1. postage has increased
2. delivery confirmation - which is on all of my packages - has increased
3. I order mailers and boxes - shipping supplies - in bulk on line and their rates have increased
I have given a lot of thought to this over the past few weeks and this is where I am at...
$5 Flat Rate Shipping. So if you buy 2 or 3 items, there is not an additional shipping fee.
If you spend over $50, use the coupon code FREESHIP when you check out and, well, your items will ship for free! I do love free shipping!
I really feel like this makes much more business sense AND is a better solution than raising prices to absorb some of these cost increases. :)
