5 Convenient Ways to Save on E-commerce Shipping Costs

Need to save on shipping costs? Here’s how! 

We know shipping e-commerce can be time consuming and expensive. Luckily, there are so many new and convenient ways to save on shipping costs! Here are our best suggestions for saving on e-commerce shipping costs: 

  • Managing a business that utilizes e-commerce means keeping most of the business online. Shipping costs can be expensive so one way to help save costs is to use a shipping platform! Doing this can also allow you to access business discounts available in different shipping platforms! 
  • Depending on what customers buy, larger packaging can cost extra. There isn’t always a one size fits all option so a good way to reduce cost in that area is to check USPS rates for options to reduce shipping costs. One example is, if all your packaging is under 70lbs, your company may qualify for flat rate shipping. It’s worth looking into to help save! 
  • As a business, the chances of you receiving packaging regularly are high. A good way to help save on shipping costs is to reuse packaging from orders you receive! There are also specific printers available so that you can print your own shipping labels! Both of these options are inexpensive, and significantly better for the environment! 
  • Another easy and efficient way to save some money on shipping costs is to build shipping into the price of your product. Though most shoppers prefer free shipping, it’s not always a viable option for all businesses. When starting out, it’s ok to build shipping costs into the price of a product to help save on shipping costs.
