Shipping rate calculation in Australia

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to set up a site to sell photographic prints. I want to be able to calculate shipping and insurance cost in the checkout process utilising Australian carriers like Australia Post, FastWay, TNT or CouriersPlease. Reading the extension information, it appeared that Easyship was a perfect match. However, the Shipping at Checkout feature is not availble for SquareSpace.

The shipping cost will be driven by item size and weight, and the customer delivery address.

Can anyone please suggest how I can acheive this.

Cheers Ola

Squarespace cannot calculate shipping costs for customers, at least not outside the US.

You'll need to manually estimate your shipping costs and enter these details (based on size, weight and country) or require customers to contact you for a shipping quote before they purchase.

If you need this feature, I recommend Shopify. This is a much more advanced ecommerce platform with many more ecommerce focussed features than Squarespace, although it's fair to say that it has a higher learning curve, isn't as design-friendly and can be a little more expensive. However, it does have carrier-calculated shipping on the checkout page! For example, real-time Australia Post and StarTrack shipping rates for domestic & international shipments.
