I'm working on the final stages of getting my Etsy shop up and running! The most difficult part is figuring out how much to charge for shipping. I had to buy boxes to ship the beds because the free large box the post office offers is too small, and I didn't want to squish the beds beyond recognition!
I'm living with a former math major, so he has helped me put all the possibilities into a spreadsheet. There are so many factors - where the bed is going, how much the box weighs, which item they are purchasing. It would be great if Etsy had a zip code/price calculator on their site, but they don't, and you have to list a shipping price.
I'm off to get a scale at Walmart, so that I can accurately determine the weight of the beds + box. I'm excited to open the store, and I hope everyone likes the beds! As Samoa would say, the Diva Collection is pawsome!
