How Quotes are Calculated

All shipping quotes are generated in real time and displayed are based on the following factors:


  • Origin
  • Destination
  • Size & Weight of Item
  • Parcel type (Satchel or Other)


Shippit's engine will automatically determine the carrier's shipping restrictions and return a quotation based on that criteria. For example, most carriers compare cubic volume and dead weight and charge for the higher of the two - Shippit will automatically return a quote based on this rule.


Deeper discounts are applied to rates based on the Shippit plan tier you are subscribed to. For more information on our subscription plans, please click here for further information.
