# How to Calculate Weight Estimates in Infoplus

## See exactly how order weights are estimated in Infoplus so you can understand what's going on behind the scenes to calculate order weights.

### Calculate Entire Order Estimated Weight

This is done using the quantity of the items * the Weight per Wrap from the Item Receipt it allocated from.

Infoplus calculates the estimated weight by taking the number of items in a pallet and multiplying it by the weight of each item.

Pro Tip: In Infoplus, when an item is in a pallet, it is referred to as a wrap

For example, if you have 5 items and they all weigh 1lb, you just received 5lbs (even though they weigh 1lb individually).

If someone orders 2 of the 5lbs, Infoplus knows that 2lbs got added to that order based on unit weights.

### Calculate Entire Order Estimated Weight Tolerances

Estimated Weight Min Max
0 to 2 0 Estimated weight + 1
2 to 26 Estimated weight Estimated weight + (2 * Number of Cartons)
26 to 900 Estimated weight Estimated weight + (3 * Number of Cartons)
900 to * Estimated weight Estimated weight + (.15% of Estimated) + (3 * Number of Cartons)
