Hi, could someone please post the link or explain briefly how to set my instant
checkout/shipping setting properly? After certain items defaulted to a volume
based calculation, I've been stuck having to manually calculate shipping
for buyers as I was entirely weight based before.

I only carry items under a certain size and the average order I receive fits
into one particular bubble envelope. So basically I need to bypass any volume
calculation in the shipping API or should I just set the volume of my uploaded
items to 0x0x0?

Thank you!

Remove volume restrictions or set the dimensions of your shipping method to huge
so that all items qualify?

Well, let me rephrase, is there any way to lift the volume restriction on First
Class Packages? Or is my only choice to go in and add dimensions to all my parts??

What are the current package restrictions you got set for that shipping method?

For First Class Packages, it does not allow me to change the package restrictions.
