    Magento 2 Marketplace Australian Post Shipping

    Australian Post Shipping is an Australian government-owned corporation that provides postal service both locally and internationally. Now, we have integrated it with the Webkul Magento 2 Marketplace.

    Using the Magento 2 Marketplace Australia Post Shipping, the admin and the sellers can provide their customers to select the Australia Post shipping method for getting their shipments delivered. Thus, this shipment method can be used for shipping the products within Australia and internationally.

    Thus, this extension is an add-on of the Webkul’s Marketplace. To make use of this extension you must first install the Multi Vendor Marketplace module.

    Features

    • The admin can enable or disable the Marketplace Australia Post method.
    • The admin can set the Marketplace Australia Post shipping method name that will be shown on the front-end.
    • The handling fee can even be specified by the store owner.
    • Australia Post shipping rate will be calculated from the seller’s address.
    • The admin can allow sellers to save their Australia Post Credentials.
    • Shipments can be delivered domestically/locally(within Australia) and internationally(from Australia to other countries).

    Installation

    Hence, the customers will get a zip folder and they have to extract the contents of this zip folder on their system.

    The extracted folder has an src folder, inside the src folder you have the app folder. So, you need to transfer this app folder into the Magento2 root directory on the server as shown below.

    Hereafter the successful installation, you have to run these commands in the Magento2 root directory:

    First command –


    Second Command


    Run the Third Command


    Post running the commands, you have to flush the cache from the Magento admin panel by navigating through->System->Cache management as shown below.

    Configuration For Multi-Lingual Support

    For multilingual support, the admin will navigate through Store->Configuration->General ->Locale Options. Thus, select the locale as German (the language into which the admin wants to translate his store content).

    Translation

    If you need to do the module translation, please navigate the following path in your system app/code/Webkul/MpAuspost/i18n. Now, open the file named en_US.CSV for editing.

    Once you have opened the file for editing. Replace the words after the comma(,) on the right with your translated words.

    After editing the CSV file, save it and then upload it to the same folder. Now your module translation is complete.

    Admin Configuration

    Thus, post the successful installation of the extension, the admin will navigate to Stores->Configuration-> Sales->Shipping Methods->Webkul Marketplace Australia Post Shipping.

    Hence, to configure the extensionthe admin will  –

    • Set the Handling Fee if any that will be applicable.
