Why does my package cost so much to ship?

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

International carriers (like Asendia, UPS, USPS, etc.) calculate their shipping rates based on several factors including the parcel’s dimension, weight, and dimensional weight.

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 request our repackaging service to minimize your parcel’s dimensional weight (DIM weight). Please note MyMallBox charges a repackaging fee of US$3 per package.
