Thanks for the replies.

In this case it didn't really matter since I could still post as a large
letter in a bigger jiffy which itself weighs slightly more but didn't tip
the overall weight into the next price bracket.

I'm wondering how BL calculates the size required for a lot of small plates
since there is plently of 'air' between them all which could skew the
calculation somewhat (unlike bigger bricks for example which are easier to pack
closely together so less 'air'

  I stock a range of different sized PIP boxes to cover the larger quantities when
using large letter, might be worth getting a few (I hold 3 different sizes) along
with a range of different sized Jiffy's. Also when listing parts check that
larger items have the dimensions, if they are missing you can either add your
own or select 'manual' for shipping dimensions to avoid the headache
of the customer paying larger letter and then you having to send by small parcel.

  So.... I took the plunge this week and set up Instant Checkout options for my
buyers. My main reservation with doing so has always been how on earth BL would
correctly calculate the size of the ordered items (which obviously affects the
postage cost) but I figured it's been live for long enough now that any teething
issues would have been sorted out.

Yesterday I got my first order from Instant Checkout. The postage option selected
had dimensions of 18cm x 10cm x 2cm specifically to fit into a size 'B'
jiffy bag (large letter rate in the UK)

However, having picked the order which consisted of 13 lots of small plates/tiles
in quantites ranging 20-50 I find there is no chance it would fit into such dimensions.
I could understand if it was a bit off but I think it would only just fit into
twice the specified size.

I know you can add some % adjustment options in the settings for the shipping
method but this discrepancy seems too large for that.

Does anyone have any similar experiences of this kind of problem with IC?

Thanks in advance.
Steve

They are mostly CMF character cards although some do have small builds on them.

Check out last year's set here:
