I have only sent a few packages in the mail, and i never knew what the shipping cost would be until i got to the post office or UPS store.

I will be having a bunch of clothes to sell soon, as soon as i find out what this LO is, and i want to be able to get the stuff up on the swap shop.

How do you ladies figure out the shipping quotes you give people?

What is the cheapest way that you have used for shipping items? I hate paying for shipping myself, so i would hate to be overcharging people.

Well I use a scale. You can buy them super cheap on Ebay. I also print labels through Paypal, its only .19c for Delivery Confirmation, so you never have to worry about where your package is. Usually with clothing, I prefer to stuff flat rate envelopes, or boxes if its a large order. Priority only tends to be pennies more then parcel & parcel can take up to 3 weeks these days!

Another thing I tend to do is I will cover 25-50% of shipping, depending on how large the order is. If its just a few light items, I charge actual.

HTH!
