Facebook is advertising its sales through Shopify. It sounds intriguing. I just can't seem to find any relevant information on how to ship. I guess I am spoiled with Etsy on that. Whenever I inquire about shipping through Shopify I get what seems to be rather generic answers. Shipping has always been a bit of a nerve wracking element. Is anyone here selling through Shopify and what can you tell me about it? Karin
I don't know anything about Shopify, but if you have a paypal account, you can ship using them. Payment doesn't have to be through paypal to use their shipping. I send stuff to my mother all the time using paypal shipping.
I just found out that you have to be very careful about the shipping options on PayPal! The rates are the same as Etsy shipping rates, so if you get a price that is much higher, change things (like priority vs standard etc) around until you get the same as the Etsy price. The difference can be something like Etsy = $ 1.93 PayPal(with wrong option) = $ 6.91. Quite the difference! I had to use the PayPal shipping for a repair. My niece who had visited us in November here in Ohio bought a bracelet and a wire on it broke. She sent it to me from San Diego, I fixed it and had t ship it back. I wish I could say I chose the cheaper option:( Lesson learned - the hard way.
Karin, I've used paypal shipping for years. They don't have first class as the default setting like etsy. You have to choose which option you want to use. I think priority mail is the first option on paypal. That's probably what you chose.
Although I've recently started using etsy shipping, I actually prefer paypal. The main reason I changed, is so the tracking number appears with the order on etsy and are automatically marked as shipped. I used to have to copy and paste the tracking number from paypal and mark etsy orders shipped.
I have a FaceBook page, instagram, twitter, pinterest, you name it. I could do that stuff all day, but then I wouldn't be able to make any jewelry. It's just that I really need to sell it and I feel incredibly stuck on that end right now.
