Use order total weight If your products in Magento have weights associated with them, you can use this option to use the total weight of the combined items on an order as the weight for the consignment.
Product Weight Unit Select if you have input product weight in KG or grams. Aust Post eParcel requires that all weights are in KG, so if your product weight is entered in Magento in grams, the combined order weight will be converted to KG for consignment and articles weights.
Packaging Allowance Type Use this option if you want to add additional weight to your order total to allow for packaging. Use 'Fixed' if you want to add a set weight to each order, or use Percentage to add an allowance based on a percentage of the total weight for each order.
Packaging Allowance Value Depending on the option you choose for 'Packaging Allowance Type', this value will determine what value to add to the total weight of the combined items on an order. If you select Fixed, then input the additional weight you want to add in KG. eg. .25 for .25 kg/250 grams. If you select percentage, then input the percentage you want to add to an order eg. 5 for 5%. Leave this field empty if you don't want to apply a packaging allowance to orders.
Default Article Weight Set a default Article Weight. This value is used as the default value when selecting 'Custom' article type, and can be overridden when creating articles. Leave blank if you don't want to set a default.
Use article dimensions If you're on a dead-weight of cubic-weight contract with Australia Post, then you may not be required to enter dimensions for each article you ship with eParcel. If that's the case, then set this option to No. If you are required to enter dimensions for articles, then set this option to Yes.
Default Article Height Set a default Article Height. This value is used as the default value when selecting 'Custom' article type, and can be overridden when creating articles. Leave blank if you don't want to set a default.
Default Article Width Set a default Article Width. This value is used as the default value when selecting 'Custom' article type, and can be overridden when creating articles. Leave blank if you don't want to set a default.

Default Charge code for above orders Enter the eParcel Charge Code you want to associate with all of your existing Magento shipping rules and options.
Display order status on Consignment View Set this option to Yes if you want the Magento order status for all orders to be displayed in the consignment view.
Choose the statuses to show in the consignment view? By default, orders that have a status of 'Pending', 'Processing' or have an open consignment against them are displayed in the Consignment View. If you'd like to choose different order statuses to display in the Consignment View then set this option to Yes.
