  • Watch out, if you plan to use TNT for live rates at checkout, the Starshipit plugin as of 28/5/24 does not include a number iof key surcharges: The remote area delivery charge of $32.50 applies to a massive number of post codes in Australia. The over size and overweight surcharges add up very quickly to over $80-$210 per item for our larger items.  The fuel surcharge should be a no-brainer especially given the variation on this charge more recently.

    Also the validation of addresses as residential or commercial should be included as this make a massive difference with TNT- the Google Maps API to do this has been available for Australia for some time. 

    Please make this a priority!
