Australia Post version 2.0.2 – Major UI changes and lots of New Features
The latest version of our ELEX WooCommerce Australia Post Shipping Plugin with Print Label & Tracking has a number of improvements.
1) Shipping Label API Modified
2) Australia Post Order/Manifest API Implemented.
3) UI Changed

5) Email Tracking Option Introduced.
6) Shipment Description Option Introduced.
7) Email and Phone Number Fields Introduced.

9) Customer Address Type Option Implemented.
1. Shipping Label API Modified
API modified because we are supporting StarTrack API now. That’s because Australia Post prefers to use StarTrack API.
2. Australia Post Order/Manifest API Implemented
Without Manifest (Order Summary), the shipment can get rejected at Customs check, causing penalty. So, Australia Post team wanted to implement it asap.
3. UI Changed
The modified UI is meant to give you a much better user experience with proper categorization of settings. We have moved from the “one-page settings” to a much sophisticated and clean look. The settings divided into “General”, “Rates & Services”, “Label & Tracking” and “Packaging”. Thus, your task of finding ‘where to configure what” gets easier.
4. 3 More services added
EXPRESS NATIONAL FULL RATE
NATIONAL FULL RATE
EXPRESS POST + SIGNATURE
5. Email Tracking Option Introduced
With this option, when enabled will allow Australia Post API to email tracking information to the customers.
6. Shipment Description Option Introduced
Your orders can now have a custom description.
7. Email & Phone Number Fields Introduced
Fields for Shipper’s email address and phone no. introduced.
8. Direct Download Option Introduced
With this option, when enabled, label and order summary will be downloaded directly instead of opening in a browser window.
9. Customer Address Type Option Implemented
Now you can specify the Address Type of the customer from among the options Normal Delivery Address, Australia Post Parcel Locker, Australia Post Parcel Collection location.
