How much does e-commerce logistics cost at Happy Colis ?

At Happy Parcel, our logistics cost model is based on 1 € per product reference, per month - which includes ALL your fixed costs.

WHAT are the costs of preparation, customization, transportation, inventory, etc.? This is explained in detail below.

What is the Happy Parcel price structure like?

The cost of your logistics is divided as follows:


Your monthly subscription

The monthly subscription covers all fixed costs and ensures that you never receive unexpected invoices for storage, reception and sorting. The cost of this subscription is fixed at €1 per product reference, per month.

So, if you only have one product reference, does your monthly subscription really cost just €1? 

No. The minimum monthly subscription is €39 per month.This means that if you have between 1 and 39 references, it will cost you 39 euros per month. Beyond 39 references, it will cost you 1 € more per reference per month. So, if you have 240 product references, your monthly subscription will cost €240 per month.

Are there any exceptions? 

Yes, for very large items.

volume of 0 - 50 L
2€ / month
If the volume of your items is between 10 and 50L, you will need to add 2 € more per reference, per month.
stowed on a hanger
3€ / month
If your items need to be stored on hangers, you will need to add 3€ per reference, per month.
VOLUME OF 51 - 100 L
4€ / month
If the volume of your items is between 51 and 100L, you will need to add 4€ more per reference, per month.
If the volume of your items is more than 100L, we unfortunately cannot take care of these items.

What if you have 100 articles of the same reference? 

The logic remains the same, no matter how many items you entrust to us. You pay 1€ per referencewhether it's three... or 3,000!

The preparation of your parcels

The cost of preparing the parcels is based on the number of items per parcel " standard ". 

  • The preparation of the package and the inclusion of the first item are charged for 3,50€
  • All article additional inserted in the package adds 0,30 €.

Thus, a package containing 4 items will cost you 3.50 + 0.30 + 0.30 + 0.30, i.e. 4.40 € in preparation costs. You will not be charged for cardboard and packaging.

>> What is a standard package?

>> The logistics insurance offered by Happy Colis

Your monthly subscription includes insurance coverage " tous risques "This means that we offer you insurance against fire, damage or loss up to 50 000€ of stockwith a franchise of 2000€.

The calculation is based on the highest stock value of the month, every month - in contrast to an insurance " classique " which is calculated on an annual basis (and is usually based on the highest amount of the year!).

So, if you have €78,000 worth of stock over the month, your additional insurance will cost you €30 per month (i.e. 3 instalments of €10,000 x €10 per month) - since the first €50,000 worth of stock is covered free of charge by us.
