To set up shipping cost calculation through Australia Post real-time shipping calculator, follow these steps:

1. If you haven't yet done so, provide your own company address in the 'General settings->Company options' section. Make sure you provide this address correctly - it will be submitted to the real-time shipping calculator as the origin address for all shipments from your store and thus will affect the shipping rates.

2. Enable your store to use the real-time shipping calculator provided by Australia Post:

a. In your store's Admin area, go to the 'General settings->Shipping options' section.
b. On the 'General settings->Shipping options' page, select the check box 'Enable real-time shipping calculation'. Unselect the check box 'Use Intershipper calculation service'.

3. Adjust Australia Post options:

a. Go to the 'Shipping methods' section of your store's Admin area (Settings menu->Shipping methods).
b. Find Australia Post in the list of real-time shipping methods and click the Options >> link opposite it. A dialog box with Australia Post options opens.

c. Adjust the options according to your preferences.
d. Click the Apply button.

That is all. Now you can test whether your store can receive real-time shipping rates correctly. For details, see X-Cart:Testing Your Store's Ability to Receive Real-time Shipping Rates page.
