Weight Handling Fee (Shipping Fee)

If you use Easy Ship or Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), Amazon will deliver your products to the customer and charge you a fee. (If you are choosing to Self-Ship, you will have to bear the cost of shipping and deliver through 3rd party courier service/own delivery agents).

Different fee rates are applicable based on distance.
  • Local rate will be applicable where the pickup and delivery happen in the same city i.e. intra-city pickup and delivery.
  • Regional zone consists of four regions. Regional rate will apply if shipment moves within the same region and the service is not within the same city.
  • National rate will apply if shipment moves across regions.
Your product size classification depends on the product weight and length, width & height once packed.
Size Guidelines
  • Your products will be classified as either Standard or Heavy Bulky.
  • An item is classified as 'Heavy & Bulky' if it meets one or more of the following criteria:
    • Item from categories such as washing machines, refrigerator, air conditioner, microwave, chimney, dishwashers, television, treadmills, cycles (wheel diameter > 20”), large furniture (e.g. beds, sofa sets, wardrobes etc.), deep freezers, or
    • Item package weight is more than 22.5 kg or
    • Maximum (item package length, item package width, item package height) > 72” or 183 cm or
    • Girth > 118” or 300 cm #Girth = [Length + 2*(Width + Height)]
    • Multi box items or Items requiring carpenter installation (non DIY)
  • For standard-size items, the minimum chargeable weight is 500 gms. In case of items that weigh more than 500 gms, you will be charged in multiples of the price applicable for each 500 gms. For example, the Amazon Easy Ship Weight-Handling Fees for 800 gms package being shipped to a regional location will amount to INR 69 i.e. INR 48 (charge for first 500 gms) + INR 21 (charge for next 500 gms).
  • Amazon Shipping Fees is computed on volumetric or actual weight, whichever is higher. Volumetric weight is calculated as Volumetric Weight (kg) = (Length x Breadth x Height)/5000 where LBH are in cm.
NOTE: These fee rates are applicable for new sellers who will join the "Standard" level in the Amazon STEP program. As sellers move up levels, they will be able to unlock multiple benefits including fee waivers, account management, faster disbursement cycles & more.

Step 4: Calculate your Total Fees

Add the above mentioned fees (Step 1, 2 and 3) and apply 18% GST

Total Fee = Referral Fee + Closing Fee + Fulfillment Fee + Tax (18%)
Example
Small Product: Camera Lens
Product Info:
Dimensions: 11.7 x 7.7 x 7.7 cm
Unit weight: 0.25 kg
Listing price on Amazon: ₹ 18,900
How to calculate fees for this product:
Step 1: Referral fee = 7% * 18900 = ₹ 1323
Step 2: Closing Fee = ₹ 30
Step 3: Product Type: Standard
Shipping Fee & Other Fees = ₹38
Fee w/o Tax = 1323+26+38 = ₹ 1391 i.e 7.4%
Note:
• Fees shown in the table above is displayed excluding applicable taxes. Amazon will charge 18% Goods and Services Tax (GST) on all fees displayed above.
• Shipping fee is computed based on the outbound shipping weight which is Aggregated Billing weight of all units in the shipment + Packaging weight. We will use 100gm as the Packaging weight for Standard shipments & 500gm as the Packaging weight for Heavy Bulky shipment.
• Billing weight is defined as the higher of actual weight or volumetric weight.
• Volumetric Weight is calculated using the formula, (Length x Width x Height) divided by 5000 to get the Volumetric Weight of a unit in kilograms. Length, Width and Height are all in centimeters.
• For the below mentioned categories, if the actual weight is less than 1kg and volumetric weight is more than 2 times actual weight, then the billing weight would be capped at 2 times the actual weight.
