Before you can start shipping orders through Australia Post, you must first connect your Australia Post account to Small Parcel Suite from the Small Parcel Settings page.
Once you connect a customer's Australia Post account to Small Parcel Suite, you cannot use your primary warehouse account for that customer when shipping with Australia Post.
- Navigate to the Small Parcel space, then select Settings and choose a customer from the drop-down menu.
- In the Carrier Accounts section, click Create.
- Using the drop-down menus, specify whether you are setting up a 'Warehouse Account' or 'Customer Account', select the relevant warehouse or customer, choose Australia Post, then click Next.
- For 'Account Nickname', enter a descriptive name to identify the account.
- Enter your 'Account Number', 'API Key', and 'API Secret' in the corresponding fields, then click Connect to receive a confirmation message.
If you need help retrieving your API credentials, please reach out to your account representative at Australia Post.
Once connected, the carrier account is instantly set up, and your warehouse can start shipping against the account.
If this carrier account is registered in a country that is different from where your 3PL account is located (defined under Admin > Manage Company Info), you must first reach out to Support so they can update this carrier account's home country before you can begin shipping with the account.
We recommend printing 1–2 test shipping labels at least one business day in advance of needing to print labels for active shipments.
If you plan on connecting multiple accounts for a single carrier, please see Connecting Multiple Accounts for the Same Carrier before repeating Steps 1–5 above.
