Flipkart charges a small amount for every successful sale transaction which is called the fixed fee. A successful sale transaction is an order which has been successfully delivered to the customer. In case a customer returns the order, this fee is still charged. However, no fee is charged in case of a courier return. Also, this fee varies based on the order item value irrespective of the category and seller tier.
To Calculate this fee the rate card is given below:
Since Calculations have to be done for each order to verify the fee charged by Flipkart, it becomes very tedious and time-consuming to calculate the fee for every order daily. This is why Cointab has made a system that makes this verification task easy. Cointab has a rate card of its own to make these calculations easier. This rate card is based on Flipkart’s rate card.
The rate card is as below:
When the system receives the order data it allocates each order according to its price to the rate card and calculates the fixed fee for that order.
The system gathers the data like this for each order and reports the Fee charged by Flipkart, the correctly calculated fee, and then shows the difference as in how much Flipkart has overcharged the fixed fee for that particular order.
This individual order data is then automatically compiled by the system and gives an output as a whole as shown below.
The system compiles all the individual data and gives this result.
