Spainbox pricing is purposely aligned with the needs of the fastgrowing business.

It is designed to be simple, transparent, and to require minimal oversight or management on your part.
Our pricing consists of three elements:
1. Warehuse Storage fees. Price associated with how much space is used in warehouses and unique products stored.
2. Order Handling fees – Price associated with the order volume of picking and handling items
3. Shipping cost – Price of shipping your products to customers, distributors, or suppliers.
Warehouse Storage fees
Calculating your storage cost will tell you the monthly price of storage space and the number of different products (SKUs) will not increase the storage fees. We calculate the storage fee based only in the number of space required at our warehouse measured in cubic meters.
The cost of increasing the number of unique items you sell, the savings obtained from improved order volume, or simply the cost of shipping a product to a customer in a specific location.
Order fulfillment Handling fees
Spainbox offers volume-based discounts without the need for a contract. Handling rates adjust as you ship more orders throughout the month, rewarding high-volume activity. Special pricing is available for customers who do want contract pricing, or for higher-volume merchants. If this applies to you, contact our sales team at Spainbox

With this tiered pricing system, the need to accurately predict order volume is eliminated. When a higher order volume is reached, the pricing automatically moves to the next tier and lets you take advantage of the volume savings.
For example, let’s take a hypothetical scenario where there are less than 50 orders by month, which has 2 items in the same order. You will pay 2.10 € for the first full item pick, and 0.69 € for the additional item pick, making the handling charge for the order 2.79 €.
If you have more than 50 orders by month, and also containing 2 items. Because it is in the next volume tier, you will pay 1.64 € for the first full item pick, and 0.58 € for the additional item, with the total handling charges being 2.22 €
