Right, I’m about to end my free postage offer tonight so I’m updating all my postage costs. Now before Easter I had a set flat price of £3.30 for 1st class postage. No matter how many items were purchased. The only exception was my Prints and cards which were cheaper.
But, since the postage price hike of 2014 my sales have really been affected. So what I want to know is as a buyer would you rather pay a fee for each item or a flat rate again. AND do customers generally want cheaper 2nd class or the pricey 1st class?
Literally half of my shop will post under the 2.5cm diameter rule and the other half is too chunky.
I’d appreciate any advice as my head is hurting, and my shop is very close to being closed down all together. :’(
