ADo you guys charge per mile? And how much?

I had an order that's about 20 miles away and luckily I won't have to deliver it myself but I got to thinking that in the future I will need to be able to know how much to charge if I had to.

I probably wouldn't charge if their location is in the area, within 5 miles or so.

So please let me know how you charge for delivery. Thanks a bunch! :)

AI would estimate mileage and estimated gas usage/cost of gas and also time. Once you have that formula you can get an idea of what you find fair.

I HATE doing deliveries so I try to charge enough to discourage it. Then if I do have to deliver, at least it's worth my while.

  • Delivery - The delivery fee, when available, is $25 for orders within a 10 mile radius of Cakes by Vicki. Anywhere outside of 10 miles will be determined on a per order basis starting at $25.00 plus $1.50 per mile, round trip, for each mile over 10 from Cakes by Vicki.

  • You are of course welcome to come and pick up your cake.

AThanks for the replies! I have an idea, I just wasn't sure where to start. Thanks so much @goodvibrations, you completely have a point there.
