Silly question would you pay shipping or a item at “free shipping” but shipping hidden in cost of each item? that’s what Etsy wants it’s sellers to do to customers so you get higher priority listings when people search for items now.
I’m in the process of creating my own shop run on my business website and will be dropping my Etsy shop shortly after that is finished.
I will not price gouge you guys like that. I’m honest my prices are based on my materials and a little bit of time to assemble them.
I have the same prices on my online shop as I do in person. My online shop just has calculated shipping added to the items. Usually depending on weight and size it varies from $3.00 to $8.00 per item. But I don't want to charge that in my prices if you order three things and the shipping is cheaper to bundle them versus single order packaging. I also might be trying to get some flat rate shipping in on orders that are heavier so they don't cost as much to ship.
I am hoping by the end of August to have my new online shopping available and the Etsy shop will be closed.
