Live Shipping Rate
Based on the product weight, box dimensions, shipping destination, etc., this plugin fetches Australia Post postage rates for both domestic and international shipping services. If you have Contracted account, you can choose to access only contracted services.
Print eParcel Shipping Label (for Contracted Rates)
Print Australia Post eParcel shipping labels, both domestic & international from within WooCommerce. After logging in to the WordPress admin area, you can create a shipment by clicking the ‘Create shipment’ button on the right-hand side of the order details page. Shipment details would automatically be sent to the Australia Post online account, and then the shipping label would be generated, which you can print. Although you can create shipments in bulk in the WooCommerce Orders Page, you can use the bulk label printing add-on to create multiple shipments at once as well as print them in a single PDF file. Postage is automatically paid on these labels using your Australia Post account. The plugin prints shipping labels with a tracking barcode. You should know that the printing shipping label is only available for Contracted accounts.
eParcel International Shipping Documents

Live tracking number gets added to customer order details. The plugin allows you to define custom tracking messages as well.
Parcel Packaging Options

- Individual Item Packing
- Pack Into Custom Boxes with Weights and Dimensions

Thank you for a great plugin — I especially like the Tracking Code editor in the admin area!! — well done.
The ALL TIME best plugins for shipping with in Australia. I have now purchased 2 plugins from Xadaptor (DHL & Australia Post) and the support has been amazing. The label printing feature for both DHL and Australia Post shipments has saved our staff hours of time!
The support is above and beyond what you would expect from a wordpress plugin – their response time for any issues is outstanding. Couldn’t have done it without you. Keep up the good work, I will spread the word to my local Australian customers!
When I purchased the plugin I still had a few questions. The Support team were fabulous. Hard to find service these days Support that is prompt and eager to assist and these guys were quick and extremely helpful. Would def recommend the plugin and know that help is never far away if you need it. – Thank you
Love the plugin, provides us with absolutely everything we need for our customers, both domestic and international. The biggest bonus for us is that it covers both parcel and letter rates, which gives us the flexibility we need to ship our product in various sized options for customers.Support, second to none. Prompt and professional!No hesitation at all in recommending!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What happens when the one year license expires?
After the plugin’s one year license expires the plugin will continue to work as normal but the download permission will be revoked so the updates for the plugin will stop. You can always renew the license at a 20% discount which will be provided on request.
Will the tracking information be sent to the customer once the labels are generated?
Yes. Once the labels are generated you need to mark the order as completed. The tracking information will be sent to the customer. Make sure you have enabled the email service enabled in the WooCommerce settings for order completion.
Can I use only Product weight for calculating the shipping cost?
Yes, you can use weight-based packing. But all products need to have weight and dimension in them since the API require at least two package dimension to be over 5cm.
Can I offer flat rate/free shipping in the cart and use the plugin only for labels?
Yes, you can disable the real-time rates option in the plugin settings and use the plugin only to create shipment labels. But make sure the order has some shipping option already selected in the order and the products need to have weight and dimension.
Will the plugin work if my shop location is out of Australia?
No. The Australia Post service works only if the ‘ship from address’ is Australia (AU). It will not work if you have a ship-from address outside of Australia.
What are the print layouts supported out of the box? I have a thermal printer.
Supported layouts include A4 & Thermal Label.
It is mandatory to have HF-Tariff code for International shipments. How does your plugin handles this?

Yes, you can choose to print manifest in the WooCommerce menu and choose the date for which you want to print the manifest.

Right now, the plugin merges the option for satchel rates under Regular and Express post option and it never shows up, but we plan on giving it as a separate option soon.
Can I print labels for Satchel rates using the plugin?
No. The Satchel rates option is available only for non-contracted users by AusPost API and to print the labels you need to have a contract account.
Is it possible for the customer to choose insurance and signature option while placing an order?
Yes, we have added Extra Cover option to choose the insurance option as well as the signature option in the shop’s checkout page. The customers can then choose to include those options at extra cost.
