Set your delivery rates

You can set your shipping rates in three ways:

Item/weight-based shipping

When a customer purchases your products, Amazon applies the flat per-shipment rate and the appropriate per-kilo or per-item shipping rate for the order.

Weight-based example:

  • You set a per-shipment rate of 4.00 € and a per-kilo rate of 0.50 €.
  • A buyer purchases two products from you, a 25-kg television and a 1-kg DVD player.
  • Amazon calculates the total shipping charge to the customer as follows: 4.00 € + 0.50 € x (25 kg + 1 kg) = 17.00 €.

Item-based example:

  • You set per-shipment rate of 4.00 € and per-item rate of 1.00 €.
  • A buyer orders two products from you.
  • Amazon calculates the total shipping charge to the buyer as follows: 4.00 € + 1.00 € x 2 items = 6.00 €.

Price-Banded shipping

Price-banded shipping lets you create ranges or bands of order prices. Each price band has its own shipping rate. When a buyer purchases your products, Amazon reviews the total order value, identifies the band the total falls into, and then applies the shipping rate you specified for the price band.

Price-banded example:

  • You create price bands, such as:
Revenue band Shipping fee
0.00 - 50.00 € 10.00 €
50.01 - 80.00 € 5.00 €
80.01 - up € 0.00 €
  • A buyer places an order for a total of 75 €
  • Amazon calculates the total shipping charge to the buyer to be 5.00 €, based on your price-banding rates.

See how to use these options with shipping templates.

Weight-tiered shipping

Weight-tiered shipping lets qualified sellers create tiers by order weight for freight shipping. Each weight tier has its own shipping rate. When a buyer purchases your products, Amazon identifies the tiers from the total order weight and then applies the flat per-shipment rate and the shipping rate for each weight tier that you have specified.

How weight-tiers work:

  • You create weight tiers, such as:
    Weight tier Shipping fee
    0-100 kg 0.50 €/kg
    Greater than 100 kg 0.25 €/kg
    Flat rate (per order) 5 €
  • Example: A buyer places an order with a total weight of 150 kg

    (100 kg * 0.50 €) + (50 kg * 0.25 €) + 5 €

    Amazon calculates the total shipping charge to the buyer to be 67.50 € based on your tiered rates.
