Billable Weight

Billable weight is calculated as the greater of actual weight and dimensional weight. Actual weight is the weight of the fully packaged shipment in pounds (scale weight). Dimensional weight is calculated by multiplying the length by width by height of each package in inches and dividing the total by 166; ((L*W*H/166)). When the dimensional weight exceeds the actual weight; charges may be assessed based on the dimensional weight. Shipments whose billable weight exceeds the max allowable weight or dimensions rating limit will be returned to sender at sender’s expense (See oversized package detailed below).

Oversized Packages

Oversized Packages are calculated as Length + Girth exceeding 84 inches. Girth is calculated by measuring the total length in inches all the way around the parcel on the longest sides. In other words, the length and girth of a package is length plus (2 times the height) plus (2 times the width); (L+2(W+H)). If the dimension includes a fraction, a fraction of one-half or greater will be rounded up to the next whole number; less than one-half will be rounded down to the next whole number. Oversized Packages are not supported by eBay international standard delivery. Shipments which are oversized will be returned to sender at sender’s expense.
