Nominal Value This will be used if the consignment evaluates a zero value item line so that InterSoft does not reject the item line when processing the consignment.
Default Phone Number This will be used where the customer record on the consignment does not have its own telephone number value. InterSoft reject orders where the telephone number is blank but will accept it set as '0'. However, we will give the customer the ability to set their own default.
Weight Scale The weight against your shipments will be multiplied by this scaling factor before sending to the courier. For example, if you store weight in grams, multiply by 0.001 to convert to KG.
Nominal Weight If this value is set, when your shipment has no weight set against it, then this nominal weight will be used instead. Use if your courier classifies parcel as thought they all have an agreed weight. Please use the system weight used throughout Khaos Control.This is then scaled by the weight Scale.Note that it can only be used when packing boxes.
Dimension scale The dimensions against your shipments will be multiplied by this scaling factor before sending to the courier. For example, if you store dimensions in meters, multiple by 100 to covert to cm.
Printer Name Printer to use for this courier. Note that if per-user courier printing is enabled, a user's printer name will be used instead, see Allow Printing by User.
Service Enhancements This option allows a comma-separated list of service enhancements to be applied to the courier service, e.g: 1,4,24. Please contact Royal Mail to find out which enhancements may be applied to which services. (Only from version 8.180)
