What Is The Weight Dispute Manager?
The weight dispute manager helps solve the problem where you’re not in agreement with the weight charged by the courier company for your shipment. Here, you can go to the Weight Reconciliation Tab in the Shiprocket Panel and raise a dispute.
Following are the key issues which the weight dispute manager seeks to remedy:
- It provides visibility for the users to view and track the disputed weight.
- With the removal of mandatory auto-accept, it is now possible to contest the weight proposed by the courier partner.
- The amount charged for the ‘disputed weight’ package will not be deducted but will be put on hold, separate from the ‘usable amount’, until a resolution is reached. You can continue to use our services by recharging your wallet.

Step 1: Go to the Weight Reconciliation tab from the Billing section in your ShipRocket Panel. Here you will find the discrepancy status of all your orders.
Step 2: The orders against which the weight discrepancy has been found will be highlighted as shown below.
Step 3.1: Now you can either Accept the given weight or raise a Dispute. If you choose to raise a dispute, the following pop-up will come up. This is where you need to fill all the required details.
The details asked are:
