Basic Shipping | Zoom2u Shipping Quotes

Zoom2u is an on-demand, same-day express courier‎ in Australia that delivers in major metro areas such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth. By offering faster fulfillment, you're able to improve the experience your customers have with your brand, as well as differentiate yourself from your competitors.

Providing real-time shipping quotes with Zoom2u is available only to clients who ship from Australia. Before setting up Zoom2u, you'll need to set up your shipping origin and create a shipping zone in your Shipping Setup.


How it Works

Merchants first register with Zoom2u, either online or through the Zoom2u app. Once registered, they then enter the type of delivery service they need, and the pickup and dropoff locations.

Zoom2u will then provide a live tracking URL and the vetted courier's contact information while they deliver the parcel.

Delivery Areas

Zoom2u pick up areas are focused around the central business district (CBD) of major metro areas and surrounding suburbs - but can deliver to most major Australian metro areas. Check below for more information on the courier delivery services available in each area:
