Cost of shipping
My buyers are finding the shipping cost on my book prohibitive. I have been buying books and selling them myself to friends and in local shops. I mail one book for $1.35 first class, but Lulu's cost is much highe--more than triple that. I don't understand why the shipping cost is so high. fI there some way to bring it down so that shoppers don't shy away from ordering on-line, please share. I haven't been happy with FedEx anyway. They delivered a crushed, empty box as one of my orders of 20 books. And I can tell you that as an eBay seller, I've had much better luck with the USPS. How can I cut cost so that I can make some profit for myself?
