Products That Are Too Heavy

Sometimes the Shipping error is produced by only a small subset of products.

We have seen this occur most commonly wherein that subset of products are too heavy to be shipped using your chosen Shipping provider / rates:

Merchant Center will indicate that the product is in fact Too Heavy and that a rate could not be calculated based on your provided settings.

You can add weight-based Shipping or a Shipping provider that can ship heavy items to clear this error.

You may also Remove said products temporarily to clear the error from your app dashboard.
