What is a shipping surcharge?

A shipping surcharge is an additional fee added to the shipping cost by the carrier. The surcharges are standard fees charged by UPS, USPS, Fedex relating to certain adjustments, including but not limited to: weight, dimensions, residential delivery fees, returns, and fuel surcharges. Surcharges are not automatically assessed at the purchase of the label but rather after the delivery of the shipment. Though common during peak season, surcharges can be incurred year round.
