We have a problem in which we have an item that originally weighed 3 pounds, but that falls into an 8-pound box due to size. This is fine, since we will then set the product to around 8 pounds and finish. However, when, for example, 5 of the same item is ordered in an order, we end up using a different box that essentially changes the weights again to return to around £ 3 per item instead of £ 8 per item when purchased separately. .
Order 1: 1 of Item X purchased, product weight comes as 8 pounds. Order 2: 5 of Item X purchased, product weight should be 3 pounds each, totaling to 15 pounds, not 42 pounds.
Is there any way to attack this kind of problem in Magento?
