Unsure about local people buying my stuff and NOT paying shipping...

I'm trying to point people to my etsy site as much as possible and it would be GREAT if they could pay that way, too. However, my local customers don't need to pay shipping and it seems that if they order from my site they have to pay the shipping, too. Is there a way for them to have the option to NOT pay the shipping?

Wow, you guys are fast! I don't really know why I would want my local customers to purchase through Etsy now that I think about it...
Now that I'm thinking about it, some of my labels and stuff I use on my boxes only has my etsy site info on it. No other information and I want people to be able to order without having to pay shipping if there is no other way to get in touch with me.
So...I guess I can refund the shipping if they do end up ordering through etsy and I probably need to put my e-mail/phone number on my labels.
Can I put that I will refund shipping cost for local customers on the information part of each item?
Sorry, it I am confusing anyone...I'm thinking and writing at the same time (and that is not always good)! :)

you could offer a revised listing. other than that, I have no clue how to do it through etsy. if it's a matter of being able to accept payment at your house er um shop then a computer that you could allow them to use they can log in to paypal, if they have it, and send you money that way. I think paypal also allows u to request money... not sure if the request can be paid by credit after u send it... but if so... all they have to have is email!
