Setting up our liquidation store online and had an idea to clear out some lower value items.
Because shipping is Canada is ridiculous, we are concentrating our sales in a region that allows most items to ship for around $10-$12 dollars. My plan is to charge $4.99 for shipping with free shipping over $50. Since most items sell for $20-$100 I can eat the difference in shipping since my margins are very high.
Problem is, I have a large volume of low value items that I think would sell well, but can’t figure out how to offer them. If someone were to purchase just one, I would lose money with shipping.
I am sure it’s best to keep things simple so I don’t want to over complicate things by adding too many rules. Has anyone ever setup “add on” items like Amazon used to do. Where you had to have a minimum purchase to be eligible to buy them ?
