Shipping Table adds 2 dollars, why?


Recommended Posts

I've figured much out about the shipping table module, but I can't see any reason why the shipping charge is 2 dollars more than the table should assign it for a given weight. I've checked everywhere, the first suspect was the handling charge, but I've verified a number of times that the handling charge is zero.


I just don't see any reason for this to be happening. I realize I could just lower the shipping table's charges by 2 dollars, but I'd rather not resort to such a lame fix.


Anybody know how to fix this?

There is a tare (container) weight that gets added to every shipment. Configured at Admin > Configure > Shipping/Packaging > Package Tare Weight

You know.... I hate when I don't figure stuff like that out. But I'm glad it was a simple answer.


Thank you, that was indeed the problem.
