Question to shipping/packaging in admin

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

in admin/configuration/shipping-packaging is the feature "Larger packages - percentage increase". What does here "Larger" mean? Larger to what? And what is the basis to "percentage increase"? Increase to what?

 

Many thanks for your answer in advance.

Larger = greater shipping weight, and it is percentage increase in product tare weight (the weight of the box in which the product is shipped).

 

Hth,

Thanks Matt.

 

But what do you mean by "greater shipping weight". Is "great" 10 or 50 or 100 kg? Or is it related to "Enter the maximum package weight you will ship"? So it comes into action if a package is above the maximum weight? But it says "...you will ship". So you are NOT going to ship heavier packages. By the way: What would happen if you nevertheless have a heavier product and the customer tries to buy it? Is then the ordering process stopped with a message that she/he can NOT buy this product?

 

It would be nice if I could get this cleared by you or someone.

 

Thanks in advance.

It works like this: (assuming percent increase is set to 10%)

 

If tare weight is equal to or greater than 10% of item weight,

shipping weight = item weight + tare weight.

 

If tare weight is less than 10% of item weight,

shipping weight = item weight + 10% of item weight
