How to Configure Shipping Charges?
One of the most important parts of selling online is calculating and displaying the shipping charges. While many commercials for stamps.com make it look so easy to print a label and put it on the box, selecting an appropriate shipping policy with affordable rates can be a nightmare. Also, visitors do not like to see a surprise at checkout – they would like to see the policy before they shop.
No, stamps.com doesn’t know your item!
Note that stamps.com and its competitors do not know anything about your product – neither weight nor size. You will have to do the research yourself and tell the software what to charge – within the US and internationally.
Examples of shipping calculations are:
- Free shipping (include shipping in the calculated sale price)
- Charge a base fee and add a fee by item
- Weight based shipping
- Value based shipping
- A combination of the above (also different shipping options for different products)
Sedona Website Design has built countless stores with a variety of shipping calculations. We mainly work with WooCommerce and know exactly which plug-in or extension to use for your purpose.
