Choosing parcel size

You’ll have to choose the parcel size when uploading an item. To ensure the right choice:

  1. Pick one of the given parcel size options
  2. Tap See measurements and prices - it will appear next to your selected option

You’ll see shipping methods operating in your area, their prices, parcel size and weight requirements. The package of your item has to fit these requirements.

Important

Choose the correct parcel size when uploading, because it can’t be changed after a buyer makes a purchase.

A wrong choice might result in a returned package, extra shipping costs, a pickup fee, or even negative feedback from your buyer.

The available options are:

Parcel size 

Usually works for

Small (under 0.5 kg)*

Medium (0.5-1 kg)

Jeans, dresses, ballet flats, sweaters, handbags, towels and similar items

Large (1-2 kg)
