The store is doing well as guys are finding it and pricing items before they buy and coming back and buying from me based on price.

The main issue is the shipping rates as the cart offers very limited options.   I set a flat rate of $7.50 and most sales fit in that range as it is a flat rate 2-3 day priority USPS.  However, I have been burnt costing as much as $31.62 to ship a guys order.  Over all I loose on Shipping and don't want to have raise prices to make up for it.  

I can't set rates per item, and if I do size + weight + zip code the price works out OK but the Cart offers the $7.50 option also.   So what is a guy going to check?   $18 to get his barrel to OR or WA or the $7.50 flat rate?   Yea right.

So, I will be moving the store to a Word Press site over the next couple of months so I can set shipping the same as other sites.  The are a multitude of plug ins for carts on Word Press.  I have to build the site and move over 400 items so it is going to take me a couple months as the rest of life and business goes on and won't stop so I can get this done fast.  

The current store will stay on line while I build the new one and I still want input from guys as to what to carry and my prices.   On I make the statement " if you are to busy to talk to your customers, you won't be to busy very long" and I live by that statement so don't even mind calls with input.
