The CouriersPlease shipping extension for Magento 2 will calculate the shipping cost based on the weight of the items in the cart. If a product in the shopping cart does not have its weight set, the API will return an error. It is recommended to set the product weight to either the weight of the product when shipped or the cubic weight of the shipping package, whichever is the greater.
