What does my flat rate include?

Beware the hidden fees that gobble up your margins.

Sneaky hidden fees are the absolute worst. We want to help small businesses thrive. That’s why Sendle keeps shipping simple, affordable, and transparent. No nasty surprises!

The danger of hidden costs


When it comes to shipping, many pricing models rely on luring you in with low base costs, only to load up on hidden fees and add-ons once you’re committed. In this way, shipping is kind of like a burrito – a food joint will often state a low burrito price. You’re hungry; you’re on a budget. It’s an offer you can’t refuse. Then you realise that guac, salsa, and cheese all cost extra. So, what does the listed price actually get you? It’s hardly even a burrito at that point!

If the food analogy doesn’t work for you, consider purchasing flights – you just want to book the airfare and get out of there; suddenly you’re hit with a barrage of fees and extras, like seat choice or cancellation insurance, many of which are unavoidable. So annoying!

Flying Money Angel

These little costs can ruin your day. It’s the lack of transparency as much as the costs themselves that lead to frustration. When you’re planning budgets for a small business with delicate margins, it can have crippling consequences.
