Losing Money on Shipping? Use eBay's Shipping Calculator

One of the most common problems with new eBay sellers is losing money on shipping. Calculated shipping is the most fair and accurate way to charge for shipping. Here is how to use that setting:


Summary:

A few tips:

1) Use the calculated shipping feature. It is the most fair and accurate method.

2) Watch your handling fees - avoid adding them at all. Add handling fees on to the price of the item instead so the buyer does not feel "swindled." (Many buyers on eBay are not business people and are clueless about the cost of doing business. We have to cater to that to get good DSRs.)

3) Avoid using USPS Flat Rate boxes. They are easy by design, but are not always the best choice.

Happy Selling!
