Different boxes weight


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! First sorry my english is not the best, thanks.

I have my site running for a few years now but there is that one question that keeps bugging me.


I sell records and cd's so mailer for my cd weight (15-20 grams) and i have those mailer for the big LP (200 grams)

The problem is that in "package tare weight " under shipping/packaging i had to put the lowest value which is (0.05Grams) and now everytime that i sell a LP it add only the weight of the small mailer and this result in me losing money in shipping.


So my quesiton is - does someone have a better way to deal with "package tare weight" and what determines which ones a small/medium package or a large package.


My head is about to explode

Don't use the tare weight..........put the actual weight (including packaging) into the product weight field during the product creation process.

Yeah but what if someone order more than 1 item. The box itself is almost as heavy as the LP (vinyl disk).


IE: if i have 4 lp of 300gr each and the box weight 250 it would mean normally a total weight of 1450gr

with your suggestion it would means a total weight of 2200gr.


Thanks Dunweb for your suggestion, if you or someone else have any other suggestion on how to resolve this that would be appreciated.
