I used to run Supernova Distro back in the day before it was common for everyone to use Paypal carts & stuff like that. I'm starting up my new distro and I am a little frazzled just trying to figure out shipping methods and all that jazz.
I would love to just use the flat rate priority shipping rate ($4.90), but I'm afraid most zinesters would think that was too expensive and would rather use first-class mail. I know when I usually order from distros I order a bunch of stuff at once, so shelling out an extra $5 for quicker shipping doesn't seem like a huge deal when I'm ordering $20-30 worth of zines. But I know that if some people just order a few zines at a time, $5 for shipping seems like a huge chunk of dough.
So what are your thoughts? Would you rather order from a distro that has first-class postage paid zine prices (for both US and Intl), or just one flat priority rate? Is a certain shipping method/price a dealbreaker for you?
