Australia Post Shipping – Feature Highlights
Live Shipping Rates
- By using Australia Post Live Shipping Rates WordPress ecommerce plugin, you can get live rates from Australia Post for your parcel & letter shipments. All the rates for shipping services are calculated based on the latest rates provided by Australia Post. Live rates will be shown on checkout page and Cart page as well.
Live Contract Shipping Rates
- With our WooCommerce Australia Post Shipping Extension, you can fetch live contract shipping rates right from Australia Post website. Build trust with your audience by showing exactly what they have to pay if they are buying from your e-commerce website. The admin can enable multiple shipping methods from the WooCommerce Backend and our plugin will fetch live rates for them from the official Australia Post website.
Australia Post Configurations
- Set up handling fees, cash on delivery fees and warehouse postcode on your WordPress Ecommerce Website with the help of our shipping plugin. With Australia Post Shipping choose whether the delivery of the shipments should be done to specific countries or other countries. Admin will also be able to select whether default product type will be letter product or parcel product.
- Get enhanced inbuilt services like Satchel Services and Cheapest Delivery Rates. Australia post Satchel services enable customers to use predefined Satchels for their parcels. With the ‘Cheapest Rates Option’, admin lets user opt for the shipping service with cheapest rates. Other services are not shown to the users. You can also set ‘Signature on Delivery’ and Extra Cover for your Shipments.
Shipping Rates Configuration
- There is an Australia post parcel rates module through which you can select attributes for dimensions of the product (length, width, height) and unit for weight. Set default values for the dimensions which are considered when the product's dimension is not set. These values help retailers to generate shipping rates easily.
Label Printing Service
- Admin can generate labels for orders after generating shipment for store orders. With the WooCommerce Label Printing Service, the merchant generates shipment labels having Australia Post logo in defined sizes and formats. For generating labels, merchants need to create a layout of the label for parcel and express post from available options. The generated label is then attached on the shipment.
- Admin can generate Custom boxes which are displayed if the package’s dimension and weight match with the defined custom box dimensions. Outer dimension can be used as a final package dimension. Here, box weight and product weight need to be lower than maximum allowed weight.
Shipment Tracking Service
- Australia Post Tracking plugin helps your customers to track the shipment details of their parcels. Merchant can set email configuration through which Australia post can send shipment generation emails to customer. Customers can also track the shipment from their accounts.
- The WordPress ecommerce plugin also offers Address Validation Services admin. So while providing the address, if users writes a wrong pin-code, admin can rectify it at the moment of generating the shipment.
Points to Note
- Australia Post follows specific guideline for weight, height and width, which can be referred from http://auspost.com.au/parcels-mail/size-and-weight-guidelines.html
- Our plugin supports any WooCommerce default dimension unit. You can select a dimension and we will use appropriate unit while getting live rates from Australia Post.
- Until and unless cart weight does not exceed weight limit, (for domestic 22 kg and for International 20 kg) the rates are fetched considering it as a single package.
- Admin has to set default dimension and weight. Otherwise, it may provide inappropriate results while getting rates.
- In extra cover service, the plugin uses cart total as extra cover amount. This is applicable only if one combined package of products is to be shipped. Otherwise, each product gets its own extra cover.

How will extension fetch the rates for products?
1. Firstly, feasibility of shipping one combined package of products is checked. If it is feasible, availability for custom boxes is checked. If it is enabled and available, the box’s outer dimensions are used as a package to fetch rates. Here final package weight is considered as the original package weight. The chosen custom-box weight must be lower than the custom-box.
2. If custom-box is disabled or unavailable and only one combined package of products is to be shipped, then the package dimension is used as the final dimension.
3. If one combined package of products can’t be shipped, the plugin checks if the individual packaging method is enabled or not and fetches individual rates for the same and displays it. Otherwise no rates will be displayed.
