Create Dimensions For a Single Product

Product Dimensions are only required if you are calculating shipping using Live Rates.

This guide will teach you how to enter dimensions for Single products. To learn how to enter dimensions for Multiple products simultaneously, click here.

Add Product Dimensions

  • Click the Shipping menu button, then select Products from the drop-down list.
  • Click on a Product to add Dimensions.
  • Enter the Length, Width, Height and Weight of the shipping size of the Product – e.g. if a t-shirt is folded to dimensions 12 x 8 x 1 inches, that is the shipping size.

If you do not enter a weight, Intuitive Shipping uses the weight you entered on the Shopify Product Information Page.

Additional Settings

  • Choose whether or not to Exclude From Free Shipping. When enabled, the Product will always be charged a shipping cost.

Add Variants (Optional)

  • If your product has variants – e.g. S, M, L, XL – click on Show Variants.
  • Enter the Dimensions for each of the Variants.

If your variants have the same shipping dimensions – e.g. if each size of t-shirt has the same folded dimensions – you can leave the dimensions blank.

Optional Settings

Ship A Product In Multiple Pieces

  • If your product will be shipped in multiple pieces, click the Add Piece button, then enter the Length, Width, Height and Weight for each piece.

Shipping Zone Settings

  • If desired, add a Custom Shipping Charge under Custom Shipping First Quantity for each Shipping Zone.

If Custom Shipping First Quantity is empty, the system will not calculate a per product shipping charge for the product.

  • If desired, add a Custom Shipping Charge under Custom Shipping Additional Quantity for each Shipping Zone.
  • If desired, check the box beside Do Not Ship to This Zone. When enabled, no shipping costs will be returned by Intuitive Shipping, preventing a customer in this Shipping Zone from completing their checkout.
  • If your product has variants – e.g. S, M, L, XL – click on Show Variants, then repeat the above Shipping Zone steps for each variant.

Save Your Settings

  • Click the Save button!
  • Click the Shipping menu button, then select Products from the drop-down list. You’ll now see the dimensions you just added displayed in the Products list.
Nice Job!

You’ve created dimensions for a Product!
