What are box dimensions?Updated a year ago

Are you inputting your dimensions for a custom shipping box? If so, you might be confused - what are the height, width, and length?

Box dimensions always refer to measurements INSIDE of the box. You will list the dimensions in inches according to Length x Width x Height. 

The length is typically the larger dimension of the open face/flap opening, and the width is typically the smaller. For example, the length of a tab-locking box is the horizontal edge with the opening facing you. The height is perpendicular to the length and width, or how tall the box is.

Use these visuals to clarify the length x width x height of your shipping box.
