Are you in the U.S.?  Without destinations, I can't plug into the calculators.   Here are a couple of sites where you can compare USPS, FedEx and UPS.


This one gets good reviews, but you need to set up an account.

I am in the United States. I sell on Amazon and I'm selling the product for $17.00 per bag. Most of my profit is seemingly going to be "eaten up" by the shipping rate, but there are other sellers selling the same product, and offer free shipping. I would like to do the same.

It's possible you could qualify for business discounts, since you'll use the service often. That info isn't online for me to check. You'll need to contact the shipping companies directly. It's hard for small businesses to compete with major retailers who get more breaks.

If Amazon has a "Contact" for sellers, they may be able to give you ideas and programs.

I will consult with Amazon, as well as other shippers for business/frequent shipping discounts.

Thank you
