Calculating cubic feet from centimeters

  • Multiply length x width x height in centimeters to get the volume.

  • Divide the volume by 28,317 cubic meters (30.5 x 30.5 x 30.5 cm = 28,372.6 cm3 divided by 28,317 = 1 cubic foot).

Example: A unit measuring 47 x 12 x 10 centimeters divided by 28,317 = 0.2 cubic feet.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How are monthly storage fees calculated?

A: Storage fees are based on the daily average volume (measured in cubic feet) for the space your inventory occupies in fulfillment centers. The volume measurement is based on unit size when scanned upon inbound at our fulfillment centers. Starting February 1, 2019 items stored in fulfillment centers will be charged a monthly storage fee. Monthly inventory storage fees typically are charged and invoiced during the first week of the following month for which the fee applies. For example, your storage fee for February, will be invoiced during the first week of March. The storage fee invoices will be available in Selling Center.

 

Q: How are monthly long-term storage fees calculated?

A: The long-term storage fee is in addition to the monthly inventory storage fee. Assessment is based on the date an item is received in the fulfillment center. On the last day of each month, Fulfilled by Souq (FBS) conducts an inventory cleanup. On this date, inventory that has been in fulfillment centers for 181 to 365 days incurs a long-term storage fee (LTSF) of 15 SAR per cubic foot. Items that have been in fulfillment centers for more than 365 days on the inventory cleanup date incur a long-term storage fee of 30 SAR per cubic foot. 

 

Q: What if I sell an item before the end of the month?

A: Storage fees are based on average daily volume, and if an item is sold before the end of the month it will only be charged for the number of days it was in our fulfillment center. Long term storage fees are calculated on the last day of each month, if an item is sold before the assessment date it will not be charged a long term storage fee.

 

Q: I don’t know the volume of my items, how will it be calculated?

A: Upon inbounding items into our fulfillment centers, we will scan each of your items. The cubic volume along with inventory aging details will be available in Selling Center at an ASIN level. 

Q: I have other specific questions regarding FBS fees, whom do I reach out to?

A: Please contact us at feeannouncefeedback@souq.com
