We’re really excited to announce that streamlining your fulfilment and shipping processes just got easier as Starshipit now integrates directly with Australia Post’s MyPost Business.

MyPost Business is a simple and convenient solution for retailers who send less than 2,000 parcels a year. One of the key benefits of creating a MyPost Business account is you’ll receive parcel volume-based savings - this means the more parcels you send, the more you’ll save.

  • Retailers who send less than 2,000 parcels
  • Small businesses that are just getting started
  • Retailers who send more than 8 parcels a week

Bespoke eyewear fashion brand, Maude, accelerates eCommerce growth using MyPost Business

Creative Director and Owner of Maude, Courtenay Tyrrell, shared that one of her largest pain points was the fulfilment side of her business.

She explains, “Using Australia Post is the most reliable option, but one of my two biggest pain points is the amount of time it took to print a label. I would have to input so many fields for each package, mostly the same details every time, just to print one label. I would spend up to an hour or more a day filling in long forms. Since using MyPost Business I can automate all those manual entries and I save up to 60 min a day! “

Australia Post identified an opportunity to help small businesses like Courtenay’s streamline their shipping process. Customers like Maude can now use shipping automation platforms like Starshipit to automate manual tasks and small business owners like Courtenay couldn’t be happier.

“Automating all those manual tasks has unlocked so much time-saving! I make my product by hand, this means I can spend that hour a day making more!”
