The shipping module you're using just shows the word 'lbs' at checkout, but it's meaningless.

 

You can get rid of the word 'lbs'. ...where to look may depend on which module but e.g.

 

in includes\languages\english\modules\shipping\zones.php(16):

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_UNITS', 'lb(s)');

 

When the calculation is not what you expected, check

admin-->configuration-->shipping and packaging-->tare weight

 

The tare weight will be added to your orders to allow for packaging weight. You can set it to zero though.

I just wanted to say this worked a treat, it's a problem I've been trying to solve for a while so thanks!

I may have spoken too soon, I changed lbs to grams in;

 

SITE/includes/modules/shipping/mzmt.php

 

Changing it in zones didn't appear to work, I downloaded the entire includes folder and used dreamweaver to search through it for instances of 'lbs' and that was the only other one

 

Now it correctly shows grams at http://knowyourproduct.net/punk-shop/checkout_shipping.php

 

But when you hit continue I get this error -

 

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/kyp/public_html/punk-shop/includes/modules/shipping/mzmt.php:409) in /home/kyp/public_html/punk-shop/includes/functions/general.php on line 33

 

So I appear to have broken my shop! I did try changing the file back but that didn't fix it.

 

I'm using the multizone geozone thing
