We do not recommend that you use any shipping services without product dimensions.
Extension Works always recommends the packing method 'Box packing'.
POINTS YOU NEED TO CONSIDER:
If you wish to use Fastway with no product dimensions and weight only, you will need to select the packing method WEIGHT BASED. The other packing methods will not work.
As Fastway uses cubic weight (dimensional weight), we are not endorsing the weight based packing method and if you decide to use the weight based packing method you do so at your own risk.
Fastway has the right to refuse to ship your products if the dimensional weight is greater than the actual dead weight.
The rates that are available at http://fastway.com.au are based on dimensional weight.
Therefore any price comparison from their website and the results using our plugin and the weight based packing method will not be accurate or the same.
Using Fastway and the weight based packing method, the rates will NOT include the Fastway Satchels, only the Parcel rate will be offered. Fastway Satchel pricing requires the product dimensions to pack the products into the Satchels.
WEIGHT BASED SHIPPING REQUIRES:
1, You need to set up a weight unit for ALL products.
2, You need to create custom containers/boxes, this is a REQUIREMENT, if you do not set up any custom containers your products will be shipped individually. This will increase the cost of shipping.
3, You need to select the packing method- Weight Based.
4, You need to enable your containers for the weight based packing method and enable use.
