How does Massdrop calculate shipping charges?

There are many factors involved in determining the cost of shipping, including the following:


  • “Ship from” address
  • “Ship to” address
  • Value of the item
  • Weight of the item
  • Does the item contain a hazardous material (lithium batteries, liquids, aerosols, knives)?
  • Courier and service being used


We do our best to provide our members with the lowest shipping rates possible and are always negotiating for better rates and more shipping options.


Please note: Shipping items containing hazardous materials requires the use of a courier that’s certified to transport such materials. These couriers are more expensive because they require proper certification, additional labeling, and documentation. Couriers impose additional fees for this service.
