Shipping from Multiple Locations Balancing Shipping Costs

Recommended Posts

Shipping from Multiple Locations

I'm based in the UK and ship fashion products from my home studio. I've calculated the weight and dimensions for all my garments.

Additionally, I use a third-party printer to send my prints from a different location, with set prices for shipping each print/frame.

Balancing Shipping Costs

If a customer buys a t-shirt, I intend to use weight-based shipping for the EU.

However, since prints are not shipped based on weight, combining a print and a t-shirt in one order complicates the shipping calculation.

Optimising Shipping Strategies

Given this challenge, do you think setting flat rates for the EU and the rest of the world is the best solution?

I'm concerned about potentially losing out due to high shipping rates if I opt for flat rates, but I'm struggling to find an alternative.

Managing Shipping Rates

Finding a balance between accurate shipping costs and not overcharging customers is crucial. 

Is it possible to offer flat rates based on average shipping costs for combined orders only, ensuring that neither lose out on high shipping fees nor deter customers with exorbitant rates?


This is how it would look

if I use weight-based for fashion-only orders (shipped from my home only with royal mail)

Prints - can I use weight-based without putting in all dimensions as my print company deal with all that?

Combined orders outside UK Flat rate for a print and fashion order?

Thanks in advance
