Xend UNLIPAK (New!)

What is Xend UNLIPAK?

Are you selling heavy items and wish to save costs on delivery? UNLIPAK is a volume-based courier service offered by Xend and it helps you to do just that! With volumetric delivery costing, you do not have to worry that your small but heavy items would cost a lot to deliver.

Activating Xend UNLIPAK

1. To use Xend UNLIPAK, simply to go the Delivery tab, and click Configure on the Xend delivery option.

2. Under Xend Packaging Type, choose UNLI WEIGHT Pouch.

3. Xend UNLIPAK is now activated!

What does "Default Pouch Size & Max. Capacity of Pouch" mean?

Upon activating Xend UNLIPAK, all products will be assigned the Default Pouch Size and Default Max. Capacity of Pouch values.

Default Pouch Size

This refers to the size of the pouch to be used on ALL your products.

For example, in the screenshot above, the XL Pouch is chosen as the Default Pouch Size. Therefore, all the products in your inventory will be packed into XL-sized pouches.

Default Max. Capacity of Pouch

This refers to the quantity of a single product that can be fitted into the specified pouch size for ALL your products.

For example, in the screenshot above, each XL Pouch is able to fit 4 pieces of a product.

Note: If you allow all the products to take the default values for Xend UNLIPAK pouch size and max. capacity, the system will automatically maximise the use of each pouch for you. For example, if Product A and B have the default values of XL Pouch and maximum 4 pieces per pouch, having both Products A and B in the shopping cart would mean only using 1 XL pouch to contain both items.

Customising Pouch Size and Pouch Capacity for individual products

Sometimes, your products might be of different sizes and would require different pouch sizes and max. capacities.

For example, a tennis racket might be a larger item. Hence, you would need an XL pouch and the maximum number of rackets you can fit in an XL pouch might be only 1.

1. Click on the Products tab to list out all your items.

2. Search for the product you want to customise the XEND UNLIPAK settings and click Edit.

3. Scroll down to find Shipping Limitations for Product.

4. Select Custom to set the specific Pouch Size and how many pieces of the product this pouch can contain.

5. Note that for every product that has customised XEND UNLIPAK settings, it will be packed individually. There will be no maximisation of pouch space with OTHER products. i.e. other products, besides the tennis racket, will not fit into the pouch to make use of any extra space. More details in the next section.

Calculating delivery costs of UNLIPAK

Assume that a buyer has 3 products in his shopping cart: 2 pairs of shoes called Tokuten, another 3 pairs of shoes called Court Tempo, and 2 Tennis Rackets.

Both shoes are left to the default values and only the Tennis Racket has customised XEND UNLIPAK settings. Here's how the delivery fees will be calculated for your buyer.

The Tennis Rackets require 2 XL Pouches because we set the maximum quantity per XL pouch to be ONE Tennis Racket. So, 2 Tennis Rackets would require 2 XL Pouches.

To ship all 5 pairs of shoes, we require 2 XL Pouches because they have default values of XL Pouch and each XL Pouch can fit up to FOUR pairs of shoes. So, 5 pairs of shoes would require 2 XL Pouches - 4 pairs in one XL Pouch and 1 pair in another XL pouch.

The total number of pouches you need is summarised in the Orders tab.

Simply click View on an order to see the Order Details.
