Will AusCarrier work on the Shopify Basic Plan?
Yes it will!
AusCarrier needs Real-Time Carrier Shipping (RTCS) enabled. Shopify let’s you enable Real-Time Carrier Shipping on a Basic Plan by:
- (Recommended) Paying for your Basic Shopify plan up front for 12-months.
You can then Contact Shopify and ask them, “Please activate Real-Time Carrier Shipping on my Shopify store as I have paid for 12-months upfront on the Basic Plan”, or
- Contact Shopify and opt to pay $20 p/month for Real-Time Carrier Shipping to be activated on the Basic Plan.
The other alternative is to sign up with the Advanced Shopify plan (https://www.shopify.com.au/pricing) for $299 p/month where Real-Time Carrier Shipping is part of the plan.
Real-Time Carrier Shipping (RTCS) must be activated before AusCarrier has been installed. If you installed AusCarrier before RTCS was activated then you will need to uninstall AusCarrier, then activate RTCS, and once-again re-install AusCarrier.
My store has Real-Time Carrier Shipping activated, how do I get AusCarrier working?
- You can install Shopify from your store or install AusCarrier directly from the AusCarrier site,
- Activate Australia Post or Fastway or both,
- That’s it. You’re done.
