Kilos not Ponds for weight


Recommended Posts



Can someone please tell me how to set the default unit for weight to Kilos or Grams, I can't find where to do it?


I'm using the Table Rate shipping module.

in zones.php




change to:


define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_UNITS', 'kg'); //for kilograms


define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_UNITS', 'g'); //for gram


Your items don't care what number you put in for a "weigh" as it is just a number. Put in "10" would display as 10kg in zone based shipping.


Warnning: OTHER shipping moduals assume this is in pounds!!!!! Regarless of displayed unit.

Thankyou for your time but I already new that, I'm using Table rate not zones so editing zones.php dosen't help me.


I will carry on converting all my weights manually, unless anyone else has any ideas.
