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!
