View Source ExCheckout.Package (ex_checkout v1.1.1)

Defines the struct for storing a Package, which is then passed along with an origin and destination address for shipping estimates. A description is optional, as it may or may not be used with various carriers.

For USPS, a package has a container string which can be one of the pre-defined USPS containers.

Do not pass a weight parameter. Instead, pass in a list of :items with a weight parameter on each of these. The weight on the package will be the sum of the weights of each of these. Same for :monetary_value.

:description can optionally be passed in. Otherwise, it will be generated by joining the descriptions of each of the items.

ExCheckout.Package.package(%{length: 8
                          width: 8,
                          height: 8,
                          items: [
                            %{weight: 1, monetary_value: 100, description: "A"},
                            %{weight: 2, monetary_value: 200, description: "B"}
                          ]})

# => %Package{weight: 3, monetary_value: 300, description: "A, B", ...}
