Setting up your shipping options
There are many ways to send items to your buyers. By setting up your shipping options accordingly, you set your store up for success. By offering more than one delivery option, you’ll be able to attract different types of buyers.
You can pick which shipping methods you want to offer your buyers when creating your listing. Depending on whether you’re using our quick listing tool, or our advanced listing form, you’ll do this in slightly different ways.
Before setting your shipping options for an item, look at the options other sellers are offering so your rates are competitive.
How to setup shipping options
- Enter you Dashboard settings and select shipping from the right hand menu.
- At the bottom of the page click on “+Add Shipping Method”
