    • Default Size of Box i.e : unit size minimum 1

    Now Boxes To Ship field value is defined in product > Box Calculator tab under Enter Minimum Required Entry input field, which means the total boxes that are required to ship. units are defined in textField Default Size Of Box and unit of Box select field.

    Product unit Price is the origianl price of the product per box. The total price is calculted by multiplying the unit price with Boxes to ship. The resulting unit is price to boxes.

    The quantity for boxes is the Boxes to ship i.e total number of boxes.

    Box Size is calculated by multiplying Boxes to ship(total number of boxes) with per unitBox.

    So the whole calculation scenario can be understood by considering :
    let we have defined the default number of boxes to 3 with boxSize(unit) to 2 having units in square foot. By following the above defined business rule, boxCalculator calocultes the boxsize, price and quantity as: (consider the product per box is $4.00)

    • Boxes to Ship = 3; then:
      1. totalPrice= unitPrice * Boxes to ship = 4*3=12
      2. Box Size = Boxes to ship * units = 3 * 2 = 6
    • Boxes to Ship = 4; then:
      1. totalPrice= unitPrice * Boxes to ship = 4*4=16
      2. Box Size = Boxes to ship * units = 4 * 2 = 8
    • Boxes to Ship = 10; then:
      1. totalPrice= unitPrice * Boxes to ship = 4*10=40
      2. Box Size = Boxes to ship * units = 10 * 2 = 20
