ShippingEasy has the option to create a Shipping Rule that will automatically estimate your order weight based on your previous shipments. Learn more about Shipping Rules.
We have a database that stores the last recorded weight for each product SKU in your SHIPMENT HISTORY. Orders, placed after this shipping rule is created, will be run through this database and matched to orders in your SHIPMENT HISTORY with the same product SKUs. Using the most recent order, we'll assign the weight that you specified on that previous order to this new order.
No, our database updates daily at 2am CT. So, after our database has had a chance to update overnight, orders that are processed the next day will be assigned an estimated weight based on updates you make to product SKU weights today.
No, our database will only store product weights for 30 days. If you have not shipped a particular product SKU in the last 30 days then there is not an active record within our database. You will need to manually assign the weight to this order, and then future orders with this product will be assigned an estimated weight automatically.
