I am the new seller on shopify. I am selling skin care products. (www.alpessence.com) I have been trying to find the cheapest way of delivery in USA.
Currently I am using Shippo with USPS rate. But i still find the USPS rate is a bit high..May I have a chance to learn from all of you of how you all do the delivery? or the apps you all use?

You can print shipping labels right out of Shopify when fulfilling your orders if your shipping with USPS. Shopify has worked out a discount based on your subscription for the rates. USPS will often be the cheapest for postage other services like UPS or FedEx will likely cost more.

You can directly print USPS shipping labels from Shopify, and will get direct discounts from Shopify. Also, there are different apps like Endicia, Shipstation, etc, that may provide cheaper rates. Now, if you have large order volume, you will get directly get discounted rates from USPS and you can use an app like Multi Carrier Shipping Label to integrate USPS with Shopify.
