What are the service fees?

To help cover the costs of running Blackship, we charge service fees whenever a package is received, repacked, consolidated, and mailed out. We also charge a percentage-based fee on shipping rates to offset payment processing costs. The accumulated service fees for an individual package are can be found on the package detail view in your mailbox, accessible from your Blackship dashboard.

Service fees are billed along with shipment charges during shipping checkout.

Receiving fee

We add $1.00 every time a package is received in your mailbox. Cash-on-delivery (COD) packages will be rejected. If you need cash on delivery service, please use our White Rabbit Express buying service instead.

Repacking fee

We add $3.00 for each package repacked. Repacking is an optional service. We'll tell you when we recommend it for your packages. Oversize packages subject to additional fees.
