Standard Box Sizes Plans - BigCommerce

Information about the plans and pricing for the Standard Box Sizes add-on in the Real-time Shipping Quotes app for BigCommerce

What Does the Standard Box Sizes Plugin Do?

The Standard Box Sizes add-on allows merchants to identify the sizes of the boxes they inventory for shipping purposes. Before requesting a parcel or postal quote, the packaging algorithm identifies the correct box to use for the content of the Cart. The total weight of the box(es) and its (their) dimensions are provided to the parcel or postal provider so that penny-accurate shipping quotes are returned.

What Plans Are Available for the Plugin?

After you enable the add-on, you'll pick a plan.  Each plan is a 'wallet' that gets depleted each time a request for a packaging solution is requested. The available plans are as follows:

100 lookups per month - $5.00 (5 cents each)

250 lookups per month - $10.00 (4 cents each)

500 lookups per month - $15.00 (3 cents each)

1,000 lookups per month - $20.00 (2 cents each)

2,500 lookups per month - $25.00 (1 cent each)

What Happens if the Plan is Depleted Before the Renewal Date?

If the plan you select is fully depleted before the renewal date, the add-on will automatically renew and reset the monthly billing cycle for a new 30-day period.  This ensures that the add-on is always operational. You should review your credit card statement to see how often your current plan is renewed. If you are charged two or more times, you may be able to lower your cost by upgrading your plan.

What Happens to the Unused Lookups When My Plan Renews?

Unused lookups expire at the end of a monthly billing cycle.  If you're on the $5/month plan and only use 80 of the 100 lookups by the renewal date, you will have 100 lookups available for the new billing cycle after the renewal.
