Best of Rules: Assign weights to my orders

Package weight is an important factor in shipping-it frequently determines how much you'll be charged for postage! Make saving money easy by assigning a shipping rule to automatically cover the weight of your most shipped items.

Our Estimated Weight Rule automatically sets Order weights for shipping based on weights you've entered previously. Learn more.

You can still easily review and edit the item or order to make sure you're happy with the estimates before you ship. 

Using a Shipping Rule to estimate your order weights is a wonderful time saving tool if you do not have weights set up in your store and you don't currently have a scale integrated. No more entering weights one-by-one. Just set this rule and spend even less time shipping:
