The Inventory Count Matters
Another reason: the inventory count. Sometimes, it's just impossible to count the exact number of pens in a box…and for your order of 500 pens, it would take a lot of time to count! So for smaller items (like pens) that are inexpensive and light, we'll count your package by weight instead! So if one of your pens weighs one ounce, then your box of 500 should weigh 500 ounces (or around 31 pounds)!
