Setting up multiple boxes and custom weights and Satchels

Boxes can be set up based on a combination of your courier rates, the size of what you ship and/or the weight of what you ship. You can create boxes for Flat Rates, Dead Weights, Standard boxes Satchels or commonly used boxes. ShipIT makes it easy to accommodate they different  ways you ship. 


1) Setting up Multiple box sizes and custom weights

If you have many box sizes and get charged based on customs weights then we suggest you keep one standard box and manually update the size of the box for every order. Or alternatively you can create a box for each sized box. 

2) Setting up Satchels

You can also set up satchels within boxes. To define a satchel when setting up a box make sure the height is set to 0.

Only you know the best set up based on the rates provided by your courier company.  Please double check and make sure your boxes are aligned with the rates your courier is offering you. While we love to help you get set up we will not take any responsibility for charges received from the courier company due to incorrect box set up.
