What would be considered a winning shipping rate?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi all. What would be considered a winning shipping rate? I'm trying to stay a step ahead of my competitors.

Shipping rates vary based on the recipient's location, parcel size, weight, and the shopping cost method applied. All you can do is follow these 3 successful strategies to ensure you have a winning shipping rate to offer your customers:

  1. Offer Free Shipping: Some merchants offer free shipping when the cost of the total order exceeds the baseline limit. For example, you can provide free shipping on orders above $100.
  2. Flat-rate Shipping Cost: It means that the price of the shipping cost is fixed irrespective of the item's weight, shape, or size. For instance, charge a flat fee of $10 on every item to be shipped.
  3. Charge the Actual Cost: In this shipping strategy, you can charge the customer based on the original quote of the shipping company. You can use a real-time calculator for this purpose.
