shipping weight can't be zero

an transaction error message when clicking on the express checkout and clicking on the checkout button on the bottom of the form on the checkout page I receive a shipping error message saying something about the shipping weight can't be zero when there is .01 weight in the cart. Do you know what it is I'm doing wrong? Is it the codes I got from paypal maybe I entered the wrong codes??

Thanks guys

Most of the shipping providers require that the weight be at least 1 pound. You con force a total weight of under a pound to be 1 pound by editing the line that passes the weight.


$Shipping_PackageArray[$Shipping_PackageIndex]["PackageWeight"] = "".WA_eCart_FormatNumber($<your cart name>->TotalColumn('TotalWeight'), true, 1)  ."";


$Shipping_PackageArray[$Shipping_PackageIndex]["PackageWeight"] = "".WA_eCart_FormatNumber((<your cart name>->TotalColumn('TotalWeight') >= 1)?$<your cart name>>TotalColumn('TotalWeight'):1, true, 1)  ."";

where <your cart name> is the name of your cart object.
