Why are postage calculators better than flat rate shipping?

Postage calculators allow your business to ship products at a lower cost to your customers.

How you ask?

When you use postage calculators you are using specific data to determine a price.

This data is based on the size and weight of the package, and the distance between your business and your customer.

If you post using a flat rate shipping method, you are doing a lot of guess work which takes up significant time and money for your business.
