Calculated shipping
If you select calculated shipping when you list your item, shipping costs are automatically calculated for your buyer based on the buyer’s zip code, the weight, and the dimensions that you enter for the package. When determining the weight of the item, prepack your item to accurately determine shipping costs. It’s a straightforward way for sellers to collect an accurate payment for postage and buyers to know exactly how much it will cost.
Prepack and weigh your item
After taking pictures and before you list your item, you can prepack your item to accurately determine shipping costs. Pack it without completely sealing the package. That way you can make any necessary adjustments before sending it out. Once you weigh it, you can use the Shipping Calculator to figure out the exact amount you’d like to charge.

The Shipping Calculator
A great way to research different shipping options is with the Shipping Calculator. By determining your item’s weight and the dimensions of your box, you can estimate shipping costs to a variety of locations using a variety of carriers. Find the best value and offer your buyers a fair price while still turning a great profit on your sale.
Research the competition
It’s important to offer competitive pricing to your shoppers. Many people sell similar items on eBay, and in cases where the item you’re selling is not unique, offering a good price on shipping will keep you competitive. Buyers consider the total cost of an item including the shipping cost when making a purchase.
Research what shipping charges are for similar items and make sure your item has fair shipping rates. In addition to attracting buyers with better prices than your competition, lower shipping charges also surface your item’s Best Match, eBay’s default search method.
