Effective November 1, 2016, we will reduce weight handling fees for all items shipped in November and December 2016. These reduced fees are designed to offset the increase in monthly storage fees for sellers who reduce or sell through inventory.
Weight handling fees return to the amounts listed in the Prior to November 1, 2016 columns beginning January 1, 2017.
Although standard-size products are often smaller than oversize products, they require more complex and costly shelving, drawers, and bins for storage. Fees are charged by cubic foot, however, which means that standard-size products' overall storage fee may be less than that of oversize products, based on volume.
