The units used for measuring a product's dimensions is an important concern for your customers though they will not actually see the units in their interface unless the product description includes this information. It will be a key factor in a customer's purchase since it will be used to determine available shippers. This determination of available shippers would be done by the administrator in the Dashboard when determining available shippers for the products sold in the store (for further information see How to Set Dimensions and Unit of Measurement for Shippers in OpenCart 1.5. These units of measure can also become important if your product is sold by length or other dimensions. The following tutorial will show how to set the units used for determining the dimensions of a product within OpenCart 1.5.
|Length Title||the full name of the measurement unit|
|Length Unit||the abbreviation of the measurement unit|
|Value||Value of each unit based off the default unit; measurement conversions are based on the default unit of measurement|
The customer will only see the units of measurement if they are posted in the product description, or if the product is sold by units of length. Here's an example where the product's dimensions are shown in the Catalog:
In the screenshot above left, you can see the units in the Length Class for the product (set to Centimeter, above) and in the right, the product dimensions are in the description. Note that both inches and centimeters are shown. The measurements used in product description will not change if the unit of length used by the store is changed. The description would need to be updated to match that change.
The other location where you will see the setting for Length Class is in Shipping. Again, this only available to administrators of the store. Here's the screenshot of a shipper listing in the OpenCart 1.5 Administrator Dashboard:
