Share Article

ShipperHQ, a powerful shipping rate management platform, adds support for Australia Post and StarTrack services to its list of enterprise-grade functionality.

Our partnership gives retailers control over exactly what options their customers see, plus the confidence that the order will arrive at their customers' door exactly as they intend it to.

Today, ShipperHQ and Australia Post announced an integration that will empower Australian ecommerce retailers to configure more accurate shipping options that reflect the best value for their business and their customers.

This integration benefits retailers by making it simple to show many of the world-class logistics services offered by Australia Post and StarTrack on the retailer’s ecommerce website in real time without the need for any custom development or coding. Plus, with enterprise-grade functionality, ShipperHQ gives merchants the tools they need to be confident that the right rates and options are shown to every customer, every time.

The partnership with Australia Post will help retailers save cost and time managing their shipping rates, and give their customers the opportunity to receive service from the largest retail network in Australia. Australia Post provides reliable and affordable postal services to more than 80% of Australian residents and with ShipperHQ these services can easily be customized to fit retailer’s needs. This allows retailers to increase profits, decrease cart abandonment, and offer more diverse shipping options and promotions than their competition.

ShipperHQ was built to handle the most complex shipping requirements and makes it easy to discount or surcharge live and custom rates, ship perishables, ship oversize packages and freight, and set rules to show special shipping options based on predetermined criteria. Advanced functionality includes allowing retailers to offer options for store pickup, dropship from multiple locations, displaying the estimated delivery date, allowing customers to select their preferred delivery date/time slot, etc.

“Competitive shipping rates and options are proven to be a key consideration of online buyers. Likewise retailers need to understand the best way to ship and where they can offer promotions, where items will be expensive and to which zones, especially in a country as large as Australia,” says Karen, CEO and Founder of ShipperHQ. “By bringing together the logistics expertise of Australia Post and StarTrack with the powerful functionality within ShipperHQ, retailers have control over exactly what options their customers see and how much they charge for them plus the confidence that the order will arrive at their customer’s door exactly as they intend it to.”

ShipperHQ and Australia Post have and will continue to work together to give retailers the ability to enhance their checkout with the rates and options their customers expect all while providing the delivery services they need. Currently, this offering is available on Magento, BigCommerce, Shopify and WooCommerce, with further platform integrations planned in 2017.

The ShipperHQ team is attending MagentoLive Australia 2016 as Gold sponsors. They are available for meetings and will be showing off the new Australia Post integration through a live demo at booth 6.
