  • hi..In the profilt calculation, nit sure why you have not deducted shiping charges from the total value…59 Rs should also be deducted.
    secondly the GST return should also be calculated as part of return

    Please correct me in case I am wrong here

    • Dear Abninav
      Thanks for your valuable comments!

      As shipping charges is additionally added on selling price by Meesho.
      We also have not considered it in selling price, that’s why it has not been deducted.

  • The biggest issue with MEESHO for sellers is high returns and cancellations, and no orders without advertising on the site which brings down the profitability to almost 3 to 5%. So in the end its better to sell on Flipkart and Amazon with commission.
