Here is what it cost me to ship 3 jars of salsa. You have to remember we are shipping a package that is 11x6x4, weighs 5.36 lbs, but USPS has you to round up to the next ½ pound. That is why a 5.5 lb weight.
Here is the breakdown of the actual shipping cost, so if you have a cheaper system, please let me know.
These are hard costs and do not include the labor to make the box. wrap the individual jars, bubble wrap the jar, stuff into a box, seal the box, attach the fragile label, shipping label and then drive 3.5 miles and back to deliver to the shipping point.
