Automation rule to assign weights and create packages
I have a really simple business — I wholesale boxes of sandals. A typical order from one of my retailers might be:
(1) box of Size 7
(2) boxes of Size 8
(1) box of Size 9
Total Boxes = (4)
My current process would involve importing the order from my store (TradeGecko), and the "adding" (4) total packages and manually assigning the weight of each package. But the box weights are always the same and (1) box always equals (1) "package."
Is there any way I can create an automation rule that streamlines this process and makes it less manual?
