I saw a really humorous thread today in the Etsy forums about shipping. Here is the link http://www.etsy.com/teams/7722/business-topics/discuss/8756866/page/1/
Although most of it was done with humor (and it is funny) it is a very real truth! Shipping is expensive today and going up all the time. So many of us don't charge enough and end up paying for the freight out of our own pockets. Also, because Etsy list countries and not states, we can't put in our descriptions how much it will be to send to a specific place. I for one wish Etsy would change that. I'll put in a shipping rate of $7.00 and then someone from California will buy a wreath from me and the shipping then goes up to $10.00. Can't win.
But it's nice to see that people have a sense of humor about shipping rates. I wonder how many people have to pay when they don't get the shipping rate right. Any solution? Charge to much? Then no one will want to buy our items. Charge to little? Then we don't make any profit when we have to pay for the extra shipping rate that we didn't count on.
So what to do about shipping? I'd love to hear ideas. Ship on!
Here is an adult hat and scarf set that will keep you warm all Winter!!! Made with soft yarn, the scarf has pom poms on the ends instead of the usual fringe. The hat will cover your ears and keep you snug in the freezing weather. The scarf is 75" long and 4" wide. The colors in this set are pink, white, green and brown so you won't have a problem matching it with your coat! Stay cozy this coming Winter with this great set!!! ♥
Well the temperature has been high the last few weeks but today we're going to reach an all time high. Temperature today will be 100 degrees but feel like 110!!! I love summer but itsn't that a bit much??? How high is the temperature where you are? I love the heat but it's the humidity that I can't handle and it's going to be high until Sunday when it goes back down to 85 degrees and low humidity. Well we complain in the Winter when it's cold and we complain in the Summer when it's hot but I'll take the Summer over Winter anytime!!!! Stay cool everyone! ☼
