When packing a product, make sure your item fits snuggly. Measure the item and select a box or envelope with enough extra room for additional packing materials. Using bubble wrap or biodegradable packing peanuts for padding will get your item there in good condition. A snug fit is best so the item won’t move around and get damaged during delivery. And remember, it’s okay to reuse boxes, as long as they’re in good shape and old labels are covered or removed.
Flat Rate Boxes are free from the U.S. Postal Service and are available in a wide variety of sizes. You can pick them up at your local post office or order them through eBay and have them delivered for free. Shipping for a flat rate is just another way to make shipping easy as an eBay seller.
In addition to USPS, UPS, and FedEx, there's also a wide variety of retailers offering shipping supplies online. You can even purchase supplies right here on eBay. Having the supplies you need on hand will help you get your item shipped faster.
