  • Adding a fixed weight per order

    Does any know if there is a way to add a fixed weight per order? My client has some items that are in glass (like salad dressings, BBQ sauces, etc), and I have each items individual weight specified. However, when shipping, there is additional weight added due to packing material, etc.

    Of course weight determines the shipping rate we get back from USPS/UPS.

    I guess I could go in and increase the individual weights for each item, but I was hoping I could simply add, say 1/2 pound per box or per order.

    Settings> Shipping Methods > Markup

    This may only allow you to add a $ amount or percent of cost, but at least you would not have to go into all of your products.

    You can try to call Tech Support to see if they have any other ideas.

          If it is worth it to you, I would make the suggestion. :)

          We would have no use for it, but others might.

            We would use it if it was possible. I've always thought it would be extremely helpful and we'd have even more accuracy with shipping weights.

              I want it

              I would use it. The issue for me is weight accuracy for determining if a product can ship USPS first class mail which is significantly less than Priority. Adding a $ amount per order is not a good solution because it does not account for the correct shipping weight thus assuming an order is light enough to qualify for first class when many orders would not.

              Or can a product be created and automatically added to orders to increase the weight? It would be a FREE product and have a weight of say .3 pounds. Is there a way to program the cart to invisibly add this to an order so the customer does not see it?
