I have been trying to come up with a good solution for online sales shipping costs. I don't really sell much online. most of my sales are through a gallery or festivals. Every time I do sell online, it seems I lose out on the shipping costs. For example I recently sold a 15" chip and salsa platter the customer wanted shipped to Texas ( I am in Ohio). I took the platter to UPS had them weight it, they advised how to pack it, gave me an aprox quote of $36. I relayed the shipping quote to the customer. After the customer confirmed the sale I packed and went back to UPS. The actual shipping was $45.00. I don't want to list a shipping cost for each item and then get burned because it is too low. I don't want to make it too high and discourage sales. Do most of you ship UPS or US post office or Fed Ex? Where do you buy boxes? I mostly use ones I have saved from other things. Please look at my website and let me know if this seems like a good solution. Maybe someone has a better idea? http://elaineclapperceramics.com/images/shipping
