A catch weight item is something that is sold by the piece but priced by the weight (pound or ounce). This means the final price of the item depends on the final weight. For example, a steak might be a catch weight item. The buyer will buy 5 steaks (not 11 lbs. of steak), but the price is $9.00 per pound (not $9.00 per steak). When a buyer purchases a catch weight item from you, you’ll need to put the final weight of the item into the system by or on date of delivery to finalize the order.
