It is important to address your shipments correctly. Make sure all duties and taxes are prepaid on international shipments. If you must add a name to a shipment, always use "Inbound Manager"; never use an employee's name. Shipments arriving with duties due will either be returned or, if paid, a 10% handling charge will be added. For international shipments, Shipvine is the Ultimate Consignee and not the responsible party.

Common Q&A


Q: I'm a small shipper. Do you have any minimums?

A: Yes, there is a $250/month minimum spend per month; however, we do offer a ramp up period. The minimum includes all inbounds, storage, fulfillment and shipping. 


Q: If I send 5,000 units how much are the receiving fees?

A: If you follow all the guidelines above the fee is $0


Q: How much is expedited check-in?

A: The fee is based on current demand in the warehouse and changes from day to day and hour to hour. It starts at around $25 for smaller shipments. 


Q: The storage fee seems high for my larger products, why is that?

A: Storage is based on size, and we shy away from larger items. We specialize in small to medium sized consumer goods. If you have large bulky items, we might not be the best fit for you. 


Q: Does the fee include the noon cut-off?

A: Yes, our fulfillment rate includes the noon cut off for most consumer orders. Some restrictions do apply and it's not guaranteed. 


Q: Does the fulfillment fee include shipping?

A: No, the cost of shipping is extra based on the service selected.


Q: Can I use my own UPS, FedEx, USPS, or DHL account?

A: No, part of our service is providing you great shipping rates across multiple services. You are allowed to use 3rd party billing occasionally or for drop shipping.


Q: I'm a kickstarter, do you do one time shipments?

A: Yes, we can do one-time shipments on shipments of 1,000 orders or more. The only difference is we require prepayment. Contact us to learn more.
