For shipping, I will go flat rate whenever possible and if it's super expensive to ship, I will put the shipping at half. I also add to the listing that if they want to save on shipping costs, I will work with them. I have sold stamps without the clam shell and just put them in a bubble envelope for example. With lots of people unmounting stamps these days, that is a nice option for some.
Edit to clarify: When I say "shipping at half" I mean if it will cost $20 to ship, I will charge $10
