The plugin will automatically pack products to standard FedEx packages or custom boxes based on weight. This way, you’ll get the most accurate rates for FedEx shipping in WooCommerce. FedEx WooCommerce plugin offers three parcel packing methods: Pack into one box by weight, Pack items separately and Pack into custom boxes.

Pack into custom boxes is the most advanced option, that allows defining what boxes do you want to use. It can be a predefined box based on FedEx packaging options or your own custom box.

Predefined boxes:

  • Envelope
  • Reusable Envelope
  • Small polyethylene Pak
  • Large polyethylene Pak
  • Padded Pak
  • Reusable Sturdy Pak
  • Small Box S1
  • Small Box S2
  • Medium Box
  • Large Box L1
  • Large Box L2
  • Extra Large Box
  • Tube
  • 10kg Box
  • 25kg Box
You can find the exact dimensions of packages in FedEx page.

Dimensions of predefined boxes can’t be changed. The plugin allows you to add boxes with custom dimensions.

Custom boxes

To set your own custom boxes, select Pack into custom boxes in the Parcel Packing Method field.
