Thread: Box Dimensions by sku

  1. #1
    We ship hundreds of items in the manufacturer's carton and each carton has its own dimensions. When processing an order with one item how can we populate the dimensions based upon the sku being ordered?

    Best bet would be with Automation Rules.

    Intro page:

    And then you can take that further, with lights out automation:

    This way.....we check the order that comes in, and if the SKU matches...we can apply the DIMs automatically in the background.

    How could you do a lights out automation for multiple SKU's that have different box DIMs?

    Would each SKU\item require it's own box, making it into an MPS (multi-parcel shipment)? If so, Automation Rules would not be a good fit as we cannot set the DIMs for each package in the MPS based on the SKU of each item.

    The original poster asked about shipping hundreds of items with unique dimensions and you suggested lights out automation as a solution. I'm asking how you accomplish this for more than one SKU, because I don't see how that's possible.

    You would create a rule for each SKU, to set the DIMs on the package. Then, you would go into the settings area for Lights Out Automation and set to run all enabled rules. So when an order is imported, the automation rule is applied to the order.

    Again, if talking about multiple SKUs on an order, this approach doesn't work as well since we cannot set the values for each SKU to a unique package on the individual order.
