SHIPPING YOUR ORDERS
One of the most important aspects of your online business will be order fulfillment, and a big part of that will be shipping. At first you can utilize boxes that you can get from local merchants or at a place like "The UPS Store", but eventually as your sales become more regular you may want to purchase the correct size boxes in quantity directly from a box manufacturer. The resources below will give you a place to start if you do not have an outlet near your own location.

SHIPPING CALCULATORS
UNITED PARCEL SERVICE
FEDERAL EXPRESS
DHL/AIRBORNE
US POSTAL SERVICE

For international shipping: We have found that the US Postal Service has the best price in their "Parcel Post - Airmail" service; however, it is CONSIDERABLY SLOWER than the 4 - 7 days they advertise, so warn your customer if that is the way you ship internationally.

Prior to entering the information on the data fields at the shipping calculators, you should know the size of your package [height, width, depth]; the total weight; and all the destination address information.

When you get the estimated shipping charge from the online form, add an additional amount for insurance and the cost of the boxes, packing, etc.
