What is Add to Weight in the Package Setup?

Created:   |   Updated:

This feature allows you to account for any additional weight that your box and/or packaging will add to a shipment to avoid insufficient postage issues.

  1. It is accessed in PACKAGE SETUP under the Shipment Settings column of the SETTINGS page.

  2. This option adds a specified weight to the shipment weight when the associated package is selected. To update a package, click +Add New.

  3. To be clear, this an additional, non-editable weight that will be added to the shipment weight. For example, if the package box weighed 4 oz before you put a product in it, you would set the Add to Weight to 4 oz.

    Every time you select this box for shipping, we will include the added weight to whatever the shipment weight is for the rate quote.
