Shipping Options


#1

My gigs require me to ship the finished product via USPS / Snail Mail. I try to keep my shipping cost to the absolute min. for obvious reasons.



I get messages from possible customers on a regular basis, asking how much shipping is. I would like to see gigs that require shipping to have the shipping cost listed on the gig page so that buyers can see what the total cost is with shipping.



Second…



I would like to see shipping options for buyers. Right now you chose how much for shipping, but there is no option for overnight shipping, or even Priority shipping (2-3 days). I keep the standard shipping cost as the shipping price so it is the lowest cost for the buyer.



I do get customers that inevitably will want the shipping fast do to one reason or another. I would like to be able to offer that for them.

This is a good suggestion. I know Ebay had good shipping features, but I never had a gig where I ship stuff to my buyers, so I am not sure how this work.



I suggest contacting customer support and discussing it with them. They may have a good solution for you.

That’s a good thinking. And they must lets us to type shipping fee.

madmoo said: Good suggestion. When I add shipping, I often forget what I set it at, and when someone asks, I then have to go into 'edit' mode to read for myself


I have done that many times also.

This is good information because the products I will sell requires shipping. If Fiverr includes information for appropriate products that require shipping and handling fees this will help the buyers understand the final cost of their product.
