|I am new to the greeting card business and am setting up a website to sell my product. I will be selling more than greeting cards - letterhead, postcards, and note sheets.
Is there a way to estimate a standard shipping cost without an actual order? I want my customers to know approximately what they would pay for the shipping, but, I have no idea what to charge because I don't have the zip code.
Should I bring in a sample order to the post office to validate the shipping rate?
Or, is there a standard rate that is used? For example, $5.95 for all orders.
This is a strange question, but, I need to know the shipping rates before my website is public.
Thank you so much!
