New Feature: Shipping Calculator

We have a new feature on USAudioMart that launched this week: a simple shipping calculator that estimates the cost of shipping the item in the classified to a postal code of your choice.  The calculator uses the shipping weight and/or dimensions of the item and can give prices using USPS, Fedex, and UPS.

If you are browsing items that have a shipping weight or dimensions added by the seller, you will now see a small "calculate shipping" button.  Just click on this to get started.

Once you click on the calculator the options come up where you can input your destination zipcode (this is prefilled with the zipcode in your profile).

Note that these are shipping estimates... contact your seller for actual and final shipping cost.

Sellers Posting Classifieds: Enter Shipping Weight and Dimensions

This new feature benefits both buyers and sellers.  For sellers, it can help your buyer get an idea of shipping cost without asking you.  Some of our sellers have been asking for this because it helps save time and effort.

As a seller, you only need to do 3 things to make sure the shipping calculator is activated on your classifieds:
 
  1. Edit your profile and make sure your postal code is correct.  If you are not comfortable giving your real postal code, consider entering one of a nearby post office.
  2. Make sure to enter the shipping weight in your classified.
  3. Add shipping dimensions of the box if your item is particularly large.

Buyers: Use Shipping Calculator as an Estimator

Keep in mind that the shipping calculator is providing you an estimate as given to us by real time queries to the shipping service.  Always contact the owner of the ad for the actual shipping cost, as various factors can change the actual cost.
