Re: [RELEASED] Dimension and Weight Based Shipping (Weight3D

No problem. The handling fee of a container is ignored if any of the container specification is missing (e.g. length, width, height and weight).

Re: [RELEASED] Dimension and Weight Based Shipping (Weight3D

Hi Faustine,

Yes, you could use the module without dimensions. It will default to weight based shipping based on the price table you defined for each delivery service and zone.

Re: Product Dimensions

@codemunky, if I'm not mistaken, none of the modules (USPS, UPS, FedEx, RoyalMail, etc) actually uses product dimensions to determine shipping. They typically just use the combined weight of cart items to infer how many parcels are needed and for how much. This shouldn't be surprising since there is...
