Postage preferences - HELP please!! EDITED

Thank you all for your input the weight seems to be the favourite.
The only problem I am having is I can't do weight on Paypal!
So I have done my postage prices so they should be roughly correct on weight prices.
Also I think you will find my product prices more than fair as they are nearly all less than retail!!
Two weeks tomorrow & you'll be able to see for yourselves!!

Hi, Hope you are enjoying the sun while its out?!
I would like to ask you all your opinons on postage on online craft shops.
How do you prefer it to be?

A flat rate eg £3.00 no matter what you buy
By weight 
0.00-10.00 = £1.00
10.01 - 20.00 = 2.00 & so on..

I need to decide for my shop..only 19 days to go!!


I think the second is beter..... i think its more fair, when people buy something very light ;)

good luck with your shop!

I would say to be fair it should be by weight. Good luck on the shop opening.

I have mine as large letter, packet under 500g and packet over 500g it's very tricky the postage many people want free p & p but how could you make any money doing that not us small people anyway!

I think by weight. Good Luck. Kathleen x
Hi Helen
By weight is by far the fairest option all round. You don't want to be losing money either which you might if you charged a flat rate and the customer's parcel came in at more. I hope you've remembered to take into account packing as well.

By weight... think that the postal office charges that way too...
but do state the international shipping rates as well if you are planning to making it international :D

All The best~

Where have you been? I hear you cry!

Where the heck have you been? I hear you cry! Well I am busy working full time on my job (being a mummy) & part time on my fortune!
This is my full time job! He's called Murphy & is now two years old.
Why have I not been crafting? Well I am making some small short term sacrifices for a very huge fantastic long term goal......making memories with this little dude! The time I would have been using to craft I am building a successful international business! This business opportunity is open to anyone & can change your life in ways you never dreamed possible all you have to do is put some work in.
Would you be interested in  supplementing your income,  working from home around current commitments,  how would an extra £200-500 per month help you? What about £800-2000 per month?

Take care everyone....... I am with my healthy wealthy life :-)

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁
