If there’s one thing most small business owners are short on, it’s time. Working in a small team, or even by yourself, means you often have to wear multiple hats – from receptionist to CEO, you have to do it all.
That’s why savvy business owners are always on the lookout for ways to save time, and hassle running their small business. Luckily, it seems the team at Australia Post understand the struggles of small business owners, improving on their offering with initiatives like MyPost Business – a range of time saving products designed specifically with small businesses in mind.
In addition to being able to send parcels from your local post office or street posting box, you can now schedule parcel pickups from your home or office, provided you're located in major metropolitan areas.
All you need to do is pay for and print your parcel labels on A4 paper, stick them on and let Australia Post take care of the rest.
Simply scan in your shipping label or parcel satchel, and enter your customer’s email address — they'll receive automated tracking notifications and be able to keep an eye on their parcel while it’s in transit. Each parcel will also be added to your tracking list, so you can have visibility on all orders.
Connect your eBay store to MyPost Business and you'll be able to import your customer's delivery details in one go. You can then print parcel labels and process deliveries for multiple customers in the one place.
If you use online marketplaces like Etsy and Shopify, you can now import your customer order details with our new CSV importing tool. You can then pay for and process shipping for multiple orders from your online stores, all from one convenient location..
Anyone involved in a small business knows that running it goes well beyond the usual 9-5 work day. Fortunately, MyPost Business will be there to help with any questions you might have about your parcel sending, at any time.
Their extended hours phone support is open from 8am - 8pm AEST, or you can contact them using the 24/7 online support service. So even if you’re burning the midnight oil and you run into a problem, support is never far away.
