Shipping costs used to be charged by weight. The heavier the parcel was, the more expensive the shipping. Today, most carriers apply a dimensional weight or volumetric weight formula and charge you the highest price between the real package size and the calculated one. Using only weight to get shipping rates results in inaccurate pricing.
Ship•Systems uses real product and box dimensions to find the smallest box or boxes your customer orders will fit in. Then it gets live shipping rates based on the final dimensions and weight of that packed order. Your customers will see the real rates and choose the one they want, shouldering 100% of the real cost of shipping. They get the items they want at the real price and you protect your profit margins, allowing you to grow faster and reinvest in your business.
How it works
- Pack the largest items first.
- Pack vertically up the side of the box.
- Pack side-by-side when the item fits beside the previous one.
- Allow only very small overhangs to prevent damage in transit.
- Distribute weight evenly between boxes when more than one is needed.
Ship•Systems will show you how to pack the final order in 3D right in your browser or integrated app. With full Shopify integration, you never need to leave your store's admin area to get the packing instructions.
Ship•Systems requires the Shopify Carrier Service API for real-time cart calculations. The Carrier Service is included in the Shopify Advanced plan and up or on the Basic plan with Annual Payments.

I searched the app store for a solution to our shipping needs for one that would accurately calculate weight, size and cost for combined products of different dimensions. We also needed integration with Canada Post, which is our most used carrier. After wasting time trying out others that turned out not to work or couldn't accept product dimensions in units under 1 inch, I was afraid this one would be the same. Happily, Ship Systems does just what we want! Another bonus is that the office staff were able to figure out how to use it while processing orders without any help. I can't say enough about how excellent the support has been! Jonathan replied quickly to my support requests and went above and beyond to correct my issues. He even helped with workarounds for some Shopify deficiencies and came up with a solution to our need for free shipping for one product. I highly recommend this app for Canadian users.

so we as a business had a problem that our main product gets sold as a box of thirty. however we offer 3 other variants of the products and they are sold singularly, so there was no real way to organise a accurate price on products of different sizes and different order values, Jonathon app, allowed me to enter my product sizes, and automatically calculates the order and sync to the carrier rates, so your end user gets a true price, but one of the biggest advantages was a link was provided so our packing team can access the data and its gives a graphical representation of how to pack the box in the way it has quoted for, cutting down on packing mistakes but also improving speed of the packing, this was an issue we was not looking forward to having to tackle, and has been made easy, thank to Jonathon, we are not linked in any way although he has helped us ongoing ly during this process im just a firm believer of giving good reviews when its warranted :)
