    Hello Konga Merchants,
    
    Konga had long activated the free shipping button which automatically place free shipping besides Products and yes its quite enticing to prospective buyers when they know they will receive their product free.
    
    But this has Hijacked the price of items so to accommodate the free shipping and in most case people nearby tends to pay more.
    
    I am still very new on the konga market place and i need advice from you all
    
    ,I stay in akwa ibom and i have the structure to deliver goods within the south-south for as low as #500
    
    Hijacking my price to accommodate the free shipping or manually inputting shipping fee which is most beneficial and most likely increase genuine sales for me

    In order to implement free shipping you need to add the shipping cost to the farthest state from where u stay. It's true that when people in the same state as u are purchase those items they tend to pay more (and you make more). I feel guilty about it sometimes when a buyer in my state has to pay for a shipping cost I included for a buyer in the north.
    But since u have a mechanism for distro in the south-south, then i suggest you make shipping free by adding the #500 and ship only to those states

    Tuaale. I think it is better to include it in your price. :)
