How it works

If you ship from Australia, shipping with Sendle is already available with your Shopify plan. Here’s how to get started:

  1. If you have an Australian Business Number (ABN), you’ll qualify for tax-free shipping on Shopify. To register your ABN, go to Settings and then to Billing. If you do not have an ABN, continue to step 2. 
  2. Go to your orders page, select any unfulfilled orders, and click Create shipping labels.
  3. Choose an existing package or add a new one, enter the total weight of your parcel, and review the customs information if you’re shipping internationally.
  4. Select a parcel collection method. You can either schedule a free parcel pickup, or drop the parcels off at a drop off location near you
  5. In the “Shipping date” section, select the date that you plan to have your parcels picked up or dropped off. Your customer will receive a shipping confirmation notification on this date. 
  6. Buy the shipping labels and print them from a desktop or thermal printer.
  7. Prepare your parcels and attach the printed shipping labels to the outside of the parcels.
  8. Leave the parcels for pickup, or drop them off at a Sendle location.

Affordable and convenient

Not only will you have access to some of the lowest Sendle shipping rates available anywhere, but you’ll also be able to manage your orders and shipping in one place.

Keep track of your orders, shipments, and parcel pickups all through your Shopify admin. Labels and international customs forms will be populated with the name and address of your customers—no need to copy and paste or write that information by hand.

You can also add your own packaging and save it for future use, or use Sendle compostable satchels. Sendle satchels allow you to ship domestically at a flat rate without any weight restrictions.

Charges for shipping labels will appear on your monthly Shopify invoice, which means less paperwork for you.

Sustainable door-to-door parcel delivery

Besides offering affordable flat-rate shipping across Australia, Sendle is a parcel delivery service that’s dedicated to sustainability.

Sendle composatable satchels are made out of biodegradable and compostable materials. In fact, Sendle is the first parcel delivery service in Australia to offer 100% carbon-neutral shipping.

Partnering with the South Pole Group, Sendle offsets all of their carbon emissions from shipping parcels. With these offsets, Sendle supports sustainability initiatives like wildlife conservation and clean energy projects.

Sendle is also proud to be a certified B Corp, meaning their business ideals are beneficial to society. Working to ship goods to customers in the most environmentally- responsible way possible, Sendle has been B Corp-certified since launching in 2014.
