Set your delivery rates

We recommend that you simplify your delivery rates as much as possible. For example, you can offer free delivery to help increase sales and improve your chances of winning the Buy Box.

You can set your delivery rates in three ways:

Item/weight-based delivery

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

Weight-based example:

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

Item-based example:

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

Price-banded shipping

Price-banded delivery lets you create ranges or bands of order prices. Each price band has its own delivery rate. When a buyer purchases your products, Amazon reviews the total order value, identifies which band the total falls into and then applies the delivery 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 and over £0.00
  • A buyer places an order for a total of £75
  • Amazon calculates the total delivery charge to the buyer to be £5.00, based on your price-banding rates.

See how to use these options with delivery templates.

Weight-tiered shipping

Weight-tiered shipping lets qualified sellers create tiers by order weight for freight shipping. Each weight tier has its own delivery 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 delivery 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.
