Item weight in kgItem weight in kg


Hello, Kindly help me with this. Is there a way to change these units to KG instead of LB because my products and courier company charges are based on KG. So my products Units are stored in KG.

This is an accepted solution.

Hi @SpotOnForMe,

Nick here from Shopify. Great question! 

Your store would only be able to show one unit system throughout the store, but you can change this if you should wish. You can change it by taking the following steps: 

Shopify Admin > Settings > General > Standards and Formats > Unit System 

It should like this: 


Once you change the Unit System, you can change the weight unit to lbs for your store and it should show up in your shipping settings. 

Shopify also has a guide for this going into more detail which you can see here

All the best, Nick
