Don’t Overlook These Incredibly Cheap Shipping Options
You’ve got an online store to run and the last thing that you want to fret over is the high cost of fulfilling your orders. Studies show that one of the largest expenditures that ecommerce businesses will have to absorb is the cost of shipping and handling.
Your customers, according to studies, want cheap shipping options or they may not make the purchase and could abandon their shopping cart. Fortunately, you found this web page, because we are about to show you how you can get tied into the best rates on USPS shipping while gaining access to the best shipping software.
WHAT IS FLAT RATE SELECT?
Flat Rate Select is a special feature that’s included with every copy of ReadyShipper shipping software. Via our partnerships with discount shipping providers, you will gain access to cheap shipping options for USPS, some of the best shipping options for ecommerce businesses.
It’s ideal for your smaller but heavier items that weigh up to 20 pounds. Flat Rate Select ties you into the best rates on USPS shipping, allowing you to ship your most common items in non-branded boxes without paying a rate increase. It’s perfect for shipping most parcels from ecommerce stores, and it’s based upon zones, not the weight of your package (up to 20 pounds).
Now you can offer lower shipping costs, which can attract more customers and help you better compete with your rivals. According to numerous studies, shipping prices can affect as much as 65% of your sales volumes. ReadyShipper and Flat Rate Select combine to give you the best options for shipping and the lowest prices on postage.
If you use the standard shipping options that are offered by the USPS, you can usually only get these amazing discounts when you ship items that weigh less than five pounds, and that are able to fit into your USPS branded Flat Rate boxes. When you use Flat Rate Select, you can use your own boxes with no rate increase, and you can ship up to 20 pounds at the same great rate.

Being able to offer your customers cheap shipping options is a critical element of running any successful online store.
