UPS shipping Help

Some time ago we set up the ecart and need to review the configuration. I am not clear from the tags (file attached) if the rate is configured as ONE package for entire order, or individual packages, with dimensions stated.

My problem is that not always do we need one package per item, some items are very small and some are large.

Is there a way to not use dimensions?

I really appreciate your help.

this is set to use one package for the entire order.

The UPS Rate request requires the dimensions, it will fail if you dont pass packaging dimensions.

with different size products you would be better setting it to use a package for each item, and add the product dimensions through the add to cart buttons.

create new cart columns for width height and length, and in the add to cart buttons, set these for the individual products, then on the confirm page, double click the UPS Shipping server behavior to edit it, and bind the dimensions to the new cart columns.

you can edit how the packages are calculated when you change the dimensions in the UPS Server behavior.
