Activating Australia Post MyPost Business Fulfilment

From Spiffy Stores Knowledge Base

Spiffy Stores provides an easy-to-use integration with MyPost Business. Step-by-step instructions can be found below.

Before you activate the Australia Post MyPost Business fulfilment service, please ensure that you have your MyPost Business Partners Token. The step-by-step instructions on how to get your Partners Token are documented in the article Using Australia Post MyPost Business.

Click Activate and enter all the details, then tick the option to make this fulfilment service the default service for your store, if necessary. You should do this if you are using MyPost Business to ship the majority, if not all, of your store's items.

Configuring MyPost Business

If you've provided the correct Partners Token, then your MyPost Business fulfilment service should be active and ready for configuration.

There are four steps that must be done to correctly configure your MyPost Business service.

  • Select your payment method, either Credit Card or Charge Account, if applicable
  • Confirm your Pickup address
  • Select and map shipping rates
  • Select label printing options

Configure Store Pickup Address

Your Spiffy Stores store address is used as the default pickup address for your store. Please update this as necessary to ensure that the address is correct.

Assign Shipping Rates

There are a number of different shipping services that can be used by your MyPost Business account. You need to assign these to the list of shipping rates that you have defined in the Shipping & Handling section of your admin interface.

You may not want to use MyPost Business for all of your shipping rates. For example, if you have defined a local Pickup shipping rate to allow customers to pickup goods from your store, then you would select the Do not use MyPost Business option for this shipping rate.

You can use the assignments to select different MyPost Business services for different shipping rates. For example, you may offer free shipping, so you may want to map that shipping rate to the Parcel Post Flat Rate Box rate for MyPost Business. For customers who choose to pay extra, you may have defined another shipping rate to offer express post shipping, and you would map this rate to the Express Post Flat Rate Box rate for MyPost Business.

If you use the Australia Post shipping rate calculator, then you will only have one shipping rate defined, but the customer may be offered a range of shipping rates to choose from. In this case, you will need to select Ask at fulfilment time as the MyPost Business option. If you do this, then you will be shown a set of MyPost Business services to choose from that you can use to ship the item when processing the order.

The range of MyPost Business service options shown depends upon the current set of products that are supported for this offering.

Configure Label Printing Options

You can configure the way that the labels for the Parcel Post and Express Post services are printed.

For both services, you can choose the layout of the labels.

The valid options for Parcel Post are

  • A4-1pp (1 label per page)
  • A4-4pp (4 labels per page)
  • A6-1pp (1 label per page)

The valid options for Express Post are

  • A4-1pp (1 label per page)
  • A4-4pp (4 labels per page)
  • A6-1pp (1 label per page)

If you are using pre-printed stationary from Australia Post, then the Branded option should not be ticked. Select this option only if you are printing on blank stationary and want the Australia Post branding to be printed.
