Occasionally when booking in with Deutsche Post, you may see the following error on a shipment;

"Invalid Item data: Sum weight of the content must not exceed the item weight"

This is caused by the combined weight of the products in the order being a larger amount that the overall weight in the shipment.

Within the Deutshce Post advanced settings options in Shiptheory, you can find a setting to resolve this issue:

Within this, you can choose from three options as shown here:

Don't Update Weights- This will change nothing and keep the settings as normal

Update Total Shipment Weight- This will update the overall shipment weight to match the combined weight of the products, increasing the overall weight.

Update Product Weights- This will update the combined product weights to match the overall shipment weight, decreasing the combined product weights.

If you have any questions or issues from there, please feel free to contact Support.
