I'm a new seller

Is there anywhere on here that lists some general shipping rates just so I can get an idea of what I should do? Or any advice on how you determine shipping costs?

Re: I'm a new seller

I have never seen a list of general shipping rates. The flat rates are obviously easy to determine, but you would have to try out how many items fit in which size. I would definitely recommend the scale like the previous poster says. Then you can weigh 1 item plus packaging, then 2 and so forth and make yourself a list.
