I just finished my website and I have a few questions...

First of all, what is a good flat rate for shipping charges? Everything currently on my site is under $12 and I'm planning to ship only within the U.S. If someone knows what they're talking about (since I don't) and can advise me, that'd be great.

Also, is it a good idea to charge tax? I know paypal offers to automatically charge for me, but it doesn't seem necessary.

the last thing I can think of for now is if my geocities website will work for this. It has such pathetically low bandwidth, if I refresh the page 8 times in an hour it has to restore the site.
Is it a good idea to invest in a website deal with more bandwidth? Is it possible I could get so much traffic that my website would tell all the visitors it had to be restored?

i really hope someone takes the time to read all that and answer. Thanks a ton to whoever does! Smiley

if you're looking for a free host, try angeltowns.com. it's free and has loads of bandwith space.
then, just use dot.tk to give yourself a short re-directing url.

Can't help with shipping charges though, i'm in the UK. What I do with my shipipng charges is simply include them in the price.

the easiest thing to do is to go to your post office, or to USPS.com to figure out shipping. maybe configure a mock package and have it weighed and priced at the post office. or if you have a scale than can weigh ounces, you can figure all your costs at home. USPS charges by the ounce, i believe.
and with the taxes, you really do have to charge tax according to your states laws. it's really simple with paypal, and it could save you alot of possible hassle in the future.
