Below mentioned is the process to create different package types in Uniware:

1- Under Settings > Package Types

2- Click on “+add package type”  button to create new package type.

3- Fill predefined weight and dimension of your required package type.

Fill Code which can be easily identified when you allocate package to shipments while processing orders, Dimension in mm and weight in gm.

Select Channel from the dropdown if needed.
