Without knowing more details about your ipod (if you dropped it, spilled water on it, bent the charging port etc), these are my suggestions:

The first thing to try would be a different charger and a different outlet, to ensure that those are not the culprits.

Batteries do have a limited life span; after a certain number of charges (~2000) they will start to fail until they eventually can't hold a charge anymore. You could be due for a battery replacement. This guide, up through step 16, outlines how to do this.

You could also have an issue with the charging port, a replacement is outlined here, through step 27.

Good luck!

I think you should check your charger on another apple device to see if it charges that and if it doesn't its not your ipod its your charger
