Hi, wanted to say thanks in advance to everyone here who always take time to help others with their issues. I guess that is why I feel comfortable asking stupid questions without being judged and know that I always get the right answer. Can someone explain to me (the combined shipping impaired) exactly the best way to combine shipping and perhaps suggest pricing? ***My most important question being this: I generally sell baby/childrens clothing with most items being able to ship 1st class. I offer 1st class, parcel post, and prioirty and offer discount as highest ship price + $1 for each add item (excluding lots). When someone purchases 3 or 4 items and it obviously cannot go 1st class..am I supposed to charge the highest ship price from 1st class or parcel post before I add the $1 per item fee? I also offer the 8.95 flatrate and do not charge the $1 per item when this is used but a lot of customers do not want to pay the flatrate and I charge actual and do not want to overcharge on shipping. Lastly I offer promo free ship on $50+. The ebay calculator & checkout doesnt calculate correctly. In my listings I have the combine and promo both checked. What ebay settings and auctiva settings should I use..such as combine weight? If anyone understands this please help! Any help,comments, or criticism is very much appreciated. Thanks from the shipping challenged.
