Benefits of using Shipping Calculator
You sell more successfully.
Listings that include the Shipping Calculator are more likely to end with a sale, and for a higher price. Buyers are more comfortable bidding on your item when they know exactly how much shipping will cost for their location.
No more guessing.
The shipping cost presented will be based on the specific user's ZIP Code. This eliminates overcharging buyers or having to pay extra costs out of your own pocket.
Bundle your charges into one cost.
You can include a handling charge and/or insurance automatically in the total shipping cost without having to manually add it to the total or display it separately.
By having shipping costs provided for every location up front, you get fewer emails to respond to from buyers - ergo - save time.
Get paid faster; ship faster.
The shipping cost is pre-filled in the invoicing and Checkout process, so buyers can conveniently pay the total amount right away, meaning you're able to ship sooner and increase customer satisfaction.
