Item Weight

BrickLink stores weight for items in the reference catalog in specified item types. Sellers also have an option to enter their own custom weight for their items for sale. If both catalog weight and custom weight are present on an item for sale or item ordered then the custom weight is used.
  • Catalog Item Weight - Parts, Sets, Books and Gear can have weight in the catalog. Weight must be entered as a number in grams using the metric system. Weight of Sets, Books, and Gear is of an unopened sealed item including original box or packaging. Weight of Parts is of the single part. Weight for catalog items can be supplied by BrickLink members through the Catalog Change Request Form.

  • Custom Weight - Sellers can enable custom weight entry field in their Store Settings page to be able to enter weight on any item for sale in their inventory including items not tied to the catalog. Weight must be entered as a number in grams using the metric system for quantity 1 of the item for sale. Catalog weight is displayed below the weight entry field on the seller's inventory detail page. Sellers can view which items in their inventory are missing both weight in catalog and custom weight by selecting options "No Weight in Catalog" and "Missing My Own Weight" on their My Inventory summary page.

  • Weight in Shopping Cart - Buyers can opt-in in their Store Shopping Settings to show weight of items in their shopping cart. Sellers can opt-out in their Store Settings to not show weight in their store's shopping cart to buyers opted-in to show it.

If this setting is activated, the seller can always see the weight on their orders received.
