A. How is My PlusBase Order Profit Calculated?

The profit of each order is calculated using the following formula:

Profit = Revenue - Total base cost - Shipping cost - Handling fee

In which:

Revenue = Order subtotal - Total discount (if any) + Tip (if any) - Tax (if any) + Shipping
Shipping = The actual order shipping fee that the Buyer paid to the Seller
Shipping cost = The total shipping cost of the order that is set in the product's quotation in Catalog and Private request
Total base cost = Sum of [Base cost of each product x Quantity]
Handling fee = Payment fee + Processing fee
Payment fee = Order total x 3%
Processing fee = [Revenue - Total base cost - Shipping cost - Payment fee] x 4%

Tax is only included if the setting for Show all prices with tax included is enabled in Settings > Taxes.

B. How to View My Order Profit

On PlusBase store admin, go to Orders > All Orders. Click on the order you want to view the order profit to be directed to its detail page.


Scroll down to Your profit section, click Show calculation to see the details on how your order profit is calculated. Here, you can quickly track the total profit of your order, including the revenue, basecost, and other handling fees (payment fee and processing fee).


In case of cancellation or refund, all reasons will be logged in order's timeline.


The refund amount in your profit calculation in the order detail includes a refund for the order subtotal and the order shipping fee.
The refund amount for customers includes a payment fee. Therefore, it will be higher than the refund amount in your profit calculation.
The amount that is collected from PlusBase orders will be moved to Available soon which will become Available to payout after 24 hours since the order placement. Please refer to this article to understand more about your ShopBase Balance and know how to request a payout from PlusBase to your PingPong or Payoneer account.
With orders showing signs of fraud or orders that need to be confirmed by the customers due to their order's update or other reasons, the amount of that order will be held and will be moved to Available to payout later.
You should request a payout during business hours for the earliest approval.
