Shipping Within the US
For shipping within the US, you might consider options such as the US Postal Service, DHL, UPS, FedEx, or other similar companies. There are a few factors to consider here when using a subscription as a service platform.
Different rates are charged for shipping by each of these businesses, but it isn’t just based on a single factor. The most common factors are the weight and physical size of the package, so if your subscription box will be approximately the same size every time you will be able to make a choice right at the start.
However, even if the box stays the same size but the weight varies, you may need to reevaluate your decision every time you produce a subscription box.
A further factor to consider is shipping insurance. If your shipment is lost, damaged, or destroyed, you’ll be the one who receives the complaint. Shipping without insurance is cheaper but may be more expensive in the long term is problems consistently come up.
