WebShopApps Dimensional Shipping

Do you want accurate live shipping rates in Magento based on how you actually pack your products, not just the weight of the cart?

Our Dimensional Shipping extension is an intelligent solution to this problem for FedEx, UPS and USPS users. It lets you define the dimensions of your products, the dimensions of your boxes and rules for how you package different combinations of products together.

When a customer checks out, Dimensional Shipping works out how the products will be packed based on your rules and calculates the dimensional weight value of the package(s), as well as the actual weight. By sending both values, you give your carrier a better idea of the dimensions and weight of your shipment. In return you get more accurate live shipping rates for your store.


• Smart product packing – works out how products will be grouped and calculates dimensional weight

• Compatible with FedEx, UPS and USPS live rates

• Define dimensions for each of your products

• Define how different combinations of products are packaged together

• Specify the dimensions of each of your boxes

• Assign products to certain boxes (multiple products can be assigned to the same box)

• Option to pack products separately or combine in the same box

• Now supports multiple boxes for the same product

• Supports international pricing

• Option to send declared value to carrier to calculate shipping insurance

• Support for an additional packaging weight

Follow up I'm adding a second review since I'm not able to edit my initial review. All issues have been resolved. I believe this is a good company that has great products but is having some growing pains in the support department. Once they work through them I think they'll be setting the bar for Magento extension providers. I will buy more extensions from them when the need arises. November 6, 2013
Great concept but poor support and implementation i've bought 3 products from this company - dimensional shipping, insurance groups, and residential commercial selector. Two haven't worked. And getting support for the issues is hit or miss. If Karen, the owner of the company, happens to respond to a ticket, she's thorough, clear, and helpful. Anyone else, and it's 2 weeks of going in a circles to prove that the module isn't doing what it should be, getting completely ignored, or getting wrong information. And documentation leaves a lot to be desired. Critical steps of configuration are completely missing. A thoroughly frustrating experience. Save your money. October 31, 2013
High Marks Our previous e-commerce site had to be replaced in weeks and we turned to Magento and WebShopApps to get a professional store up and running which would support our wide variety of products. Dimensional Shipping combined with Shipping Manager allowed us to quickly estimate shipping for everything from a box of small decals to 100lb outdoor signs. We were new to Magento and the support received from WebShopApps made the launch of our site a success. September 20, 2013
Great product and support I had used an earlier version of dimensional shipping with another client and it worked fine. I ran into a few issues with this one but the tech support was right there to handle it despite the fact that I had purchased it a while back. Handled everything and even helped me debug some stupid user error elements. :) September 4, 2013
Value in Product, supperior support We needed a solution to provide accurate shipping rates for our multipiece shipments that were often being based on dimensional weight. This ext solved the issue. We had no IT department or webmaster, so support was needed to get up and going. WSA staff was super helpful with quick response times. Great product and service! February 26, 2013
Looks like a nice plugin and support seems good, but no way to test it out on your server and no money back guarantee. Big bummer for a $240 plugin. October 16, 2012
Hands down, without question the best shipping module designed by the best Magento extension company (their support really is amazing). Combine this with WSA's "Shipping Override" and you have a potent, extremely flexible shipping solution for your Magento store. 6 stars out of 5 July 18, 2012
Excellent extension that does everything as advertised. Amazingly accurate shipping rates. And some of the best support for a product that I've experienced in a long time. 5 stars. June 27, 2012
The webshopapps Dimensional Shipping plugin works as advertised and does it extremely well. Additionally the folks at webshopapps are a passionate and dedicated group of people. If you have any problems in the installation, setup or use of their products they do not rest until your problems have been solved. I've never encountered such incredible customer service before. May 24, 2012
If you are struggling with getting accurate, exact rates from FedEx for your Magento site, I strongly suggest investing in this extension. It WORKS. And the Webshopapps people are helpful and actually DO answer tech support questions! April 28, 2011

Any way to disable freight quotes for packages over a certain size, weight, or dimensional weight, and inform the customer they'll be quoted after ordering?

We are shipping perishable items in 2 different shipping cartons. One requires a little more dry ice than the other. Will I be able to state the dry ice weight needed for each shipper?
