mugitty Posted August 8, 2003 Share Posted August 8, 2003 I stand corrected on my previous comment that the "Delete" function doesn't work. It seems that if I try to delete the first package that is selected when you first enter the packaging screen, that it will not delete that package, but if you select another package and then try to delete, it works fine. Revisiting the packaging weight issue: For stores that have a wide variety of products in just as wide a variety of sizes, it would be very helpful if the native osC function for adding packaging weight as a % increase over product weight could be used within this module. Consider this scenario- I have set the default dimensions on all products at 6x6x6, but I have products that are 1x1/2x1/2 all the way up to 24x15x15. Unless I go into my products and edit the dimensions for each to their actual size, and create a couple of dozen (minimum) different packages in shipping, I could be faced with shipping (2) 1x1/2x1/2 screws in a 12x6x6 box. With the native osC % increase function, I am able to determine a value for packaging weight that isn't dependant on individually specifying the size of each item in the catalog and an appropriate container. I appreciate the value of the packaging algorithm if you are selling and shipping only CDs for instance, but for extremely varied products, it would be nice if one could use a % increase for packaging weight with no concern to package size unless the product fell into the oversized package category (over 84" length + girth), which could be accomodated by selecting "Ship in own box" in most cases. Thoughts, anyone? Quote ... if you want to REALLY see something that doesn't set up right out of the box without some tweaking, try being a Foster Parent!
