How do I decrease my shipping cost on Etsy?

Shipping costs can be a drag! If you're shipping in the US, the labels you can purchase through Etsy are pretty much the cheapest you can find. Here are some ideas for making your shipping costs less painful:

  • Look over your packaging. Is your packaging unnecessarily big or heavy?
  • Look over your carrier's pricing and compare it to others for your specific packages. Also, how many packages does your carrier damage or lose? Maybe a more expensive carrier will be cheaper in the long run, because they are more reliable.
  • Increase your average order value, to make shipping costs smaller relative to what the customer pays.

Best of luck!
