SO! The United States Post Office decided to raise shipping costs on Jan 17th. Which, of course, is a pain in the ass if any of you have a home business that ships items out. Every item has to be re-edited to consider this hike so that you don’t take a loss on your item due to under-charging shipping. But – you also don’t want to be an A-hole and look like you’re overcharging (especially if you try to add in a percentage of the costs of shipping materials: gift wrap, tape, boxes, labels, ink, etc).
So I decided to be a rebel today and stick it to the man. While I’m editing my listings, pictures, prices, shipping, etc – I’m gonna offer free shipping! Yes, it may seem counter-intuitive to offer free shipping while complaining about losing shipping costs above – but if I get a ‘above average sale numbers’ today (which is like, more than one sale.. haha) it will work out in the end anyway – a profit eating shipping costs for one day is better than no sales at all!
