Price adjustments

A shipping label price adjustment occurs when you purchase a shipping label and the shipping carrier determines that you've provided inaccurate information that results in an incorrect shipping label price. After you ship your order, the correct shipping label price is verified by the shipping carrier. If your carrier determines that your shipment needs a price adjustment, then the adjustment appears in the order timeline. You receive a charge on your next payout. Your package might still be delivered when there is an adjustment.

Price adjustments are a standard industry practice and most shipping carriers follow this standard. To avoid price adjustments, verify that you are entering the correct information when you are purchasing a shipping label.

The price adjustments can occur for Markets Pro orders for the following reasons:

  • The package weight specified on the label doesn't match the actual weight of shipment.
  • The package dimensions specified on the label don't match the actual dimensions of shipment.
