I understand why a product weight is important to have, it helps with the shipping cost calculations etc. But there are numerous of instances where ‘weight’ is a non ecommerce factor.
Imagine building a jewelry ecommerce store, this would either require weighing all the products or making the client go through the nuisance of having to say 0 lbs/kg/gr for every product that’s being added.
Furthermore, having a ‘weight’ as a primary product attribute kinda suggest we’re only thinking about physical products. What about downloadable products? Assembled products? Service subscriptions? These are all product types where weight is a non factor….
you are absolutely correct. The e-commerce preview that you have seen on the webinar has been done quite a long time ago. In the final release you will be able to create dynamic product types. The weight is not an attribute of a general product anymore.
Therefore, you will be able to have non-physical goods, so to say.
Indeed there were some problems with setting predefined values to weight field. I logged PITS issue in our issue tracking system.The issue ID is 7587.
