2020 Fee Changes
FedEx, UPS, and USPS have increased their shipping prices for 2020 as follows:
- FedEx Ground and Express prices will increase by 4.9%.
- UPS Ground and Air prices will increase by 4.9%.
- USPS Priority prices will increase by 4.1%.
Our goal at Deliverr is to shield our sellers from the impact of these increases and to incorporate their feedback in our new pricing. As a result, with our 2020 pricing, we estimate that over 84% of units fulfilled by Deliverr will experience no increase in fulfillment costs. Some will even decrease.
All fee changes will go into effect on March 1st, 2020.
We will lower the effective storage costs for many of our sellers by removing per-SKU storage minimums. We are also transitioning our base storage rates to a seasonal model to better reflect demand for warehouse space:
- From January to September, the monthly storage rate will be $0.72 per cubic foot.
- From October to December, the monthly storage rate will be $2.40 per cubic foot.
We are increasing multi-unit discounts across a wide range of products and services. As a result, 27% of units fulfilled will see a decrease in multi-unit fulfillment cost, and 72% of units fulfilled will see no change. For 1% of the units which constitute heavier and bulkier items, we are removing multi-unit discounts to reflect the costs involved.
2 Day Fulfillment Fees
Our investments in efficiency improvements have allowed us to limit increases to the popular Walmart 2 Day and Shopify 2 Day fast tag programs. The majority of prices for these two programs are unchanged.
For orders that are not through the Walmart 2 Day and Shopify 2 Day programs, we have less control over shipping costs and hence, fulfillment prices will increase on average by 28.5%. If your account has a significant number of orders that will be impacted by these price increases, your client success manager will reach out with a plan to transition those orders to Walmart or Shopify 2 Day programs.
