Re: any e commerce owners here for a chat ?

Things which are significant in my experience.

What type of volume are you anticipating?

How consistent are your shipping needs? Large, bulky packages. Lightweight mailers. Flat envelopes??

Have you considered the amount and types of packing material you will be using?

Is there an existing business whose shipping model you could copy?

There are continuous optimizations which can be made to increase efficiency, however they are usually dependent on other aspects of the business.

I’d also speculate that unless you grossly miscalculate, your initial shipping solutions will not be the primary driver of success or failure.
