    Here is how I got it working. From the main admin menu select Configuration>Shipping/Packaging Set Country of Origin to United Kingdom Set Postal Code to your postal code set Enter the Maximum Package Weight you will ship to the maximum weight you will send (I set mine to 50000 grams) Set Package Tare weight. to your average packaging weight (This is the weight of the actual box or packaging you use to send your item. Therefore if your item weighs 100grams and the box you send it in weighs 100grams then it will automatically add the weight of the packaging onto your item weight.) Set Larger packages - percentage increase. (I set this to 0 as I found out that with larger weights it was adding on a percentage) Also I found a way to stop the rounding up of weights. In the database there is a table called products and within this table there is a field called products_weight which has length values set to 5,2 which means it will only allow 5 digit numbers with 2 decimal places. So for example if you entered 1000 it would round it down to 999.99 or if you set it to 0.045 it would round it up to 0.04. By changing this value to 8,3 it will allow you to enter weights as either grams e.g 1Kg would be 1000 grams or as Kilograms e.g 60 grams is 0.060 kg. Just remember that whatever units you use as your product weight must be reflected in the shipping table. I hope this makes sense.
