Troubleshooting Tips for AU Post MyPost Integration

Here are some common issues, potential causes, and troubleshooting tips.

Issue

How to troubleshoot or resolve

ERROR: The unit Value must be at least 1

This error means the customs declaration item value for one of the items is less than $1.

To resolve this error, make sure that the Item Value in the customs description is set to at least $1.

ERROR: The product ID is not available.

This error can refer to several issues including, but not limited to:

  • Using a product that is not available to the destination Country selected

  • Invalid name entered

  • incorrect/invalid email address given

  • incorrect/invalid mobile phone number given

The first issue may occur if a merchant creates a label with Economy Air service from AU to Canada. Economy Air service is currently suspended to Canada and USA so you may need to select a different service if needing to send to these destinations.
