Reference Guide


Use this tab to give Miva Merchant information about the boxes you are using. Click on New Box to add a box to your store.

The fields that you see in the Add Box dialog box will change, depending on what you selected in:

Menu> Shipping > Settings tab > Packaging Rules section > Box Packing field

Packing Rules

Pack by Weight

Pack by Quantity

Pack by Cubic Volume

Description: Enter a description for this box as you want it to appear in the admin interface.

Box Weight: The Box Weight field was added in Miva Merchant 9.0005. You may want to use this field if your boxes, by themselves, have significant weight; for example, if you have boxes made of wood, or if you always add a certain amount of dry ice to this box. Note that the box weight will affect the shipping rate calculation.

Shipping Dimensions: Enter the size of the box.

Max Weight: Enter the maximum weight that this box can hold. You will only see this field if you are using Pack by Weight.

Max # of Items: Enter the maximum number of items that this box can hold. You will only see this field if you are using Pack by Quantity.

Enabled: Checking the Enabled box makes your box available to the system. If you uncheck this box, your box settings can be saved, but the box won't be used by Miva Merchant when a customer places an order.
