Our WooCommerce EasyPost shipping plugin provides three methods for parcel packaging. They are:

  • Pack Items Individually: In this option, each item in the cart is packed separately. The total shipping cost is calculated by adding the shipping cost for each item. This option is selected by default.

For example, the shipping cost of item X is $10. If the customer adds two quantities of item X to the cart, the total shipping cost is $10 x 2, which is $20.

  • Pack items based on weight: Enter maximum weight limit for packages. In this option, the weight of all the cart items is summed up and items are packed with a maximum weight limit in the box(es) and passed to the API to get rates.
  • Pack into boxes with weight and dimensions: If packing items individually does not suit your business, then you can define custom box sizes under the Box Dimensions section. All the cart items are packed into custom boxes defined in Box Dimensions settings. The best fit box is automatically chosen from the defined boxes. This is the recommended option.

“12*12*5.5” and “12.25* 12.25*6”
