We recommend that you simplify your shipping rates as much as possible. For example, you can offer free shipping to help increase sales and improve your chances of winning the Buy Box.
You can set your shipping rates in three ways:
When a buyer purchases your products, Amazon applies the flat per-shipment rate and the appropriate per-weight or per-item shipping rate for the order.
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.
|Revenue band||Shipping fee|
|$0.00 - 50.00||$10.00|
|$50.01 - 80.00||$5.00|
|$80.01 - up||$0.00|
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:
|Weight tier||Shipping fee|
|Greater than 100 lbs.||$0.25/lb.|
$5 + (100 lbs. * $0.50) + (100 lb.* $0.25)
Amazon calculates the total shipping charge to the buyer to be $80 based on your tiered rates.
