How does Cocoknits determine the shipping cost of an order?

Since we ended our free shipping offer on Sept 30, 2022 we have moved to a flat rate set-up. We did a deep dive analysis of shipping costs over the past year or so, and found that $38 for all wholesale orders will mostly cover our costs. The  advantage to shops is that they will know ahead of time what the shipping cost will be - regardless of how many items they order - which makes it easier to plan ordering.
