Default Shipping costs

I'm trying to work out my shipping costs and could do with a little advice. For example what should I do with a product that has no weight assigned to it? Other than a picture I have no clue what the product weighs to base my USPS price on? Should I just google the product online and see what everyone else has for its weight? I'm sure I could do it manually, but is there an easier way?

Tried to PM STC, the girl that responded was not very helpful. She said if the manufacturers don't give it to us we don't put it in. Nice... but what then is the best way to deal with this...?

Sorry if the question sounds silly, but this is my first attempt at organising shipping for this many products via drop ship and I don't want any surprises down the track

I am in the exact same boat... the only way to cover it is to charge extra for shipping on all goods to cover your losses on items that maybe heavy but don't have the weight listed... which makes things very hard to compete with other stores... It would be nice if STC could work this one out...

Default Keep it simple ...

I went through all those thoughts like you guys are ... and in a nut shell, pick a flat rate fee and in the long run everything will work out in the wash ... many will be a little under and some will be over, but in the long run it will all work out.
