When entering the weight of a product in Volusion, you need to specify the weight using whole numbers for pounds and the decimal equivalent for any ounces.
For example: if a product weighs one pound and one ounce, you can not enter it as 1lb. 1oz., you need to convert the ounces to decimal values where ONE OUNCE = .0625 (lbs), so in the ProductWeight field you would enter: 1.0625
Since there are 16 ounces in a pound, so you can either simply multiply, (ounce x .0625), or use the table below for a quick reference.
|OUNCES||DECIMAL EQUIV.||(Also known as)…|
Note: Volusion support says that using more than four decimal places of precision in shipping weights may cause errors with some shipping calculations. To avoid potential problems, always round the weight of your product to the nearest whole ounce, and use the values from the chart above, (they are four decimal places or less), and you will avoid shipping rate calculation errors.
