What is the best way to charge for shipping on an e-commerce store?

I am considering setting up an online store and one thing that I am curious about is what is the best way to charge for shipping? Any advice would be welcome. Thank you.


Intent is to ship books within Canada.

    Unfortunately, there's no "media mail" discount for books like in the U.S.  Paypal offers discounts on CDN Postal Service Rates.

    You may find shipping too expensive for many books.

    If you use Shopify or Go Daddy their E commerce systems figure the shipping for you.

    You can get rates by contacting the USPS or UPS or Fedex.  We don't know what you intend to ship, or when or where.
