You’re a costume maker. Right now, the internet’s full of people looking for you. And when they find you, they’ll find something they love because that’s what you do. What you don’t do is the shipping, and navigating that world can be frightening.If you want to lower your shipping costs, you can go with a small-time shipper. But you run the chance of falling victim to their small-time practices and having your costumes arrive on November 3rd.

If you want to guarantee a consistent quality delivery, you’ll have to pay for it. And being a small eCommerce company, the rates you’d pay if you dealt directly with the likes of Purolator, DHL, UPS and FedEx are monstrous.

Either way, you’re at risk, as are all the little girls and boys out there who just want to be superheroes on Halloween.

The Trick

If you want the best of both worlds ¾ lower shipping costs and quality delivery ¾ you need to jump in on the big shippers’ economies-of-scale rates. You won’t get them on your own, but we can get them for you by pooling you with other eCommerce companies.

The Treat

The volume we package up and offer the big shippers gets you “Amazon” rates no matter how much or little you ship. If you ship 5 items a week, you'll pay what someone who ships over 100 times a week would pay. And there’s no spooky contract or deathly commitments either. All you need is a FREE account and you’re good to go.

The Truth

High shipping costs scare customers away. Eighty percent of online shoppers factor the cost of shipping into their purchase decisions and 25 percent won’t complete an online purchase if the shipping costs are too high. So whether you sell costumes, clocks or calendars, you’ll sell more of them if you lower your shipping costs. And with Christmas right around the corner, now’s the time to think about lowering your shipping costs because you know your customers are thinking about it too.

Get yourself set up with eShipper now so when the holidays come, you’re familiar with how it works (and how we work) so you’ll be good to go with no scary surprises.
