*Multi-Channel fulfillment Order Handling: Each Oversize Unit is generally sent as a single shipment in its own package; therefore Amazon does not aggregate the fees for multiple Unit orders that include both Standard-Size and Oversize Units. When calculating the fulfillment fees for orders that include Oversize Units, each Oversize Unit in the order is assessed for the applicable per unit Order Handling fee.

**Large-screen televisions: Refers to TVs with screens 42" or larger. However, smaller televisions could qualify for the Special Handling fee based on other factors, such as weight and how delicate the TV is.

Calculating the Outbound Shipping Weight for the Weight Handling fee

For Multi-Channel fulfillment orders, the total shipment weight is used to determine the Outbound Shipping Weight.

  1. Start with either the Unit Weight or the Dimensional Weight*, whichever is greater.
  2. Add the weight for all units in the shipment.
  3. Add a dunnage** factor of 10% for the total shipment weight.
  4. Round the total shipment weight up to the nearest 500 g for the Outbound Shipping Weight.

If multiple items are combined into a single package, the Product Size Tier used for the Weight Handling Fee is determined using the dimensions of the Outbound Shipping Package and the Outbound Shipping Weight.

* Dimensional Weight: Following industry practices, the billable product weight will be the greater of the product's actual weight and its dimensional weight where dimensional weight is calculated as the product's volume (length x width x height) in centimetres cubed, divided by 5,000. This provides the dimensional weight in kilograms. This calculation is used by both UPS and Canada Post for ground shipments. In accordance with local standards, shipment weight will be calculated by adding all of the weights of the seller's products in a shipment, adding the weight of the box and then rounding up to the nearest 100 g for Envelope shipments and 500 g for Standard shipments.

** Dunnage covers the packing materials and is calculated as 10% of either the Dimensional Weight or the Unit Weight, depending on which is used.

1 Standard-Size includes any packaged Unit that is 9 kg or less with its longest side 45 cm or less, its shortest side 20 cm or less and its median side 35 cm or less. A Unit exceeding any of these dimensions is Oversize.

2 For orders on Amazon, the usual Selling on Amazon fees apply.

3 Unit weights, dimensions and other measures used to calculate fees are as determined by Amazon. The Unit Weight is the weight of an individual Unit. The Packaging Weight is the weight of the box and packing materials.

Note:

For Multi-Channel fulfillment orders, the Product Size Tier used for the Weight Handling Fee is determined using the dimensions of the Outbound Shipping Package and the Outbound Shipping Weight.
