I have a website that has an online store where people can order standard pieces and shipping costs are automatically added upon checkout.

In this situation, do merchants usually charge a flat shipping rate that will cover them, regardless of the distance to be shipped?

In other words, I’m wondering if I should charge a shipping fee that will cover me clear across the country even if the piece is only being shipped, say, 200 miles from my shop.

I don’t think my online payment system accommodates varying shipping costs depending on distance.
