Why doesn't PayPal do dimensional weight? I'm getting charged for underpaid postage!

I've been using the shipping tools for a while now, but recently the shipping via Paypal has resulted in hefty fees by USPS, the latest of which was $75.


When contesting this I was told that the weight was calculated wrong.  The box was 24lbs and 20x19x19. USPS says that after 12x12x12 you take the dimensions and divide by 166. So the actual "weight" is now 20x19x19/166 or 43.4 which becomes 44lbs.  


This is a HUGE difference.
