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).

Example of a standard parcel

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 to ship this parcel via YouShop Economy it would cost you NZD$9.00 + NZD$3.50 = NZD$12.50 This would give you a saving of $4.75

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).

If you were to ship this parcel via YouShop Economy it would cost you NZD$9.00 + NZD$7.00 = NZD$16.00 This would give you a saving of $6.00

How to calculate volumetric weight

Volumetric weight (kg) = [length(cm) x breadth(cm) x height(cm)] / 5,000cm

Example
A parcel with dimensions 30cm x 15cm x 10cm has the volumetric weight of 900g (30 x 15 x 10 / 5000).
