Understanding the Transparent Pricing of the WFS Fee Calculator

1. Standard Fulfillment Fee


  • Unit Weight: The item’s weight should be less than or equal to 150 lb. 
  • Longest Side: The longest side of the item should be less than or equal to 108 inches. 
  • Longest Side + Girth: The sum of the longest side and the girth (calculated as 2 times width plus 2 times height) should be less than or equal to 165 inches. 

Fee Calculation Information: 

  • For units weighing less than 1 lb., the unit weight is used directly to determine the fee. 
  • For units between 1 and 150 lb., either the unit weight or the dimensional weight (calculated as length × width × height divided by 139) is used, whichever results in a higher fee. 
  • An additional $0.25 per pound is added for packaging materials, and the final shipping weight is rounded up. 
  • For packages weighing 1 lb. or less, the fee is $3.45. 
  • For packages weighing 2 lbs., the fee is $4.95. 
  • For packages weighing 3 lbs., the fee is $5.45. 
  • For packages weighing between 4 and 20 lbs., the fee is $5.75 plus $0.40 for each additional pound beyond 4 lbs. 
  • For packages weighing between 21 and 30 lbs., the fee is $15.55 plus $0.40 for each additional pound beyond 21 lbs. 
  • For packages weighing between 31 and 50 lbs., the fee is $14.55 plus $0.40 for each additional pound beyond 31 lbs. 
  • For packages weighing 51 lbs. or more, the fee is $17.55 plus $0.40 for each additional pound beyond 51 lbs. 

Additional Fulfillment Fees for Standard Items

  • Apparel: If the item is an article of clothing, an additional fee of $0.50 is applied. 
  • Hazardous Materials: If the item contains chemicals, aerosols, pesticides, or batteries, an additional fee of $0.50 is applied. 
  • Retail Price Less than $10: If the item’s retail price is less than $10, an additional fee of $1 is applied. 
  • Oversize: Depending on the dimensions and size of the item,  

Oversize Criteria 1: For items with the longest side greater than 48″ and up to 96″, or the median side greater than 30″, or the longest side + girth greater than 105″ and up to 130″, an additional fee of $3 is applied. 

Oversize Criteria 2: For items with the longest side greater than 96″ and up to 108″, or the longest side + girth greater than 130″ and up to 165″, an additional fee of $20 is applied. 

Additionally, the unit weight starts at 90 lbs. when determining the fulfillment fee. This means that even if the actual weight of the item is lower, the fulfillment fee calculation begins from 90 lbs. This ensures that larger or heavier items are appropriately accounted for in the fee structure, maintaining fairness and accuracy in the fulfillment process. 

2. Big & Bulky Items


  • Unit Weight: The item weighs between 150 lbs. and up to 500 lbs. 
  • Longest Side: The longest side of the item exceeds 108 inches and up to 120 inches.

3. Fixed Monthly Storage Fee


  • Storage Fee: The storage fee represents the cost associated with storing items at a Walmart fulfillment center. It is determined based on the volume of the product being stored and the duration of storage. 
  • Unit Cubic Feet Calculation: The unit cubic feet are calculated by dividing the unit volume of the product in inches (length x width x height) by 1,728, which converts cubic inches to cubic feet. 

Fee Calculation Information: 

  • January–September: The fee is $0.75 per cubic foot per month for items stored during this period. 
  • October–December (Peak Season): For items stored for up to 30 days, the fee remains $0.75 per cubic foot per month. For items stored for more than 30 days, an additional fee of $1.50 per cubic foot per month is added.
