Step 4: Estimate your storage requirements.

We've strategically designed our storage and inventory system to assign SKUs to storage locations according to size, quantity and turnover rate. The result is reduced costs for you. Also, each product SKU will need its own unique storage location to pick items accurately.

Step 5: Account for one-off costs

Why pay for additional services that you won't ever use? Our innovative approach to fulfillment only charges you for what you use. However, if you ever need additional assistance, our highly trained fulfillment team is there to support any and all of your needs. Here are some of the tasks we can assist with:

Special Projects

Our most common other fees are special projects. This includes tasks like, counting inventory, repackaging products, quality control, bagging products, or any other generic task not a part of your plan.

$45/hr per person

Container Unloading

If you are expecting a container in which the cargo is palletized, there is no receiving fee. If the cargo is "free loaded" and we need to off-load and palletize it for you, the following fees apply:

$300 per 20' container $500 for a 40’ container

Minimum Pick and Pack Fee

We have no restrictions when it gets to the size of clients we are willing to work with, but there is a cost associated with running each account on our platform and the support we provide. That's why we have a minimum monthly pick fee. It starts at $250/month or equals your storage fees. In other words, if you are paying $400/month in storage, your minimum pick and pack fee would be $400. If you don't reach that with your pick and pack fees, you would pay the difference between the two.

What are batches?

When fulfilling subscription boxes or crowdfunding orders, we set up an assembly line to kit “batches” of orders.

A batch is a unique set of orders that have exactly the same combination of items in them.

In order for the assembly line to be effective, there needs to be at least 50 orders in each batch. If not, there is a $15 batching fee to compensate for the lack of orders in each batch.

Do you offer gift messages and how much does it cost?

Yes! ShipMonk has gift message options that allow you to easily include messages and bestow "gift status" to any order.

Here are the 3 options to choose from:

  1. Include gift message on the Packing Slip. - Free
  2. Include gift message on a blank 4x6 card provided by ShipMonk. ($1)
  3. Include gift message on a custom 4x6 card, provided by you - $0.75 + insert pick fee. 

*Gift messaging needs to be supported by your shopping cart.

Do you charge for receiving inventory?

No. ShipMonk offers free receiving for our customers if they follow carefully prepared guidelines created by our team. We are always here to make things easier, so we will help you prepare your shipment to comply with our receiving guidelines.

Can you handle fragile products? Does it cost extra?

Our Happiness Engineers will examine your products and suggest custom packaging based on on your specific needs. If you have pre-exsiting requirements, just let us know and we'll accomodate those as well. We do charge an additional 30 cents per item for bubble pouches or other fragile packaging.

What is the Minimum Pick and Pack Fee?

To justify the amount of time and energy we put into each project, we have a monthly minimum pick and pack fee of $250. If you don’t reach this minimum with your picking fees, we will add the rest to your monthly invoice. Let’s say your picking fees are $160, and the minimum is $250. That means you would have to pay the $90 difference. We don’t do this to put pressure on you, but it’s a fair assurance that your projections are honest. Your minimum monthly fee usually equals the storage charges per month.

Do you offer storage insurance?

When you store your inventory at ShipMonk, you have two options to insure your product:

1) You add our location to your insurance policy
2) You choose to waive inventory insurance

Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages. Depending on the setup of your business and the value of your product, you can decide which option is best for your business.

What qualifies as a "special project?"

A special project is a non-standard task that can still include everything from kitting & assembly to labeling or inventory reconciliation. All special projects should be submitted to your Happiness Engineer, so they can define the scope and provide a quote for the project prior to execution.
