How the calculation works?
Merchant are to bear the first “kg” of every parcel, that would be RM 5.00, the subsequent weight will be bear by the customer. The fee that customer bear Lazada will credit back to the seller.
When Lazada charge seller on shipping fee, that would be the exact shipping fee from the courier.
A parcel that weight 2kg, KL to KL, seller bear the 1st kg- RM 5.00, the 2nd kg customer will bear RM1.60.
Thus when Lazada charge merchant, shipping fee will be (-)RM 6.60, and there will be a shipping fee credit (+)RM 1.60.
-RM6.60+RM1.60= RM5.00, in the end, seller will actually pay RM 5.00 only
