I am curious to know how much you sell your jars to customers for? I used to sell and still love the candles but stopped selling because I felt like I wasn't making much profit because the shipping was so expensive. I would love to hear how you all handle the shipping expense to still make a profit? It has been a few years since I sold but want to again. Thx!

Hi:

Our 16 oz jars cost $19.95 which is very reasonable compared to many on the market. You can see the different prices for the different types of candles on my website.

I personally don't charge shipping but as your own business owner, you can add several dollars per jar or per order to help with the shipping - it's totally up to you.

Let me know if I can answer any further questions.

And as far as the shipping, when a customer orders on your website, they pay a flat $5.95 shipping (US) no matter the size of the order! Candles are heavy,but our shipping prices are awesome! :)

That really is a great option for the retail customers to have a flat rate shipping fee. I'm loving all the new changes :)

Shipping is a write off....don't fret about it. But, if you want let each customer know you are adding 1.00 per order for shipping.
