    I’ve sent many packages to Hawaii and they cost the same as if I sent them to Oregon or California. I just did a trial address to Juneau Alaska and the price for 1 lb package is the same as a 1 lb to California.  Do a test in your postage software to see what a 1 lb package will run you from your location.

    You can raise the price of what you sell and as long as you give free shipping, your customer will buy every time. Many more people will buy a coat (example) for $75.00 and free shipping than the exact same coat at another website for $65.00 and $5.95 in shipping. Take away shipping and they will come.

    I’ve had success with free U.S. shipping until recently when I shipped two packages to Alaska. How can you afford to offer free U.S. shipping and ship to Alaska and Hawaii free??? I have added a disclaimer that my Free U.S. Shipping does not include Hawaii and Alaska. What do you suggest?

    We just started our first free shipping promotion today. In the middle of writing a press release to announce it as we speak. We’ll see how it goes. Thanks for the advice!

    Of course most people now prefers a free shipping when they purchase online.
