The population of Alaska and Hawaii combined is around 2,140,231. And you say,"Put CONUS Only on your ad and you lose over 2 million customers just in Hawaii and Alaska".
Google says, "QRZ has 600,000 unique visitors per month. Over 50,000 hams from around the globe visit QRZ every day. QRZ has a member base of nearly 500,000 registered users."
So how can you say limiting my ad to CONUS makes me loose "more than 2 million customers? That would mean that everyone that lives in AK and HI are looking at ads on QRZ.
And I wonder how many of the 2,140,231 population in those 2 states are kids?
Also per the ARRL as of 10-20-2018, AK has 3520 licensed hams and HI has 3936 licensed hams for a total of 7456.
So in my opinion only, I think your numbers are a bit off!
I agree with the post below.
If what you are selling fits in a flat rate box then the shipping will be the same. If not then the rate grows the further the buyer is from my location. I know that from experience.
So like I said these are my opinions so if I am wrong you may explain to me where I am wrong. I have been wrong many times.
"Buyer pays shipping" always works.
