The "Add to Weight" in Package Setup allows you to account for any additional weight that your box and/or packaging will add to a shipment to avoid insufficient postage issues.
Update/Edit Add to Weight
- Go to SETTINGS in the top right corner.
Then select PACKAGE SETUP.
- Click on the Edit icon to the right of your custom package to make changes.
- Enter the "Add to weight" for that specific package. This option adds a specified weight to the shipment weight when the associated package is selected. To be clear, this an additional, non-editable weight that will be added to the shipment weight.
In this example, the package box weighs 5 oz before the product is in it.
Click Save and you are set!
Every time you select this box for shipping, we will include the added weight to whatever the shipment weight is for the rate quote.
