Online Shipping expert

75 simbi for fulfilling my request - Virtual OK - Posted Jun 29

A small business struggling to keep the cost of shipping low for customers. Can't compete with ebay or amazon with their free shipping deals.

Our product is mindfully made, is dustributed via gift economy/symbiotic economy and feeling guilty about clients paying too much for shipping but see no alternative with the volume we work with.

We use USPS flat rate box at the moment. Looking for an alternative way. Maybe drones?

We're using WooCommerce and would like to automate the shipping system as much as possible. We've looked into add-ons like shipping easy and ship station, and think something like that would be the way to go. But we're not sure if they give all the functionality we're hoping for.

We'd like our customers to have multiple options, like USPS, UPS, or FedEx, and be able to enter their address and compare prices based on carrier and delivery times. We also want the system to recognize their order's size and weight and factor that into the equation. If someone orders 1 bottle it will require a different box and be a lower price, but if they order 12 bottles it will be a bigger box, if they order 24 bottles it might be multiple boxes.

From looking around it's been hard to figure out how to implement such a system. For now we have a very basic shipping options setup on our store. You can look over it at http://brenpaskitchen.com/product/mindful-chili-sauce/

Thanks :)

What a pleasure sharing Reiki with such a beautiful soul as Brett, Penpa's delightful partner. Right from the first comunication with Penpa, I knew I... was about to meet two magnificent souls. Penpa, with such kindness and love sent Brett with a gift of their home made, blessed mantra infused, all purpose, Mindful chili sauce, which I can't wait to try, as well as an ohm sticker to keep by my side. So very thoughtful. Thank you Penpa and Brett, I'm beyond grateful to Simbi for bringing our paths to this meeting and I look forward to more journeying with both of you. Much love.show more

About Penpa Dolma

A yoga teacher Student of Karma Explorer of mind Lover of life Believer of miracles Observer of patterns A composite of three different traditions - A Tibetan refugee, that's my tight root an...d grounding, an Indian dweller that loosened up that root a little bit by adding its own spice and songs and an American citizen getting used to the idea of freedom and liberty and the responsibility that comes along with it. I feel privileged to be in this country and I know this nation's potential to be a true global leader. I just want to be part of the solution. At your service. xo Turn all the external blame to oneself. Dissolve all self-blame into the expansiveness of compassionate emptiness . No blame remains. No guilt remains. Rest and remain. Simbi is a refuge to the idealist and the futurist in me. I dream of a world where we do things differently, considering the advancement in technology and the awakening of consciousness simultaneously. I want to live in a world where we value relationships, where vulnerability is courage and the shadow is honored and understood. I dream of a world where everyone lives truly making choices and not feel like this life is a burden. I want a world where we treat one another through the eyes of one family. Another world is possible. I dream of it. I work it every moment of my life. Looking for collaboration here for a world dominion. Love warriors: let's connect, collaborate and create magic. :) I believe I am the change I have been looking for, the habits are hard to kick but when you have a community of kindred spirits - no habit is too hard to let go. show more
