  • Warn user when order has not been paid
This option will display a warning before packing or shipping an unpaid order.
  • Show Paid Stamp

  • Dimensional factor
The dimensional weight factor is used to calculate dimensional weight by dividing the cubic size in inches by the factor. For example, an item with a size of 1 cubit foot (1,728 cubic inches) and the default factor of 166 would have a dimensional weight of 10.4 lbs (1728 ÷ 166=10.4).
