Need a shipping cost estimate to determine if my e-commerce idea will work

Before I start my e-commerce business I need to know if it will be affordable to ship a 16 pound box from coast to coast. For example : 16 pound box dimensions 10"X12"X6" ship from Hallowell, Maine at 04347 zip to Walla Wall WA zip 99362. That would be the maximum distance that I would ship. 

 

I need to know the best rate you have. If it is too high it will not be worth starting this business.

Hi @Valentine3 

 

I'd be happy to help you with this! If you have a trial store started you can check out the sample rates in your admin using the Shopify Shipping Calculator

 

Using the Shopify Shipping subscription based on the Basic plan, the estimated shipping costs for a package of these dimensions looks something like this:

 

05-10-26830-68772

 

Here are some of the additional rates listed for comparison:

 

05-13-61808-11096

05-12-31588-60009

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shipping rates discounts will increase as your pricing plan goes up. You can take a look at how shipping rates increase by plan in our Help Center here: Calculating Shopify Shipping rates · Shopify Help Center. 

 

Please let me know if you have additional questions about Shopify Shipping and shipping products for your business.
