I have been using the Elex Australia Post Shipping Plugin for years and it is a must have for any Australian Woocommerce store. Their customer service is very friendly and can fix complex problems quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend this plugin to every Australian Woocommerce store using Australia Post to ship their products both locally and internationally.

Have had the paid version for a year and no issues. When we did need help with something I was happy to find that the support is quick and willing. I initially chose this one because the free version provides international shipping rates. However, combined shipping/packaging does require the full version. Has lots of other features we aren’t using, but am happy to have them in case we do. Nice plugin overall.

I’ve been collaborating with ElExtensions for about a month now. Whenever an issue arises, the team promptly joins a call to address it. Their thorough analysis is instrumental in pinpointing the root cause of any problems. They patiently guide me through each step in case the plugin encounters any failures. I’m delighted to continue working with ElExtensions. Initially, my plugin faced limitations due to the absence of a StarTrack premium business account with Australia Post. However, ElExtensions provided invaluable support by offering alternative solutions, demonstrating remarkable patience in answering all my inquiries. I’m grateful for the prompt and patient assistance from the Australia Post product manager. My sincere thanks to her and the entire team.

Have tried to get this to work since September last year. Have spent 60+ hours on phone calls/Google Meets with Elextensions and Australia Post IT support. On one ocassion burned a whole day to find out there servers were down. There are two key issues: The Australian Eastern Seaboard time zone does not match up with their support at all. 4.30pm is the ONLY time available between business hours here so you often have to wait days before you can get a time slot that works unless you are happy to book a time at 1 am. We cannot get a price through the API if a product has a dimension smaller than 15cm*15cm*15cm?? 06/03/24 – updateMet with the team again and this time they walked through the configuration via a screen share and were able to advise that in order to get a postage price through the API for items smaller than 15*15*15cm we needed to have flat rates enabled. The team also wrote some code, added that to the plug in and sent me a zip to reinstall the plug in and guess what?? After 6 months we finally have it working!!! Thank you team Elex.

Have been using the paid version of this plugin on numerous woocommerce sites. Any issues I’ve had the Elex team have been able to provide support on. Some features are only available to ‘contracted’ AusPost clients. Small time business may not have this type of account with AusPost so wont get access to those advanced features. Thats an AusPost thing and not an Elex thing. Recommend this product for AusPost shipping calculator.

Plugin covers all our needs regarding Australia Post options. We use many of the possible customizations, like discount for some options, we renamed a few others, and charge handling fees for others. Very happy with product.
