Introducing Sliding Scale Fees

Richard Obousy -

CitizenShipper is doing away with flat-rate booking fees! 

That is great for everyone that needs to ship large, high value, items.  As of today, CitizenShipper will apply fees based on a sliding scale. If you are interested, you can see how we apply the sliding scale fee below, but all fees will be calculated for you automatically when you click "Book Driver" based on your driver's bid amount. At that time, we will also present your fee rate so you can know exactly how much you saved. 

You will not see any fees until you've completely configured your entire shipment, including selecting your driver. When you are ready to get your stuff on the road you will be prompted to pay the fee allocated to your payment amount, automatically. 

Below are the fees and illustrate the percentage of the CitizenShipper fee based on the final price.

15.75% on the first $500

13.76% on $500-$1,000

11.66% on $1,001 to $2,000

7.15% on $2,001 to $5,000

No fees on anything over $5,000.
