Since shipping costs are calculated based on the greater of actual weight or dimensional weight, consolidating your packages will cut shipping cost by combining multiple packages into a single package.
When Consolidation is requested, we take all items out from the outer package box and combine them into one box to minimize the dimensional weight of your package.
Repackaging an original single box to a smaller box may also reduce your shipping cost. For example, the merchant might send a product in a shipping box that is much bigger than it needs to be. Putting the product in a smaller box is likely to lower the shipping cost.
