How MyPost Business saves The Scent Lab on sending
The Scent Lab started as a bet between housemates about how much it costs to make a premium scented candle. Adam Kerrins turned that wager into a hugely successful business that now uses MyPost Business to send candles, wax melts and bath products to every corner of Australia.1
Video: The Australia Post logo sits in the bottom right corner. Outside a shop stocked with colourful goods, a bearded man helps an Australia Post driver load parcels into her van. He is interviewed near long shelves of candles. Text: "Adam Kerrins, The Scent Lab." On a laptop, Adam uses the Shopify website. He prints a document.
Audio: Adam: So, my name's Adam. I am the owner of The Scent Lab. MyPost Business not only saves us time. I would estimate that it saves us at least an hour every single day through the Shopify integration and the way that it works. Everything just works really well together. But it saves us money as well.

Audio: Adam: Because of the volume that we do, we are Band 5, which is a substantial discount, which is massive, considering postage is probably our third-highest cost as a business, and, yeah, that kind of saving for a small local business is phenomenal.
Video: White text on a red screen changes from "Delivering for Business," to, "Delivering for Australia." Underneath, text reads, "Savings are based on how many qualifying parcels you send over specific periods. To learn more and for terms and conditions, visit auspost.com.au/mypost-business." The words "MyPost Business" sit to the right of a magnifying glass logo. The Australia Post logo appears above.
