Before you start using BuckyDrop to kickstart your cross-border e-commerce business, we recommend understanding BuckyDrop's fee structure. This way, you can choose the services and features that suit your business model and sales strategy, avoiding unnecessary expenses. Additionally, understanding the fee structure will help you make informed decisions and better plan your business operations and resources to ensure a smooth start for your business.
Firstly, let's take a look at BuckyDrop's fee structure.
BuckyDrop's fees consist of two parts: fulfillment fees and value-added service fees. Fulfillment fees are the basic costs required for order fulfillment through BuckyDrop, while value-added service fees are additional charges for specific business needs.
When using BuckyDrop, fulfillment fees are essential. They include store service fees, order fulfillment fees, and shipping fees.
Additionally, the value-added service fees are optional and can be chosen based on your own needs. You have the flexibility to select value-added services according to your requirements.
In the process of using BuckyDrop, you only need to pay for the necessary fulfillment fees. As for additional value-added services, you can choose to purchase them based on your specific needs, avoiding unnecessary expenses.
Next, let's introduce the meaning and amount of each fee.
Store Service Fee
The Store Service Fee is the monthly fee that needs to be paid when connecting BuckyDrop with your Shopify or WooCommerce store.
Once successfully connected, you can fully leverage BuckyDrop to easily manage and handle your online store's business processes. You can enjoy a range of features and services such as product selection and listing, inventory and pricing updates, order synchronization, automatic order fulfillment, and automated package tracking updates. The Store Service Fee allows you to seamlessly integrate BuckyDrop with your online store, enabling you to operate your e-commerce business more efficiently!
How is the Store Service Fee charged?
This fee is charged at CN ￥199 per store per month.
For example, if you have a Shopify store and a WooCommerce store, both linked with BuckyDrop, the fixed Store Service Fee you need to pay each month would be CN ￥398 (CN ￥199 /store * 2 stores = CN ￥398).
Order Fulfillment Fee
The Order Fulfillment Fee covers all the basic operations performed on a package within the warehouse. It includes services such as standard product procurement, warehousing (inbound and outbound), basic packaging, and also provides 30 days of free storage. In simple terms, this fee covers a range of services from purchasing products to warehousing and finally shipping the packaged items, ensuring safe and efficient delivery to your customers.
By paying this fee once, you can enjoy all these services without the need for separate payments for each step. This eliminates the hassle of calculating and managing trivial costs, saving time and effort while ensuring smooth and worry-free business operations.
How is the Order Fulfillment Fee charged?
The Order Fulfillment Fee is charged at CN ￥9.9 per package.
For example, let's say a customer places an order for a T-shirt in your store. BuckyDrop will then purchase the T-shirt and store it temporarily in their warehouse. Subsequently, the T-shirt will be packaged using the most basic method and shipped out. After successful parcel declaration, BuckyDrop will automatically deduct the Order Fulfillment Fee of CN ￥9.9 from your account balance.
The Shipping Fee is the cost of transporting your packages from the BuckyDrop warehouse to the recipients' delivery address.
How is the Shipping Fee charged?
The Shipping Fee is based on the actual logistics transportation cost for each package. The specific fee may vary depending on factors such as the shipping route, destination, package weight, and volume. You can visit the Shipping Fee Calculator for estimation.
For example, let's say a customer places an order for a T-shirt and selects YunTu Clothing Express for logistics delivery to the United States. Based on estimation, the shipping fee for this package is approximately CN ￥50.
Value-added Service Fee
The Value-added Service Fee refers to the additional services and packages provided by BuckyDrop beyond the necessary fees mentioned above. These services include product labeling, tag replacement, branding service packages, product quality upgrade packages, and more. While these services require additional payment, they can help you better promote your products and brand, understand market demands, and improve sales performance.

How is the Order Fulfillment Surcharge charged?
The Order Fulfillment Surcharge is charged at CN ￥2 per item for each item exceeding 5 in the package.
For example, let's say a customer places an order for 7 T-shirts in your store. BuckyDrop handles the procurement and sends them to their warehouse for temporary storage. Subsequently, these T-shirts are packaged using the most basic method and shipped out. After successful parcel declaration, BuckyDrop will automatically deduct an Order Fulfillment Surcharge of CN ￥4 (CN ￥2 /item * 2 items = CN ￥4) from your account balance, in addition to the Order Fulfillment Fee of CN ￥9.9.
Package Overweight Surcharge
The Package Overweight Surcharge refers to the fee that will be charged if the weight of the package exceeds 2kg when using box packaging.
How is the Package Overweight Surcharge charged?
The Package Overweight Surcharge is calculated based on the portion of the package weight exceeding 2kg and is rounded to the nearest whole number. It is charged at CN ￥1.5 per kilogram.
