In accordance with the standard practice of all international courier companies, shipping cost is taken at either actual weight or volumetric weight, whichever is greater. At vsHUB we adopt the same standard. Actual Weight is the weight of the package when put on a scale. Volumetric/Dimensional Weight is based on the size of the package. Example items that have a small Actual Weight, like Tote Handbag and Shoes, will have a larger volumetric/dimensional Weight. Therefore, we will calculate your shipping cost based on the volumetric weight. Please take note that the shipping costs is calculated based on your merchant/manufacturer’s packaging and not the courier package that arrives at your address.
