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
|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)|
