I know in "shipping methods" there is a module for DHL but the knowledge-base says "DHL is available for international shipments, but is not used for local shipments". Also it tells me nothing about what the module does. Because of this I think this module is useless for me.

I want the user to view DHL shipping tracking. How can I do this?

Update

You can add a tracking number to an order. Looks like the DHL module will do what I need. Where do I get the account for this DHL API xmlpi-ea.dhl.com?

I installed the official DHL Magento module but it's config page returns a 404 error. Also there is a developer page where you can get an account.

    if the config page inside of Magento returns a 404 - please log out and login from the admin interface. That is a common effect when installing new modules. – Alex Jun 11 '13 at 14:21

  • I still don't have a solution. DHL Plugin is running and with some tricks I can track the package from the admin page but the user does not get any tracking link. – PiTheNumber Jun 12 '13 at 8:55
  • Does the customer get mails when you create the shipment? The mail template for shipments should include the tracking code in case it is properly added to the backend. – Alex Jun 12 '13 at 12:07
  • Yes, if I click a checkbox it does send a mail including the tracking code. I guess I can modify the email template somehow so it converts this code into a tracking link to DHL... – PiTheNumber Jun 12 '13 at 12:42

I guess a simple solution is to edit the email template and add a tracking link:
