I have a web-site, I see customers visiting my site, but no sales. The question now is which is the best shipping carrier/ method to use. Please any suggestions will be accepted.

Hi Ashimedua,

Good news that you have traffic flow, that's a positive. Of course now you have to start converting some of that traffic into sales. Your focus seems to be on your shipping options, you think your shipping is too expensive, that could be the only reason no one is buying?

25 Mar 14 11:41:16 pm there a particular reason why you believe shipping cost is your problem...also...keep in mind that website design, product pricing, competitive alternatives etc would be a factor too...intact the average converiok n rate for a good site is between 1-3% I'm told....though these are generic numbers, we could safely assume that the number is low....which means of every 100 people visiting you site, only 1 MIGHT potentially convert...into sales...wud u mind sharing ur site info and traffic stats...I've had similar problems in the past and I wud definitely seenwhat I can do to help....
