- How do you calculate the shipping cost before the item is sold?
Shipping companies usually have a "Calculate Shipping Rate" section on their website but they require you to provide the zip/postal code the item is shipping from (which is my own) along with the destination zip/postal code (the buyer's) but how about if you don't know where it's being shipped to yet cause the item hasn't sold? How do you come up with a general shipping rate, for domestic and international buyers, and not lose money?
- What postal/shipping scale brand would you recommend?
- How do you ship extremely large items, such as furniture?
-- How do you weigh it? How do you wrap/package it?
