Packaging Rule


In an effort to streamline our shipping volume, it would be very helpful to be able to establish rules to allow certain items/quantities to be shipped in pre-determined packages, based on packages established in the Package Setup in Shipment Settings. It seems that most of the "IF" criteria is already configured in RULES, but the "THEN" criteria for Package Name needs to be added, linking to the various package names saved in Package Setup.

Hi Gina,

Thank you for posting to our forums!

We have a solution that should work for the situation you described.  You can create a Shipping Rule to apply a Saved Carrier Selection which includes packaging.  

First, set up your Saved Selection(s):  How to: Save my Carrier Selections for future shipments

Then, create a ShippingRule that uses your Saved Carrier Selection:  How to: Create a Shipping Rule

You can see Saved Carrier Selection is listed in the available THEN actions:

What Shipping Rules are available for set-up?

If you need further information about Shipping Rules, I recommend taking a look at this article from our Knowledge Base:  FAQs: Shipping Rules / Mapping

Since you are currently on a paid plan, you can use the links at the top of the app to contact us with any further questions.  Thanks!
