Some sellers like using the eBay
shipping calculator feature. If you ship via USPS or UPS, you can put the

exact shipping costs up front. They put in their zip code and viola – shipping
fees for that item are presented based on the weight and options you
pre-determine. You can even include handling fees that are transparent to the
make a mistake you’ll have to either suck it up and eat the cost or ask the
buyer to pay your (not a fun alternative). Most sellers who find themselves in
this predicament just eat the cost and move on. If most of your items are the same, you’re better off just
posting flat rates for your shipping. You don’t need to have the calculator on
every listing. Consider your product mix and then try it out.
