There are several ways to charge for postage:

1. By total number of items ordered
2. By total price of an order
3. Pick a median price out of a hat (average guess)
4. Charge individually based on actual weight and dimension (best to get a machine to figure it out for you, which is expensive).

I started out with UPS. My first order, of course, came from some little podunk place in Iowa, and though the package was less than a lb., it cost me almost 13 bucks to send it. Puh-leez! The USPS charges less than $4 to mail any of my stuff Priority Mail. That's what I use now. I charge $5 for shipping, and that's for the box, the trip to the P.O., the actual shipping, and a shiny new quarter or two.
