Myths about shipping for Etsy stores – methods and costs  

There are a lot of myths out there about shipping methods and cost for Etsy stores. Let us bust some of those myths! 

MYTH #1: The cheapest shipping option is always the best option. 

FACT: The cheapest shipping option is not always the best option. Sometimes, it makes more sense to pay a bit more for a faster (express) shipping method. This is especially true if you are selling items that are time-sensitive (such as food or flowers). 

MYTH #2: It is always more expensive to ship internationally. 

FACT: It is not always more expensive to ship internationally. In fact, sometimes it can be cheaper to ship internationally than to ship within your own country. This all depends on the size and weight of your item, as well as the distance it needs to travel. 

MYTH #3: You need to use special packaging materials when shipping items from your Etsy store. 

FACT: You do not necessarily need to use special packaging materials when shipping items from your Etsy store. Depending on the item you are shipping, regular packing materials (such as cardboard boxes and bubble wrap) may be just fine. 

Remember, FlagShip’s Etsy app integration is a helpful resource that lets you receive instant and accurate shipping rates. The data is automatically uploaded to the FlagShip shipping system for even greater convenience. More importantly, you can manage your shipping activities in one centralized location.
