Australia Post Shipping for Shopify is a Shopify application that allows you to integrate Australia Post shipping calculation with your Shopify store.
The application displays a list of shipping options and corresponding shipping cost at your Shopify cart page in real time based on items being ordered. Once customers select a shipping method, the shipping cost is added to the cart and customers can complete their purchases. You can choose to place your surcharge on top of Australia Post to recover some of the processing cost.
The benefits of using real time rates instead of flat shipping rates are
- Customers are charged reasonable rate according to the items being ordered.
- You are assured that you will not lose money on shipping items.
- Should Australia Post changes its rates, you are protected as rates are returned in real time.
- Allow customers to choose shipping methods based on cost and delivery time.
