Cubic weight modifier
This used to determine how many kilograms equal 1 cubic meter for a particular shipping method, which allows the system to calculate the cubic weight of your orders. The standard cubic weight modifier for most road carriers is 250 kg/m3 which means that 250kg is equal to 1 cubic meter – please check with your carrier for this information.

If your freight company does not charge you based on cubic weight (only dead weight for example) then you do not need to enter a cubic weight modifier. This is not required for flat rate methods, or methods not calculated based on weight.

Packaging allowance % or kg
This is used to add a buffer to the calculate order weight with which shipping charges are calculated. If you enter 5% in this field, the calculated order weight will increase by 5%. This charge is not visible to customers.

Fuel levy % or $
The percentage or $ value added here will increased the system calculated shipping rates by this value. If you enter 5% in this field, the calculated shipping costs will increase by 5%. This charge is not visible to customers.

Handling cost

Checking the “round up to the nearest kg” will tell the system to round all orders up to the nearest kg. Uncheck this box if you want the system to calculate on the exact weight.
