An email subscription sent out per update would be excellent. Glad Shopify is finally (far far overdue) doing this again.

Ty, thanks for posting this. It's a good step for transparency.

I plan on selling two products - one tiny that ships in a bubble mailer, and one large that ships in a 12x12x8 box. I'm using Shopify Shipping to calculate USPS rates. My customer are NOT going to pay $10 in shipping on the tiny $6 product because Shopify can only handle one pacakge size and thinks it must go in the big box.

So....any update on the years' old request to have more than one package size available? This seems like such a basic thing to incorporate; the software already allows for multiple packages to be entered, we just can't assign them to products.

Thanks

Hi, Ryan!
 
Anders from the Shopify Social Care team here. Thanks for the feedback here!

I understand how important is to charge the most accurate shipping rates to your customers. While there isn't yet a way to directly apply package weights to products, there are a few workarounds available. While an app like Boxify would allow you to assign different packages to certain products, it does come at an extra cost.

The other (free) option would be to set your default package weight to 0.0 and add the package weight to the total weight of your products. For this to work, first, weigh out the bubble mailer and the large box. Next, open the bulk editor tool in your 'Products' tab, and add the proper additional weights to the products that use that specific packaging. This will ensure that the live rates pulled at your checkout will be accurate to the total weight of the order. 

But, rest assured, I've also passed your feature request along to our developers for consideration. The more requests they hear from our community, the more informed they will be when determining which products to develop next.

Cheers!

Anders,

A genuine thank you for the quick reply and suggestion. I think I have things working with the zero package weight method you described...but what a lousy work-around for such a simple ecommerce function.

Since Shopify's customers have been asking for this functionality for many years, I'll venture a guess that Shopify has simply made a decision to NOT implement this. Tongue firmly in cheek: why make the platform better when you can just direct your customers to buy a third party app that Shopify gets additional revenue from? Win win for Shopify and the third party app devs, lose lose for your paying customers.
