How much should I charge for shipping from my online store?

On storefronts like Etsy, listing your shipping at a lower cost is more likely to get the searches and sales to keep your shop popular and successful. With shipping to different areas being such a difference in cost, it’s important to take into consideration the packaging of each item that you offer, the time and effort it takes to get that complete and ready to ship, and lastly the cost of shipping across the globe. Once all of that is complete, you can build your shipping cost into the product specific listings so that your cost of shipping on your storefront is low and there won’t be any hidden fees for your customers to keep them coming back and spreading the word about your awesome shop.
