To assign dangerous goods using rules follow the below steps:

  1. Navigate to Settings > Rules.
  2. Create a new rule with any condition. E.g: SKU equals 12345.
  3. Select the action Set Dangerous Goods Type.
  4. Select Value > UPS.
  5. In the field next to Value, enter the identification number (UN Number/Commodity ID number) of the dangerous good you’ve set up in Starshipit.
