ShipBob Growth Plan Pricing
At ShipBob, we offer simple pricing that consists of three core fees:
- $25 per inbound with accurately filled out WRO attached to shipment (includes 2 hours of receiving effort; additional time will cost $35/man hour)
- If your inventory arrives without a WRO or with an inaccurate WRO, your cost is $25 + $25 each day the Unidentified Receiving Order (URO) remains until it gets resolved.
- $5/month/bin (19in x 10in x 7in)
- $10/month/shelf (34in x 19in x 19in)
- $40/month/pallet (48in x 40in x 54in)
- Only one SKU per location (bin, shelf, or pallet) is allowed.
- These costs are prorated (i.e., if your product is stored on a pallet and sells out halfway through the month, you will be invoiced $20 in storage costs, not $40).
3. Total Fulfillment Cost an all-in-one fee for picking, packing, packaging materials, and a shipping label for each order shipped) includes:
- 5 picks per order</a (and then $0.20 for the sixth pick and every pick after)

Can I send inventory from my manufacturer/supplier/Amazon directly to you?
All incoming inventory must have a matching Warehouse Receiving Order in the ShipBob dashboard and have a physical copy of the WRO on each box. Failure to do so or sending unlabelled products will result in a $25/day/package fee on your account and void the 5-day receiving SLA. Learn more about Unidentified Receiving Orders here.
