Providing the default Product Dimensions and Weight in StorePep is done when the Store Owner configures his Store with StorePep.

Why default Dimensions andWeight?  

The answer is simple. Not all online store platforms provide the option of giving both the weight and dimensions of the product. The Woocommerce platform allows the owner to give a specific weight and dimensions for each product. The Shopify and Magento platforms allow giving only the weight of the product and not the dimensions. So, for easiness in the calculation of the Shipping Rates, an option for giving the default weight and dimensions for the orders is provided in the StorePep account.

How to provide the default dimensions andweight?

As mentioned above, the default product dimensions and weight is given while the Store Owner configures his store with StorePep.

The Store Owner has to select the platform which he is using in his store and configure his Store with StorePep.

Now, the Store Owner has to configure his store by giving all the details including the Consumer Key and Secret.

After the Store has been configured, go to “Other details” and you can find the space to give the default weight and dimensions.

These details are required to calculate the cost of the shipping. So, whenever the cost of shipping is to be calculated and the weight and dimensions of the product are not given, then these values are used as the weight and dimension of the product.

For a product whose weight and the dimensions are not specified by the Store Owner and for the same product, if the weight and dimensions are specified, the cost of shipping will be different.

If the weight and dimensions are not specified, then the default weight and dimensions given in the StorePep account will be used and Rates and Label will be generated.

Consider the product when the weight and dimensions are given;

The Rates in this condition is given below.

Now, consider the same product when the weight and the dimensions are not given. So, the default weight and dimensions given in the StorePep account will be taken.

The Rates in this condition is shown below.
