Is anyone familiar with WooCommerce? More specifically the USPS (united States Postal Service) shipping plug-in?
My client is a clothing store that sells mostly t-shirts. The plug-in refuses to work unless items have both weight and dimensions specified. However t-shirts don’t really have dimensions because they can be folded any which way.
Looking in the FAQ it states the following:
Each order is automatically divided into packages of your defined box weight or less. The plugin will calculate how many packages need to be sent, calculate the cost of shipping each package and display the total cost to the customer on the cart and checkout.
Have you tried to just put in the box dimensions for one t-shirt and box?
I’m sorry, but that doesn’t apply. The plug-in wants each item to have a defined weight and dimension, not the dimensions of a box. It automatically tells you what boxes they fit in when calculated. We can’t decide what box the customer gets when the API specifically tells them what mode of shipping they’re paying for.
All I’m trying to find out is how to apply dimensions to something that doesn’t really have dimensions such as clothing since it can be folded in almost any way.
A t-shirt weighs roughly 6oz, however what do I put for dimensions???
