Volume Fee on Jet Orders

Depending on how you have your Jet Engine Rules configured, you might see, at some point, something in your Jet order called a “Volume Fee”. This is a bit of a misnomer, as it’s not a fee that is being charged by Jet, nor is it a fee that is being charged by GeekSeller.

This Volume Fee will only appear for sellers who have created a rule to provide discounts for bulk purchases.

For example, let’s say you sell desk novelties, like stress toys. You then set a rule within the Jet Engine that states if a person buys 100 or more, you will provide them with a 10% discount.

At some point, a buyer purchases 105 stress toys, at a value of $2.00 each. Their normal total bill would be $210.00.

However, since you provided the option for a bulk or volume discount, their total would instead be $189.00 ($200.00 minus 10%, which is $21.00).

On your Jet order within the GeekSeller interface, you will see a Volume Fee for $21.00, and that the buyer’s total is $189.00.

What the Volume Fee is, then, is actually the discount the buyer receives for purchasing your products in bulk and falling under the parameters you’ve set as a seller within your Jet Engine Rules.

To sum up, if you see a Volume Fee on a Jet order, it’s really just the bulk discount the buyer is receiving for purchasing a total of items from you that triggers the bulk rules you’ve set within the Jet Engine. Since this amount is what is not being paid by the buyer, neither Jet nor GeekSeller receive any portion of this fee.
