Shipping Inquiry pls Help!
Hey, so I'm going to be starting up an online clothing shop and this entire time I was thinking shipping would cost me very little money (like maybe $5 to ship a pair of pants anywhere in the world) but I called FedEx to get a quote on a single pair of pants and the lady said it would cost me $99 to ship something from Thailand to Canada. The weight of most of my items will be under 1lb and I see other little shops offer their customers $5 country-wide shipping and $10 worldwide shipping so I'm wondering how these people get those rates. Is it based on volume of sales or do I need to register as a company or ???
Any help will be greaaatly appreciated as I am lost and everyone that I've asked so far has really not cleared it up for me. I see a bunch of online shops offering low shipping fees so I know they exist.
