Someone asked me why we do not just put the pack of seeds in a plain envelope and put a stamp on it. That way shipping would only cost .55 cents.
Lets see if I can address this.
First of all, we have learned that all of our packages need to be sent with tracking. Tracking usually cost $2.50 to $3. Tracking is necessary so that the customer knows we have done our job and shipped their package. Also if a package is lost, the Post Office can GPS it and find out where it did end up at. Or in rare cases, if the customer is being dishonest about receiving the package.
We have to print a label for the package and a packing list. In order to do this I have to pay someone to print and attach (we pay a good salary here plus some benefits) the label.
Then I have equipment charges, envelope charges, ink charges, label charges, paper charges, electrical charges and I have to pay for the space the envelopes, the labels, the printer, the trash can and the desk where the team member sits, uses.
I have to provide a desk and chair for the team member. Plus a toilet, water and other sundries for the team member. And I have to pay for the space they are using.
And on top of this, I have to pay a yearly property tax for the desk, printer, chair, trash can and any toilet paper, hand soap or paper towels we have in stock at the time we do our inventory.
We also provide water and coffee for our team members. More space and electrical fees, plus coffee, water and condiment fees plus yearly tax on the coffee pot and refrigerator.
And supplies to keep everything clean. Storage space for the supplies for cleaning. Tax on storage racks. Property tax on any supplies when we do our inventory.
And once it is ready to ship, I have to pay someone to take it to the drop box.
After a bit, this all adds up.
So when you think about it, $4 is a pretty good shipping rate.
Special note: While we have moved to our new place, and there are no rental fees, leasing fees or mortgage fees, we still have to pay rent on the building until our lease it up which will be next April 2021.
