|Order Fulfilment by App

DEFAULT PRODUCT DIMENSIONS
Default Product Dimensions
Default product dimensions (centimetres) refers to your average sized product. This size will be used as a default if no size product size is specified on your product. Orders that use default dimensions won't automatically book, they will need to be fulfilled in the app or exported to CSV to import into Ship Manager. Quotes at cart won't be accurate but will be close if your dimensions are generally around the same size.
|Default Product Weight
|Default product weight (kilograms) refers to the weight of your average product. This weight will be used as a default if no product weight is specified on your product. Orders that use default weights won't automatically book, they will need to be fulfilled in the app or exported to CSV to import into Ship Manager. Without weights or dimensions your shipping prices will be a rough estimate, this is a perfect option to get started however it will be best to add at least the weights to get more accurate shipping.
In most cases this will be 'Any Non Document'. 'Any Document' refers to a flat wallet used for sending documents only.
|If available offers DDP and DAP shipments
PACKAGE BOX DIMENSIONS
To obtain accurate shipping quotes, World Options require accurate carton sizes. Quotes are returned based on total cart weight and auto selected cart size. If your carton sizes are incorrect so will be the price of your shipping.
If you have multiple items that can be shipped in the same package e.g Shirt and cufflinks, the plugins will identify the correct box size based on volume. If by chance you exceed your max dimensions of all your boxes a second package will be created, the shipment will then become a multi-piece shipment.
Identify and measure your internal dimensions of your shipping boxes and list your max weight in each.
|Name of the box sizes that will be familiar to you.
|Add the length of the internal dimensions of the box
|Add the width of the internal dimensions of the box
|Add the height of the internal dimensions of the box
