Updating your Marketplace Shipping Rates & Methods

If you haven’t reviewed or adjusted your shipping rates in a while, it’s a good time to get those fine-tuned before the upcoming busy season. Check out how and where to update your rates for Monsoon supported marketplaces below:


To adjust your rates for eBay US or eBay UK in Monsoon, go to the Settings > eBay > Shipping Rules. You may adjust your economy, standard, expedited, and international rates here, with options such as Free Shipping, Flat rate, or Weight based.

For more information on setting shipping rates for eBay, see the webhelp article here.


To adjust your rates for Amazon (all regions), go to your Amazon Seller account and navigate to Account > Shipping Settings. Here you may adjust, add, or delete shipping templates. You can change your standard and international rates as well as one-day, two-day, expedited, etc. Monsoon supports both weight based and per item rates.

If you have created a new shipping template in Seller Central, be sure to also add that template in Monsoon. You will then need to apply it to applicable items within your Amazon shipping rules Settings > Amazon > Amazon Region > Shipping Rules.

If you’ve adjusted any of your Standard rates in Seller Central, be sure to also update those rates in their corresponding templates in Monsoon.
