USPS not adding Weight Properly

Recommended Posts

I realize that ounces are not supported so we have to use decimals.

 

Lets say I have two items. One weighs 0.21 pounds and another 0.24 pounds. The total should be 0.45 pounds (7 ounces) which rounded off should charge me for 1 pound of shipping.

 

However, my USPS module rounds them off first, then adds which results in overcharging. It sees it as first item weighing 1.21 pounds and second item 1.24 pounds and when added it quotes for an order weighing 2 pounds 7 ounces! It literally doubles shipping!

 

How can I fix this? Is there a fix for this?

 

Please help.

Juan,

 

In the admin panel....under configuration.......shipping and packaging......tare weight.

 

If this is set to anything other than zero it will add that amount to each package.

 

It is used if you have a standard box weight, then the contents weight is added to the standard box weight.
