Note: This is for bulk ordering or items that are too big for my luggage. This service can be quite expensive due to the shipping fee. We charge handling fee only. There are no other extra charges aside from possible extra actual/volumetric weight fee charges. The handling fee is 40% due to the amount of manual work.

Order = Product fees + 40% + Delivery Fee (Actual/Volumetric Weight; whichever higher)

For larger items/parcel, the volumetric weight would most likely be used if the size is big but the weight is lighter. Please read the tab “Volumetric Weight” below for more information.

Volumetric Weight

The volumetric weight, also known as Dimensional weight, is used by courier services around the world to quote the actual space that a parcel or package a transportation vehicle or a storage area.

It basically means the larger the size of your parcel, the higher the volumetric weight. However, the courier companies would charge postage fee based on which one is ‘heavier’

Usually, smaller items like a bottle of toner or makeup remover water would be charged by its weight rather than it’s the volumetric weight. Whilst smaller objects have a lesser chance of being shipped with volumetric weight, there may still be some possibilities if the entire package is light in weight yet large in size.

For larger items, it would be even more expensive due to the dimensional size of the item. Here’s an example: The Kakao plushie below is being given the dimensions at about 42*57*33cm and actual weight at around 1130g. When you multiply the dimensions of the plushie together and divide by 5000, you will get around 15.8kg volumetric weight. It’s a sudden hike in ‘weight’ charges mainly because it takes up more space than it actually weights.

Volumetric Weight are calculated by = (Length x Width x Height)cm / 5000
** The number used for division may not apply for every postal office.
