

- the 1st is always the letter D

- the 2nd and 3rd are always a number

The last four digits show the individual address and are made up of numbers and letters
