Walmart Fulfillment Services fees
Our program fee structure is simple and straightforward with no signup or monthly subscription fees
Fulfillment fee based on item weight
For units that weigh less than 1 lb., use the unit weight to determine the fee. If your unit weight is over 1 lb., use the unit weight or dimensional weight, whichever is greater. The dimensional weight is equal to the unit volume in inches (length x width x height) divided by 139.
|4 lb.-20 lb.||$5.75 plus $0.40 for each lb. > 4 lb.|
|21–30 lb.||$15.55 plus $0.40 for each lb. > 21 lb.|
|31–50 lb.*||$14.55 plus $0.40 for each lb. > 31 lb.|
|51–150 lb.*||$17.55 plus $0.40 for each lb. > 51 lb.|
*Heavier items have a lower fulfillment fee because they’re shipped using only ground transportation and may require more than two days for delivery.
Add 0.25 lb. for packaging materials to calculate the final shipping weight. Round up to the nearest pound. Add $0.50 for apparel and hazmat items.
Add the following fees to the base fulfillment fee.
|Maximum side > 48" OR
Median side > 30" OR
Length + girth* > 105"
|Maximum side > 96"
OR Length + girth* > 130"
If the longest side of your item exceeds 96" or if the length + girth exceeds 130", the shipping weight starts at 90 lb.
*Note: Girth = 2*(width + height).
Fixed monthly storage fee*
The storage fee is the cost of storing your items at a Walmart fulfillment center. It’s based on the volume of the product being stored and the length of time. Unit cubic feet is equal to the unit volume in inches (length x width x height) divided by 1,728.
|Length of time||Fee|
|January–September||$0.75 per cubic foot per month|
|$0.75 per cubic foot per month for items stored for fewer than or up to 30 days. Add $1.50 per cubic foot per month for items stored for more than 30 days.|
|>12 months||$7.50 per cubic foot per month|
*Price is based on a 30-day calendar month.
