Calculate the shipping weight

Shipping weight is determined by the unit weight or dimensional weight, depending on size tier and which is greater. Dimensional weight is equal to the unit volume (length x width x height) divided by 139. The dimensional weight for oversize items assumes a minimum width and height of 2 inches.

For core FBA and dangerous goods, Amazon will use dimensional weight when it is greater than unit weight for all large standard-size units and all small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize units. Small standard-size units and special oversize units will use unit weight. This change will also apply to units fulfilled through Multi-Channel Fulfillment and Small and Light.

Core FBA and dangerous goods

(If less than 1 lb, round up to nearest whole ounce. If 1 lb or over, round up to nearest whole pound.)

Small standard size Unit weight

Special oversize Unit weight

For apparel, for small standard-size units and large standard-size units weighing more than 0.75 lb and all small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize units, Amazon uses dimensional weight when it is greater than the unit weight. Small standard-size units and large standard-size units 0.75 lb and under use unit weight.
