Manifesting

Australia Post requires you to manifest your shipments before you deliver them to your pickup driver or you drop them off for shipping. There are two methods to do this:

  1. One by one
  2. In Bulk

If you are a high volume shipper it is recommended you manifest in bulk.

One by one

When creating a Australia Post Shipment make sure that you do NOT select the special service called Manifest In Bulk, and just create the shipment normally. The shipment will be manifested instantly.

In Bulk

If you will be manifesting in bulk you first need to create a new custom field on the Zenkraft Shipment record. Please make it a checkbox field and name it Manifested.

When creating a Australia Post Shipment make sure that you DO select the special service called Manifest In Bulk. This means you will need to use the manifesting button on the preference to manifest these at the end of the day.

Once you are ready to manifest your shipments at the end of the day you need to go the the Australia Post Shipping Preference, and then click on the Manifest button.

The first time you get to this page, please set it up as you see in the screen below, and click on the save button.

Then you can click on the Get Manifest button to generate the manifest, and print it out.

If you have received an error such as "The manifest is taking a long time to generate please try again later.", if you wait for a few minutes and click on the "View Old Manifests" button at the bottom of the page you will then get the list of generated manifests that you are then able to manifest.
