Why does my package cost so much to ship?

Home > FAQs > Why does my package cost so much to ship?

International carriers (like DHL, USPS, UPS, etc.) calculate their shipping rates based on either the actual weight or dimensional/volumetric weight.
Dimensional/volumetric weight (DIM weight) takes a package’s size into account.

Imagine you ordered a really large poster. The poster weighs 1 pound, but it only fits in a 20x20x20 box. In this case, carriers will charge you for the size of the box (20x20x20) and not its weight.

If you think your items could fit into a smaller box, you can always request a repack through the website.
