Shipping calculator at Bonanza is adding a new shipping calculator that will carry a $0.20 fee per listing.

Sellers can continue to use Bonanza's current shipping calculator. Those who want to use the new calculator must pay a fee of 20 cents per item listed - the charge will be included in sellers' monthly bills. Sellers will be allowed to incorporate the shipping calculator cost into the shipping estimate itself, adding 20 cents to the buyer's estimate so the seller doesn't pay the cost.

Bonanza is waiting for final approval before putting the new calculator into production.
