How to Setup the Australia Post Calculator?

I get numerous emails asking for help on this subject so I'm hoping that this new tutorial will help everyone out.

Firstly, this tutorial is for Australian hosted Featurecart store owners only.

1. Login to Featurecart (eg;

2. Click on the link in the left hand menu for 'Shipping'

3. On the page that comes up, click the tab/check box next to 'Use Real Time Rate Calculators' click the button to 'save changes'.

4. When the page reloads, click on the link to in the 'Use Real Time Rate Calculators' to 'Click to Setup'.

5. Click on the link in the Australia Post section to sign up to use the calculator. Follow the steps on the website. Make sure you agree to their terms.

6. Back on the Rate Calculators page in Featurecart, In the table fields at the top of the page fill in the 'Shipping From' fields. For country, simply select 'No US state'

7. Make sure in the Australia Post field you check the box next to 'Use Australia Post'.

8. 'Submit' your changes.

9. You will receive an email from but YOU DON'T NEED TO DO ANYTHING WITH THE INFORMATION IN THE EMAIL. Tony at wahmshoppes has already done all of this for his Australian Customers and by selecting to use the Aus Post calculator on in the store, it will automatically be set up for customers to choose from.

10. For each product within your store, you will need to add the shipping weight. You do this in the edit product section (where you add your products, title, description etc)

11. You don't need to enter anything in the field for 'Units of Measure'. Once you have opted to use the Aus Post Calculator, the unit of measure is set to grams.

12. In the 'Shipping Unit's field put in the weight of your item in grams. eg. 1kg would be '1000' 3kg would be '3000' Half a kg would be '500'. You don't need to put in the gms or grams text next to the weight.

If you have any further questions on use the Australia Post Calculator, please post them on the forum HERE

If you receive the following error message from your store via email after setting up the postage calculator:-

Your store has detected an Error in shipper: AUSPOST: STANDARD -
date 9:19:52 PM
Shipper Error Report : err_msg=Invalid Pickup Postcode supplied, maximum
length must not be greater than 4 digits

You have not completed the form in the Shipping>Real Time Rate Calculators'>Click to setup>'Shipping Form' section correctly.
