Question of the day - Free Shipping?

Greetings to the blogger world and beyond,

I have been contemplating offering free US shipping (USPS First Class) for my etsy shop. I was wondering if any of you have any input to offer on the topic.

I would love to have your input!



  1. I've been offering free shipping since the 1st through the 14th. I'll let you know how it goes. I had one customer who did buy because of the free shipping. . .

  2. You could change to free shipping for a few weeks and then always change back if you think it didnt make a difference? Good luck either way! :)

  3. I had free shipping but no sales :( I did participate in the Trade-aholics midsummer trade and "sold" several prints.

    As a customer, free shipping is always a motivator! :)

  4. Thanks for the input! I agree Free Shipping is always a motivator!

  5. Hi! Love your blog background... so cute! =)

    We tried free shipping in our shop and our sales went down. Weird, I know. Some people have great experience with it. You can try it and see how it works for you. =)

  6. Thanks everyone! I'll give it a try..see how it goes for a month.

  7. Wow.. I am so envious that the USPS is so affordable. Its too pricey up here in Canada to offer a deal like that!

    ps. i had never heard of the pig n' pancake.. and the more people i mention it to have told us, we should have stopped there on our way to portland. darn it.. will have to remember it for next time.
