Re: Woah! Shipping is expensive!!

What I have done to avoid losing out on shipping costs is, package everything up, go to the Post Office and weigh the package before I even list it. Usually there is a scale there, if not, they have the package shipping automated station. I just start a transaction as if I was going to purchase a shipping label, get to the part where it tells you the weight, and then cancel. That way I know how much it weighs first, can figure out the shipping costs, and then come up with a price. I have also gotten burned on shipping!!

It seems like for things like that you would do better garage selling them or craigslisting it where you dont have to worry about shipping.

I only sell prefolds locally. They are heavy to ship.

Re: Woah! Shipping is expensive!!

I sold a dozen before checking the shipping price. Definately would have been better off figuring out a way to cut/serge them into inserts or doublers.
Heck, I probably could have paid someone to do it for me locally for what I paid to ship them.

i sell world wide the only time they charge more to me is if the payment is sent in their form of money like from canada CAD instead of USD so I always ask for payment to be sent in USD.
