While you can use your preferred weight unit, we strongly recommend using the same measurement unit globally on your account (for creating shipping methods and in the setup of physical products).

Handling fee

The fee can be defined with whole numbers or by using two place decimals (4.95).

Product group

Assign a specific cart design to a product group and all the products it includes will use the template during the purchase process.

Unit limitation
