UPS Shipping questions

How do we install dimensions and weight for UPS? Do you have an instructional sheet?

Thank you

When yuo insert or update a product, the Additional Settings tab will allow you to enter the eight for that prodyct.


the box size is set in the webassist/plugins/shopping_cart/calculate_shipping.php page:

php:
if ($WAGLOBAL_Country == "US")  {

      $EndUnits = "lbs";
      $BoxUnits = "in";
      $BoxSize = "6";
    } else  {
      $EndUnits = "kgs";
      $BoxUnits = "cm";
      $BoxSize = "15";
    }




for US it will be set to 6 x 6 x 6, you can change that by changing the $BoxSize value.

Adding dimensions to the shipping module in Power Store

I am sorry, but your answer does not make sense. I need to add the dimensions to the shipping module for UPS. They want both weight and dimensions. There is only a box for the weight. Where do I add the dimensions?
I do not understand what you mean when you list webassist/plugins.

Thank you

in power store, the dimensions can not be set on product basis.

the dimensions are set in the code to be 6 x 6 x 6.

those dimensions willl be used for all packages, it is not supported to use a product based dimension for the package.

if you want to change it to use a different dimension, you will need to edit the $BoxSize variable in the webassist/plugins/shopping_cart/calculate_shipping.php page

Reply to UPS Shipping

Hi Jason, first, where are the dimension options in the shipping module? We only see an area for weight.

Second, our client has wine barrel furniture and accessories and per UPS, the dimensions must be entered when shipping to get an accurate rate.

If this is going to be a problem we want to talk to someone. Our client has been waiting a long time to start using this cart.

the shipping module does not have a place to enter package dimensions.


the way that shipping works is to look at the dimensions that are passed first, it will determine the cost for the minimum dimensional weight for that package size.

It will then look at the weight that is passed and determine the cost for shipping that weight.

whichever is greater, is the shipping rate that will be used.

if you are going to be shipping larger packages, rather than entering the actual weight of the item in the admin panel, enter the dimensional weight for the package size.

if you know the package size will be 12 inches x 12 inches x 12 inches, you calculate the dimensional weight as:
cubic size / 166

or:
12 x 12 x 12 = 1,728 (cubic size)

1,728 / 166 = 10.40

so the dimensional weight for the package is 10.40

enter this as the weight for the item.

see the following page on UPS for details about dimensional weight
oversize.html

shipping problems

Hi Jason:

Thank you for your time and expertise, but the USP shipping for weight and dimensions is still not working. I have an alternative:

How about charging 15% of the price for shipping. Is this possible?

I appreciate your tech help.This client (Bella Barrel) is really getting uptight and I need to get this up as soon as possible.

Thank you very much.

when inserting or updating a product, go to the additional settings tab.

here you can set Shipping / handling change on an item by item basis, you can add the cost to ship that item here.

shipping settings

We went to the settings, then the shipping tab, could not find the additional settings tab:

"when inserting or updating a product, go to the additional settings tab." Please tell me where this is located.

Thank you.

This on the product insert or update page.

It is not in the settings, it is in page for Inserting a New Product or updating an existing one.
