Troubleshoot- Packaging Multiple Items Separately..!
Most of the customers often face problems while shipping two or more products. One such issue regarding multiple product shipping surfaced when a customer explained his case. Let’s take a look at the issue he was facing:
I tried selecting two products for shipping.The two products are not packed together in a box. As a result the two products are shipped individually which is causing the shipping charges to be more expensive.
It is a very common issue regarding the store owners which deliver multiple products. But this issue can be easily resolved using WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin.
UPS Parcel Packing Methods
WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin provides three UPS Parcel Packing methods. The image below shows UPS Shipping methods:
Considering the scenario, as the packages were being packed independently, this was mainly because the Pack Items Individually parcel packing was enabled. This allows UPS to generate individual boxes for the number of items that are to be shipped. But since the customer wants to ship the packages together in a box, this packaging method is of no use to him.
On the other hand, the image below shows custom boxes with a weight limit and dimensions. This can easily allow multiple items that fall under the dimensions and weight limits, to be packed together.
Using Packed into boxes with weights and dimensions parcel packing, you can enable multiple items to be shipped together in a single box. Based on the product weight and dimensions when placed together, you can create custom boxes that will accommodate multiple products together.
Since UPS charges more for more packages, using this parcel method you can save on shipping charges as the total packages will be less than that of individual packaging.
