To address the planned June 1, 2018 ChinaPost shipping price increases and to help merchants avoid potential disruption to operations, Wish will be automatically increasing shipping prices for promoted products that were historically fulfilled with ChinaPost and related affected carriers*. Merchants may adjust their shipping prices for non-promoted products themselves at any time in Wish, either manually or through CSV upload or API.
These automatic shipping price increases will be made by Wish for all promoted products between May 29, 2018 00:00 UTC to June 2, 2018 00:00 UTC.
Merchants are encouraged to review and update their promoted products’ shipping prices to accurately reflect their actual shipping prices. Products that are detected to be fulfilled through shipping carriers/service levels that do not accurately reflect their updated shipping price may experience decreased impressions.
How will the automatic shipping price increase be determined?
The automatic shipping price increases will take into account the promoted product’s:
- median recorded weight (or average order value if there is no weight information recorded)
- Historical fulfillment through ChinaPost and related affected carriers*
- non-registered/registered service levels based on whether the product is subject to the Confirmed Delivery policy, which requires last-mile (registered) tracking
What are the related carriers affected by the planned June 1st, 2018 ChinaPost shipping price increases?
The related carriers affected include: ChinaAirPost, WishPost-ChinaPost, 4PX, AnjunExpress, CNEExpress, Chukou1, ECFirstClass, FlytExpress, OneWorldExpress, SFCService, SFInternational, Sinotrans, UBISmartParcel, Wanb, Yanwen, YunExpress.
Where can I view the previous shipping prices before the automatic update?
After the automatic shipping price increases are made, merchants may view their previous “shipping price before the automatic update” in their International Shipping Settings for an individual product, or contact their account manager for more information.
