    For the system to work properly it’s essential to add accurate weights and dimensions to the products on your

    website. If no weights and dimensions have been entered it will automatically use the default settings, which

    could undercharge/overcharge your customer.

     

    Product Weight

    Product Dimensions

    Each product needs accurate dimensions, fine tuning your dimensions will reduce wasted space therefore

    reducing your volumetric weight. Carriers will either charge on the actual weight of the product or the

    volumetric weight, which ever is greater.

     

    Packaging Buffer

    The packaging buffer is to help you plan for protective cushioning around the product. For example: You may

    wish to add 25% more volume to a product that is fragile. For items that are more robust you may only add 5%

    PACKAGE INFORMATION

     

    To obtain accurate shipping quotes, World Options require accurate product weight and dimensions. Quotes are returned based on total cart weight and total cart volume.

     

    If you have multiple items that can be shipped in the same package e.g. Shirt and cufflinks, the plug-ins will identify the correct box size based on volume. If by chance you exceed your max dimensions of all you boxes a second package will be created, the shipment will then become a multi piece shipment. The max number of pieces in one shipment is 20 boxes.

     

    Identify and measure your five most used boxes and list in ascending order.

    PRODUCT SETTINGS

     

    For the system to work properly it’s essential to add accurate weights and dimensions to the products on your

    website. If no weights and dimensions have been entered it will automatically use the default settings, which

    could undercharge/overcharge your customer.

     

    Product Weight

    Each product needs to have an accurate weight.

     

    Product Dimensions

    Each product needs accurate dimensions, fine tuning your dimensions will reduce wasted space therefore

    reducing your volumetric weight. Carriers will either charge on the actual weight of the product or the

    volumetric weight, which ever is greater.

     

    Packaging Buffer

    The packaging buffer is to help you plan for protective cushioning around the product. For example: You may

    wish to add 25% more volume to a product that is fragile. For items that are more robust you may only add 5%

     

    Packing Type

    Single - This item will ship in its own box.

    Shared - This item can share a box with another item in the cart.
