Do you want accurate live shipping rates in Magento based on how you actually pack your products, not just the weight of the cart?
Our Dimensional Shipping extension is an intelligent solution to this problem for FedEx, UPS and USPS users. It lets you define the dimensions of your products, the dimensions of your boxes and rules for how you package different combinations of products together.
When a customer checks out, Dimensional Shipping works out how the products will be packed based on your rules and calculates the dimensional weight value of the package(s), as well as the actual weight. By sending both values, you give your shipping carrier a better idea of the dimensions and weight of your shipment. In return you receive more accurate live rates for your store.
Please note: This extension is only compatible with UPS, FedEx, and USPS, plus some Freight Carriers - contact us if unsure of compatibility
