Costs for shipping bottles

Recommended Posts

I'm curious, we are able to ship our wines, not our spirits. But I'm wondering what others who can ship bottles of their product directly are charging for that? I have bottle shippers, but I'm not sure what to charge to ship single bottles or cases. Any preference of UPS, Fedex, USPS?

Here is my experience-

UPS would ship and break nearly all my spirits, until I filed a claim. Every single claim was denied as per "improperly packaged". That was a load of crap. Then refused to ship anymore spirits.

Fed Ex- Much better job, very little breakage. They don't ask, I don't tell.

USPS- no liquids, but never had a bottle break.

We do not ship spirits to consumers, but to industry and distributors.

That is good to know. I haven't ordered many spirits in the mail, but when I have they were shipped fedex. I will keep that in mind.

I'm wondering how anyone doing direct shipping is charging the customer for shipping. Our square market page doesn't have a very advanced method of adding shipping charges, so if I were to do it, I'd need to set up some sort of blanket charges.
