Here’s how to read the tables above
The rates of Logistics via bol:
Include: Pick & pack costs, shipping, customer service, returns
Exclude: VAT, commission, any surcharges for specific items, and labelling bSKU. See surcharges and additional services.
The number of items in stock at the fulfilment center is counted per day, and these stock charges are charged per day. In the run-up to the holidays, we work with an increased rate (peak rate) for the storage of items during the months of November and December.
Cost per item and cost per shipment
The Logistics via bol rates per ordered item are based on an order with one of your items. If a customer orders several of your items at once, we make sure this is shipped in the most efficient and convenient way for you. Therefore, you pay relatively less per item and you ship most economical. To calculate your benefit, the rate is split into 2 parts: an amount per item and an amount for delivery.
Surcharges and additional services
For some items, you pay a surcharge with Logistics via bol. You can also use additional services with Logistics via bol.
- Surcharge special product category
These are fragile items, items with an expiry date and all items within the main categories of watches, sunglasses, bags/leather goods, baby & toddler clothing or clothing & shoes. Within these categories, the return rate is higher than average or, in the case of THT and fragile items, extra care is taken to process the order. To cover the additional costs, we charge a surcharge for this. The surcharge is charged per handling. It is therefore possible that the surcharge is applied more than once. For example, in the case of a fragile item with a THT date.
Please note: ‘Items containing hazardous substances’ has been added per 1 January 2024 to the product categories for which we charge a surcharge. We do this because these articles require an additional safety process and specific storage (bunker). Read more about Lvb with hazardous substances.
- Have your items stickered
For a fee of €0.19 per item, we provide Logistics with bol labels (bSKU stickers) on each of your items. These labels are needed to distinguish your stock from that of other partners and bol stock. If you have indicated to apply stickers yourself and have not done so, the rate is €0.23 per item. This is because these stickers are compulsory.
- Have your (unsellable) stock recalled or destroyed
If you want to recall or destroy an item, you will be charged €0.42 per item (excluding VAT). Would you like to return items to a specific address? If so, shipping costs will be added to the €0.42 per item (excluding VAT). See table below.
Regularly check the dimensions of your items
Regularly check whether the items you sell via Logistics via bol have been placed in the correct rate group. You can find the rate group on the all-in-1 invoice.
