If your customer wants it super fast or wants priority, then you could offer priority for the actual price, but I offer flat $2.95 shipping on all my bows, whether they purchase one or 10, even if it goes over the $2.95, it isn't by much.
I have a 10 for $10 in my etsy shop right now. The bows are 4" half pinwheel bows on alligator clips. It costs me over $4 to ship and that, to me that is ridiculous..... I feel like this sale is already a great deal, it's kind of like a way to get my feedback scores up. The bad thing is the shipping is now cutting into my meager profits. What methods would you take to lower the shipping for those items(box size, ship method etc.) Thanks so much for your help, I'll take all I can get.
