Products with different gross and net weight
Now we are getting to some more advanced configurations.
This product works in the following scenario: The product has certain net weight – 5 kg and together with it’s packaging it makes gross weight 5.5 kg. This weight will be used for shipping purposes so the shipping company will give you the right shipping price for the package. But you want the customer to see PPU price calculated for the weight without packaging.
Example of intended use:
Selling products with their package – the gross weight will be used for calculating shipping.
Instructions on how to do this:
- You will set the price (20USD) as in basic usage case.
- Then you will enter gross weight 5.5 kg into the usual field in Product settings -> Shipping —Weight.
- Then you will enter net weight 5 kg in Product settings -> PPU PRO — Custom number of units
And that’s it. It will then make PPU price 20USD / 5 kg = 4USD /kg
