How to Calculate Dimensional Weight for eCommerce Shipping
Posted by Jessica Grioua on 21 June 2021 10:00 AM

Shipping costs are consistently the leading cause of shopping cart abandonment. Customers add products to their cart and get through checkout, only to see shipping costs that they didn’t expect to pay. For many customers, this is enough to put them off of going through with the purchase entirely.

In order to be upfront with customers about their expected shipping costs, you also need to understand how their costs will be calculated as a business owner. One of the most common ways that shipping carriers calculate rates is through “dimensional weight.” Without knowing how dimensional weight works, you and your customer may end up paying more for shipping than you should.
