Shipping weight

How do you deal with the weight of packing materials and the box itself? How is it calculated?

In foxyshop I can input the weight. Do I need to add/include the weight of the shipping materials or is that taken into consideration when the checkout calculates rates?

    In FoxyCart's next shipping version things will be more flexible but for now, it isn't an exact science. You can add some packaging weight to each product or some handling fees on the FoxyCart admin to the shipping category. I usually recommend that you add some weight padding to each product to make up for the box weight. If you have lots of small items this gets a little harder to account for.
