I'm in the process of adding some very large, very heavy items to my store. I've been struggling for days to find the best way to handle shipping on these items without messing up shipping on my other items (which are mostly smaller lightweight items, ordered in larger quantities)
During this, I realized that if I had the ability to change ALL shipping settings for a specific warehouse, it would not only solve this problem, but open up options for other issues as well.
I have set 40# as the maximum weight for packages in my store - this helps keep shipping quotes somewhat accurate because we won't pack too many things in one box. But now I'm adding items that weigh 100# - no shipping options show up because of the 40# weight limit.
Support suggested I set up LTL shipping, which allows a separate weight limit, and that SORT OF fixes my issue. But it limits my shipping offerings on these items. If I could still allow regular UPS and Fedex but with different weight limits, this would offer more shipping options to my customers.
