7-Eleven ParcelMate

Sending a parcel (outbound)
Plus sign Minus sign

Head to the ParcelMate packaging bay and tap anywhere on the tablet screen to start sending your parcel. Here you will be able to complete the entire process, including payment - so no need to go to the counter!

Once you have completed payment a label will print which contains all of your delivery information and you will need to affix this to your parcel that is packaged in a 7-Eleven ParcelMate satchel or box. Then you simply head to the 7-Eleven ParcelMate locker to lodge it.

A few handy tips:                                                                       

1.       You will need to enter your details (as the sender) and the recipient’s details to complete the process, so don’t forget to bring the information with you

2.       Payment must be electronic (we accept credit card, debit card, Apple pay, or Google pay, but not cash)

3.       After payment, you will receive an email containing your invoice and parcel tracking number. Please keep this for your records and in case you want to track delivery

You can select from a satchel or box; both available in sizing of Regular (Recommended 1kg), Large (Recommended 3kg) and Super (Recommended 5kg). These can be used to send via either Standard or Express services that are from store to door. The Standard service is also used for our ParcelMate’s Rates service which is sending from a ParcelMate 7-Eleven store to another ParcelMate 7-Eleven store for the recipient to collect from the store., The packaging is the same for all. 

The label you create will highlight your chosen service be that Standard or Express, so if you want express make sure you select this when completing your purchase on the digital screen in-store.

Remember you don’t need to weigh your parcel if it fits, we sent it!

At this stage, 7-Eleven ParcelMate is a domestic service only so you can’t use this service to send parcels outside of Australia.

Plus sign Minus sign

You don’t need to weigh your parcel to use our service and you won’t be charged for extra weight. The weights indicated on the packaging are a guide for what might fit but as long as your item fits neatly in the package and it can be completely sealed, then it’s good to send!

We can’t accept items weighing 25kg or more.

Plus sign Minus sign

No, you need to use the 7-Eleven ParcelMate packaging but when you buy our service it includes the packaging as well!

Plus sign Minus sign

At this stage, only the satchels and boxes themselves are available at the store. So (if you need to) please make sure your item is pre-prepared to protect it for transport.

Our ParcelMate boxes have double-sided tape attached to them which enables you to create the box and securely close all opening.

Our indicative Standard delivery timeframe is within 2-7 business days for all locations except where a parcel is being sent from or to non-capital cities within WA, Northern Territory, Tasmania, or North Queensland. In these instances, the indicative delivery time is up to 13 business days.

The delivery timeframes for Express delivery of parcels lodged in a parcel locker before 12pm on a business day are, the next business day if sent to and from Australian capital cities, and within 3 business days if sent to or from any other locations, except remote locations, which may be up to 10 business days. 

Our Standard delivery timeframe is an indicative guide only, we do not offer guaranteed Standard delivery transit times.  See clause 10 of our full Terms of Use for service conditions, service exclusions and the list of capital cities and remote locations.

7-Eleven ParcelMate’s Rates is our BEST VALUE product!

Using a Regular, Large or Super-sized satchel or box, you can send a parcel for someone to collect at another 7-Eleven store with a ParcelMate locker.  This is all for a great value price starting at $10

Under the base 7-Eleven ParcelMate service you are able to send goods up to $500 in value and should your item be lost or damaged, you may be entitled to claim the value of the goods. If you intend to send something valued above $500 you can purchase our ‘Optional Extra’ service (at a cost of $5.00) which will entitle you to send goods valued at up to $1500.  If you purchase the optional extra and your item is lost or damaged in transit, you may be entitled to claim up to $1,500.

To make a claim, please contact the Help Desk on 1300 711 720. Once your claim has been verified, you will be referred to FreightSafe who will manage the claim process.

Some examples of goods that are prohibited are those that are valued (or have a replacement value) at, or above $500, have sentimental value, are bullion, cash, gold, jewellery or precious gems, are legal or other important documents, are fragile (as the Services are not fit for this purpose), or must arrive at their destination by a specific time or date (noting the Express service supplied subject to certain terms).
