Work out the cost of international postage for your YouShop parcel and how volumetric weight is calculated.
International postage is calculated as NZD$12.50 per parcel, plus NZD$4.75 per 500g. The minimum chargeable weight is 500g and is charged in 500g increments thereafter. The chargeable weight of your parcel will be based on the greater of its actual weight or volumetric weight (charged in 500g increments).
International postage excludes any GST, duty and customs clearance costs that may be payable on arrival in New Zealand.
Weight of your YouShop parcel
The chargeable weight of your parcel will be based on the greater of its actual weight or volumetric weight (charged in 500g increments).
For a parcel with an actual weight of 500g and a volumetric weight of 250g, the chargeable weight is 500g the YouShop international postage charge would be NZD$12.50 + NZD$4.75 = NZD$17.25.
If you were sending something with an actual weight of 300g and a volumetric weight of 800g the chargeable weight is 800g and the YouShop international postage would be NZD$12.50 + NZD$9.50 = NZD$22.00. (Due to the weight charges being in 500g increments).
How to calculate volumetric weight
Volumetric weight (kg) = [length(cm) x breadth(cm) x height(cm)] / 5,000cm
A parcel with dimensions 30cm x 15cm x 10cm has the volumetric weight of 900g (30 x 15 x 10 / 5000).
