    Hello guys,
    I am starting a business very soon,
    where i sell custom good that range in size from
    70mm x 70mm 50grams
    150 x 150mm 150 grams
    a4 size around 200grams
    maybe 300x 300 259 grams
    im only looking to send small and light objects, majority are flat.
    i want a company that i can integrate into my website directly and will give my customers quotes based on location.
    Is anyone using a service that provides small parcel options like this?
    thank you very much
    it would be ideal they come and collect from my location however i can drop off if i have to. located 5kms from Melbourne airport.
    i have looked into sendle (apparently have bad reviews)
    aus post want nearly $9 to send from melb cbd to brisbane cbd. For my smallest size.

    Depending one where your customers are you probably won’t do better than Auspost. Sendle is a courier broker and no worse or better than other brokers – you don’t get to pick the courier and they may send your parcel with couriers that have really bad reviews, especially if you post to rural areas.

    I get $7.52 to Brisbane from Melb, sign up to mypost,

    Also you say they are flat parcels, can they go as a large letter which is $2 something (??) thats without tracking, but I notice they now offer tracked large letters for somewhere around $5 (something).

    Once you gain traction and volume, you may be able to setup a contract with StarTrack courier.
