Everything you need to know about shipping items to a buyer is stated in TOS at the bottom of the Fiverr main page. :wink:

If you are sending a 10 or 15 page photo album that won’t cost $70 to ship. No one will pay $70 shipping cost for a photo album.

In the U.S. we have a store called Walmart that will make a 20 page photo album for $40 and ship it for around $6.

They may have this same store in Canada.

This is the variety of choices you can have, as shown on their site:

Product Details

  • Perfect for a family gift, vacation keepsake or celebration of everyday moments
  • Glossy finish cover customizable with photos, text, and embellishments
  • Feature several photos on up to 150 pages
  • Change themes, page backgrounds and layouts
  • Archival-quality paper with a semi-gloss finish
  • Available in 8x8, 8.5x11 and 12x12

It’s good to know who your competition is. This store has locations all over the world.

You could send a ticket to support and tell them that you need to ask buyers for their address when they buy your gig extra because you need to ship physical items. I’d make clear that you’re asking for the gig, not for that order, so you won’t have to ask every time someone buys that extra but will have a written “permission” from support to ask for the address in those cases.
Probably they’ll also tell you you need to ask on the order page, not in normal chat.

If you can’t select the actual price you need to take for shipping, you’d probably have to send a custom extra for that, which is only possible after people already ordered, so the better idea probably would be to write in your gig that people who want something physically shipped need to contact you for a custom order, then you can build the shipping price into the price of the custom order. But it’s best to ask support about something like that to make sure you have a “legal” way to do it.

So it would cost $70 shipping from Pakistan?

Would you pay $70 to have a wedding photo album shipped from Pakistan?

Do you have Walmarts in your country?

I had something shipped from China to the US and it cost $5.

I agree. It does cost quite a bit to get stuff from Canada - I had to pay about the same for shipping for a pattern I bought on Etsy as I did for the pattern itself!
