ShipMonk’s standard pick and pack fee apply to products under 5 lbs. Items weighing over 5 lbs will incur a weight-based surcharge. Items that are 5lbs and greater require more handling to pick the product as well as a larger packing station and we have a weight-surcharge in place to account for the additional labor required to ship these items. The surcharge will be added to your standard pick fees for both the first pick and any additional picks in the order. The fee will vary based on the product(s) weight. You can see a breakdown of the surcharges below:

Example 1: If you are shipping a 24lb kettlebell, you would pay the standard pick fee plus a surcharge of $4.00 

Example 2: If you sell 8oz bottles of lotion and also offer them in a master case of 48 units, the fee for shipping the 8oz bottle would be your standard pick fee but the master case, since it weighs 24lbs, would incur a $4.00 surcharg
