Manage Custom Package Types

You can create custom package types to select from when you buy shipping services. Just enter the dimensions one time when you create a new package type, and then use the package type whenever you need it.

To create, modify, or delete custom package types, go to the Buy Shipping Preferences page and click the Edit button for Preferences for all ship-from locations box. Then you will land on the Package Details page:

  1. Perform one or more of these actions:
    • Add a new package type: Click the Add new package button and fill in the columns.
    • Delete an existing package type: Click the "Delete" on the right-hand side of the row.
    • Modify an existing package type: Type the new information over the existing information.
      Note: The package type at the top will also be at the top of the drop-down menu on the Package Details page.
  2. Click the Save button to save your changes. Click the Cancel button to return to the Buy Shipping Preference page.
  • On the Buy Shipping page you can enter different values for any of the three package dimensions for a one-time shipping services purchase. The one-time dimensions will not be saved for future use.
  • The largest dimension will be assumed to be length, the second largest width, the smallest one height.
