I want to mark China Post packages as being sent with DHL. Is this ok?

In our opinion it's not ok. You should always be transparent with both customers and PayPal representatives, as you risk losing disputes by not submitting accurate information. However, if you put "DHL" in Shopify, there's nothing we can do but submit the same carrier to PayPal. Just like your assistant would :)
