Double-Check for Peak Surcharges From Shipping Carriers

Double-Check for Peak Surcharges From Shipping Carriers

As you plan for your Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales this holiday season please be aware that shipping carriers are expected to add peak surcharges to shipping costs.

This affects USPS, UPS, and DHL. Peak surcharges are being applied due to the increased volume of shipments and are applied when shipping labels are purchased.⁣


Here is what you can expect:⁣

USPS: Additional $.24 - $.40 depending on service (Effective Oct 18th - December 27th.)⁣
UPS: Surcharges do not apply fo Shopify Shipping⁣
DHL Express: $.09 per lb (Currently in effect)⁣

Make sure to double-check shipping charges based on the service you use in your planning process so you are not surprised when the busy holiday season starts and you have to cover the additional costs to ship your packages.
