All of the carriers supported by Shopify Shipping are set to raise retail rates in 2020. USPS retail prices increased by an average of 1.9%, retail prices for UPS increased by an average of 4.9% and DHL raised by an average of 5.9% for their DHL Express Worldwide shipping service.
In this post we are going to show you how shipping policies apply to different circumstances.
As an online seller you probably have encountered some of the most common questions from your clients, “when can I get my order?” “how much is the shipping?” etc. Therefore, coming up with an appropriate shipping policy not only helps you set the proper expectations around shipping charges and times, but also raises customer experience in buying at your store.
Now, after setting your processes, shipments and all stocked up on supplies. What do you do next? It is to figure out the customer-facing details, to be more specific, what are you going to charge for shipping?
The dream is to gain a record-breaking amount of sales during any shopping season, such as Black Friday/Boxing Day, Cyber Monday, Xmas etc. But the reality is even after you have made those sales, you still need to fulfill and ship every order.
