hello everyone!

im in the processes of developing my online store using the drop shipping method. for my online store I planned on offering free shipping over $50, but what im having a hard time wrapping my head around is im selling kitchen products. the product MSRP is let says $100. I get it wholesale price at $50 an the weight is 10lb but when I calculate the ship cost using UPS quote, the shipping cost cost more then the product its self

am I doing something wrong here?how do I do free shipping on heavy items? I see other company who are doing the same concept of offering free shipping but how are they making money with shipping rates so high?

thank you

    There is absolutely no way that a product that only weighs 10 pounds costs $50 to ship unless it is extremely long and wide (I have no clue what could be super large and only weigh 10 pounds - maybe the world's largest feather?). That is, unless you are shipping it internationally.

    If you are trying to ship internationally, that is a whole other ballgame and you will never be able to offer free shipping on anything bigger than maybe a small book. If not, something is definitely wrong.
