Insight on how to estimate shipping when selling

I not sure where to post this question. I have several diapers that I would like to post on the forum for sale. I have never used it so I am reading through all the sticky suggestions- shipping, paypal, how to post, etc....If you have sold diapers would you be able to give me some insight on how you have estimated your shipping in the past?

If you have included it in your pricing, how do you estimate a fair shipping cost for you and for the buyer? I feel like the shipping options I see on USPS would cost upwards of $6. If you have sold diapers on here, does this seem reasonable? OR have you found calculating the cost of shipping to be easier once you know where the buyer is located. Thank you for any help with this!

1 or 2 diapers would be able to go first class (anything under 13oz). That never costs more than $3.xx including DC when you use Paypal to ship. Anything over that, I usually put in a Flat Rate option.

There is an AWESOME thread on here about shipping smart. I will see if I can find it for you
