After receiving my first over seas sale today I quickly realised that my postage charge estimation was way off, so therefore I am a fair bit out of pocket.
It’s a lesson learned this time, but I want to update all of my listings with more accurate cost for future sales.
My worry is that the postage costs abroad are quite steep. I don’t want to put off potential custom from over seas but at the same time I can’t afford to keep them as they are.
I’ve noticed a lot of shops here charge the same kind of price as I do at £3.50, but that doesn’t even cover half. I just paid £8.70 at the post office.
I’m thinking it will put folk off buying from overseas if I charge £8.70 but i can’t see any other option.
Is it worth giving it a try with the new high postage costs or maybe not offering a delivery abroad at all and just keep to UK… I’m in a pickle
