    • Length/Width/Height: some carrier services and rates require dimensions. Learn how to measure your packages.

    • Add to Weight: optional. This field is for the weight that will be added, in addition to package weight, such as the weight that could be added by your packaging materials (bubble wrap, wrapping paper).

    • Override Weight: optional. This field sets the overall weight of the package. This is the non-editable weight that will be assigned as the shipment weight.

    • Notes: optional. Will be displayed on the package set up page under the "Notes" heading.

  4. Select Save once you finish configuring the package settings.
