FC2 : specifying units for weight ?

In Perch I have added a weight field to the product and this is being passed to Foxycart Cart
But it displays as "LBS" - I can't see anywhere to set this to Grams .... or am I being thick or blind ?

I guess I can convert values if necessary, but most of my customers think in metric

I then want to test total weight in the custom shipping logic (as a better alternative to my other hack)

    You can set the weight type on your categories within the FoxyCart administraition
  • Aha !
    I had this option set as flat rate and the unit measurement system does not show then.
    But I flipped it to live rate, set it to kgs and then set back to flat rate
    It is now displaying in the cart as KGS

    Thank you for the pointer !
  • I'm glad I found this - I couldn't figure out where the LBS was coming from and now it's fixed. :) I also had to add a default weight so picked the lowest possible and then switched the shipping back to flat rate.

    Oh sorry for the confusion there - I'm glad you were able to get it sorted!
