Automatic Subsidy Management

Automatic Subsidy Management

Applies to: Merchants that display Yakit rates in their eCommerce carts

Yakit allows you to control your costs via bulking in Yakit Master Boxes. If you are showing rates in your shopping cart via one of our eCommerce apps (Shopify, Miva, et al. or via our Y-Rate API), you may have seen a difference between the rate you show in your cart and your actual shipping rate. This is because the actual rate will depend on the exact dimensions of your shipments and how much you bulk.
