Help please?!?

Have a shopify website set up but need help figuring out the best way to ship products. The main problem is they vary in size, some are bulky. We are looking for an app that calculates shipping live but preferably by dimensions rather than just weight.

We really have no idea how shipping works in general, in regards to who to use, do we need accounts anything. We have been just manually getting a quote from Fastway and doing it that way but that is not practical with a website.

Any info much appreciated

Take a look at sendle,  it integrates really well with shopify. It uses both Fastway and Couriers Please networks.  

We have found,  no matter what shipping network you use,  someone will always complain. Whether it be Australia Post or any courier company at all,  someone has always had a bad experience and thinks you should use a different (aka better) service.  

We have set up shipping in shopify based on weight and state,  however all our products have been listed at their cubic volume weight,  rather than their weight in kilos. This helps sort bulky goods from simple to ship items.  

Hope that helps
