This option is set to inactive by default so if you'd like your customers to have the option of using Australia Post Shipping, then check out the information below and follow these steps to set it up.
The Australia Post Domestic Shipping option gives your customers a more affordable way to take delivery of their prints. At just $8.00AUD to anywhere within Australia it represents great value for money (especially for smaller print orders) but we ask you to take the time to familiarise yourself with the details of this delivery method before activating it.
* Only available for prints that are sized 8×12″ and under. * Maximum weight is 300 Grams (Approx 100g in prints + 200g internal packaging) * Maximum quantity of ten 8×12″ or twenty 5×7″ prints per package (or variations within these parameters). * Only available to Australian Direct Fulfillment customers (on the Plus+ or Premium plans) * Shipped via Australia Post Standard Delivery
Please note - If a customer order exceeds any of the limitations listed above, the Aust Post shipping option will become unavailable in the check-out process.
* Prints and order paperwork are bound to 3mm thick sheet of corrugated cardboard and sealed in a plastic sleeve * A 1mm thick cardboard is placed against plastic sleeve to protect print face * Cardboard sandwich is then shrink wrapped in a waterproof plastic coating * Single piece is then inserted into a standard C4 (324mm x 229mm) envelope * “Do Not Bend” sticker placed prominently across face of envelope
PLEASE NOTE: the DO NOT BEND sticker does not guarantee that the parcel will not be bent during shipping. PhotoMerchant accepts no responsibility for prints shipped using this option - for guaranteed delivery we recommend using the Toll Priority option.
