In some circumstances you may wish to set up shipping rates that are user-defined (i.e by you) that work based on the box dimensions. For instance you might wish to have a rule that says Box 5x5x5 is $10 per box, Box 10x12x12 is $15 per box. And then depending on what the items are in the cart it will calculate which box to use and the shipping rate.
ShipperHQ supports this. We give a quick run down on setup here.
- Switch on Dimensional Shipping in
2. Under Carrier Rule Settings enable Boxes
Dimensional Rule Setup
You will need to set up your Dimensional Rules for your website. This is covered in a separate section.
- Create a user-defined carrier
- Under Rules you will need to add a new Carrier Rule to basically say along the lines of when Box A is in the cart (under advanced conditions) and Zone is B then shipping price for Shipping Method C is $x. You can optionally make this price per box
