Plan Your Shipping Strategy
Find the Right Shipping Options for You and Your Customers
Strategic shipping decisions can help you get ahead. We recommend choosing both a standard low-cost option, as well as an expedited one for customers willing to pay for faster delivery. Here are some things to consider:
What do you ship most often?
Small packages to homes? Larger boxes? Multi-piece shipments to businesses? Freight?
What is the average value of your shipments?
You may include free shipping thresholds, free priority shipping or flat-rate shipping for specific high-value items.
How fast do your customers need it?
Most customers have come to expect a speedy delivery. Offer a variety of shipping services to meet their needs and expectations.
