The site is essentially free for transporters as long as the match fee is calculated into your quote. You only pay for what you transport, so if you don't use the site for a couple of months, then you aren't paying monthly fees for a service that you're not using.
Service providers are charged a base transaction fee for deliveries that are booked and completed through uShip. You must include your uShip fees in your total quote as part of your transport costs. When the delivery is booked, uShip collects all uShip fees directly from the shipping customer and your fee amount is credited to your account, offsetting your uShip transaction fees that are due to uShip.
Click here to view the tiered fee schedule which varies based on origin, destination, and commodity.
We've also included a nifty Quote Calculator you can use when placing your bids. All you need to do is input the amount you want to make in the Starting section, and make sure the Add uShip fee to calculate the Total Quote as seen by the customer check-box is selected. If you're curious about your fees on a particular transaction, just subtract the Starting amount from the Starting Total Bid amount, and you have your fee.
