    Hey Guys,

    I'm starting to get a few orders through my new website. Who do you use for shipping, and how do you charge for that? Do you just raise the price of the product to include shipping, or is shipping extra? Like If I need to ship out a 12x16 matted print and I charge $45 for that, what is the best option for shipping? I can do all the labels and stuff through paypal for UPS, but for a 1lb 1x12x16 package, thats like $10 shipping, plus I gotta package it? How would you go about charging for that? Thanks.

    Also, here's my pricing:
    5x7" in 8x10" mat - $20
    8x12" in 12x16" mat - $45
    11x14" in 16x20" mat - $75
    12x18" in 18x24" mat - $135
    20x30" in 24x36" mat - $225

    What do you think?

    My on-line 'photocart' has options for adding shipping to orders.
    I can add a specific amount for each item, or add a percentage of the price etc.
    I don't ship many orders, so I haven't been able to test out different methods for what works best.

    If you are going to be shipping a lot of orders, I'd suggest figuring an average shipping cost into your price and then advertise 'free shipping on all orders'...or something to that effect.
