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.
The size of your product is classified differently for FBA & Easy Ship and depends on the product weight and length, width & height once packed
Size Guidelines for Easy Ship
  • Standard size: Items weighing less than 5kg
  • Oversize: Items weighing 5kgs or above, except 'Heavy & Bulky' items
  • Heavy & Bulky: *Item from categories such as Large Appliances, TV, Sports & Furniture are classified as 'Heavy & Bulky' items if it meets one or more of the following criteria:
    -Item package weight is more than 30 kg or item package length is more than 240 cm or item package girth# is more than 400 cm; or
    -Item requires special handling during pickup, delivery & installation. #Girth = [Length + 2*(Width + Height)] 'Heavy & Bulky' items are currently not eligible for delivery nationally under Easy Ship.
  • 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 66 i.e. INR 45 (charge for first 500 gms) + INR 21 (charge for next 500 gms).
  • Amazon Easy Ship 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.

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 = ₹ 26
Step 3: Product Type: Small
Shipping Fee & Other Fees = ₹38 Fee w/o Tax = 1323+26+38 = ₹ 1387
Fee with Tax (@18%) = 1387 x 1.18 = ₹ 1636.66
So, total Amazon Fee is 8.6%
Standard Product: Mixer Grinder
Product Info:
Dimensions: 25 x 22 x 17.6 cm
Unit weight: 3.50 kg
Listing price on Amazon: ₹ 2,500
How to calculate fees for this product:
Step 1: Referral fee = 5.5% * 2500 = ₹ 137.5
Step 2: Closing Fee = ₹ 26
Step 3: Product Type: Standard
Shipping Fee & Other Fees = ₹84
Fee w/o Tax = 137.5+26+84 = ₹ 247.5
Fee with Tax (@18%) = 287.5 x 1.18 = ₹ 292.05
So, total Amazon Fee is 11.6%
Oversize Product: Television
Product Info:
Dimensions: 137 x 88 x 10 cm
Unit weight: 19.5 kg
Listing price on Amazon: ₹ 15,000
How to calculate fees for this product:
Step 1:Referral fee = 6% * 15000 = ₹ 900
Step 2: Closing Fee = ₹ 26
Step 3: Product Type: Oversize
Shipping Fee & Other Fees = ₹246
Fee w/o Tax = 900 + 26 + 246 = ₹ 1172
Fee with Tax (@18%) = 1172 x 1.18 = ₹ 1383
So, total Amazon Fee is 9.2%
