Default Shipping Prices?

Hey guys,
How much do you pay for shipping? USPS is obviously the cheapest choice. I ship clothes so all I need to use is the flat rate which is about 6 bucks but I can't take the carelessness of USPS anymore. I'm trying to go to UPS or FedEx. This will also be my last international shipment, I've changed the countries I ship to and now I only ship within USA.

I pay shipping based on weight of parcel and intended destination - think UPS and Fedex tend to be pricier than USPS.

If you can, get a corporate shipping account....

FedEx Smart Post has its potential

For Clothing which tends to be under 2LBs USPS is normally going to be the cheapest. Sometimes if you have heavier items like big jackets or something like that UPS or FedEx Smart post can be reasonable from what I understand. USPS still does final delivery but UPS or Fedex apparently deal with the packages until it arrives at the post office facility in which it goes out for final delivery.

Really is unfortunate. A large portion of my business items under 2-3 lbs. So you really are limited in options.
