New Idea

Adjust shipping costs based on weight

Status: New Idea!

Consider adapting the shipping cost based on soft-/hard cover and number of pages.

The price of shipping currently does not take into account the weight of the items. I noticed that adding e.g. 30 copies of a book results in the same shipping cost whether the book has 52 or 256 pages or is soft or hard cover. As a result, for small books, the shipping costs make a disproportionate part.
