I quit selling large items~the shipping cost outweighed the value. Depending on the item it’s easier & more profitable to sell parts from it than to sell the whole thing.

Welcome to the Bonanza Community!!

We recommend that you contact USPS, UPS, Or Fedex, ect as they can provide you with an estimate as to the cost to ship this package.

OUCH, that size will be extremely costly since PO rolled out DIM (dimension) weight charges in 2018. I dont think Bonz allows for dimensions put in for larger boxes (at least I havnt see it). They have an option for large boxes but dont know what they use for the dimensions of a box.

I stopped selling things that would go in a large box because it cost more than the items now.
You can get a ballpark figure of costs on the USPS site but it also depends on distance (zip) so you got to checkout all zones and maybe take an average. Bonanza only calculates Priority rates (I have been asking for YEARS that they also allow for Parcel because it is a bit cheaper) and it falls on deaf ears here.

We’ve found using for our labels to be most useful. Don’t waste a second calling one of the carriers for a quote – that’d be absurd.

For a box of that size, you might find UPS or FedEx offer better rates than USPS. It’s going to be very expensive whichever way you do it, however. Makes a huge difference once you go over the 12×12×12 volume…
