If you are using weight tiers for shipping rates, you must have item weights set for each item in your shopping cart platform in order for the rules to work properly.
If you have items or boxes larger than 11” on any side, your items may need to be calculated with dimensional weight to get accurate quotes. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for options.
