Australia Post has recently made an official announcement stating that it will be replacing the eParcel Online parcel service with the new solution Parcel Send by June 2020.
Since the acquisition of Star Track by Australia Post back in 2014, Star Track had been running as an Australia Post vertical company.
However, from June 2020 onwards, Star Track won’t be functioning anymore as a vertical company. Rather, the new solution Parcel Send will replace it. It will give access to Star Track and Australia Post eParcel products. As per the Australia Post officials, “This initiative is intended to improve the security of the entire shipment process and delivery services further.”
So, if you have been using eParcel so far, it’s time you upgraded/switched to AusPost Parcel Send to continue availing Australia Post mail services beyond June 2020.
We would like to inform all our current eParcel extension users that we are changing the name of our current eParcel module from eParcel Online to Parcel Send in accordance with the Australia Post update.
Further, we take delight in informing and assuring you all that you don’t need to worry about the switch from eParcel to Parcel Send. As our Parcel Send (formerly eParcel Online) module is fully compatible with the new Parcel Send service of Australia Post.
We also consider it important to inform our Star Track module users that they would need to upgrade to our Parcel Send module as their Star Track module won’t be effective after June. Nevertheless, we will try providing all the assistance our users need for upgrading their current Star Track module to our new Parcel Send module.
For any kind of queries or concerns, feel free to drop us a line using our online chat on the bottom right corner and we’ll help you solve them all and make a seamless Magento 2 Australia Post eParcel switch to Parcel Send.
