Aus Post Teams Up With BigCommerce For Shipping
Australia Post has inked a strategic partnership with e-commerce platform BigCommerce to integrate its MyPost Business parcel sending service.
The move will see Australia-based BigCommerce merchants gain access to the MyPost Business shipping and automation tools, as well as its rates and benefits.
Australia Post says merchants will see easier shipping and savings on domestic and international sending, as well as the ability to print shipping labels from home.
According to Gary Starr, Executive General Manager of Business, Government and International at Australia Post, the partnership will allow retail merchants and small businesses to enjoy the benefits of automation.
“With e-commerce accelerating rapidly, growing by more than 57 percent in 2020 alone, we are working closely with our customers to help them strengthen their online offering, in addition to assisting traditional brick-and-mortar retailers to come online for the first time.
“We’re excited to partner with BigCommerce on this initiative to give more online retailers access to the MyPost Business platform, via ShipStation, and help them streamline their shipping processes, making it easier for them to grow their business online,” he said.
Shannon Ingrey, Vice President and General Manager of APAC for BigCommerce, said the partnership is part of BigCommerce’s effort to provide its clients with tools to expand their businesses.
“This partnership demonstrates the first step in a strategic alignment between BigCommerce and Australia Post by offering our merchants access to an extensive suite of ecommerce tools and an end-to-end ecommerce journey,” he said.
The integration is available to all new and existing BigCommerce merchants from today, and comes hot on the heels of a partnership with the Commonwealth Bank to provide business banking customers with access to the platform.
