Question about shipping
I am considering selling vintage furniture on etsy and I have two questions.
First, how many pieces do I need to list to start with? 2, or 10?
And secondly, how do I get information on the cost of shipping for say a heavy solid wood dresser?
It seems like it would cost a huge amount!
I’m not aware of any minimums on Etsy. I’ve listed as few as 5 items at a time, so you shouldn’t have any problems there. As for shipping, this is something you must take the time to research and learn if you want to be successful in ecommerce. Shipping is always based on size, weight, and type of service. But, for high-value furniture pieces, you also have specialty truck shipping and ltl freight options. You can learn the basics about freight in our freight shipping services article. And, I recommend you check out Uship, which we cover in the article. They may be the best solution for you to start getting freight price estimates and finding the best deals for specialty furniture deliveries. Good luck! Krista
