Method for calculating shipping rates

Item or weight-based shipping

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

Weight-based example:

  • You set a per-shipment rate of R$ 4,00 and per-kilo rate of R$ 0,50 .
  • A buyer purchases two products from you, a 25-kilo television and a 1-kilo book.
  • Amazon calculates the total shipping charge to the customer as follows: R$ 4,00 + R$ 0,50 x (25 kg + 1 kg) = R$ 17,00.

Item-based example:

  • You set per-shipment rate of R$ 4,00 and per-item rate of R$ 1,00.
  • A buyer orders two products from you.
  • Amazon calculates the total shipping charge to the buyer as follows: R$ 4,00 + R$ 1,00 x 2 items = R$ 6,00.

Price-Banded shipping

Price-Banded shipping enables you to create ranges or bands of order prices. If you want to offer a Price-Banded shipping model, you need to create price bands, such as R$ 0 to R$ 25, R$ 25,01 to R$ 50,00, and R$ 50,01+. 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
R$ 0,00 - 50,00 R$ 10,00
R$ 50,01 - 80,00 R$ 5,00
R$ 80,01 - up R$ 0,00
  • A buyer places an order for a total of R$ 75
  • Amazon calculates the total shipping charge to the buyer to be R$ 5,00, based on your price-banding rates.

Override Shipping Settings

Shipping Override files are not supported on the new Shipping Settings. Any shipping overrides you've set up in the past will no longer be enforced, and new Shipping Override files and feeds will not be processed. Sellers should use multiple shipping templates to configure different shipping settings for different SKUs instead.

Note: External applications that send Shipping Overrides feeds to Amazon's systems will need to be updated to support the new MerchantShippingGroupName field in the Product XML feed. You can use this field to assign SKUs to a specific shipping template.
