This is part one on how to use paypal to ship items from home, without the hassle of going to the post office. AND how to save everyone money!
Here’s another breakdown:
Okay, 1: buy a shipping or food scale. can be found cheaply on the internet or at walmart
2: Buy POLYMAILERS on ebay: can find about 100 for less then 10$ on ebay. I’d go for the bigger sizes like 11×13.
3: Get a printer or have access to a library or a friend or whatever.
4: Weigh your items BEFORE setting a price, so you don’t get screwed.
5: If its under 16oz, it can ship FIRST CLASS for under .65
6: If its over 16oz OR multiple items, it can ship in a padded flat rate envelope that you can order online at usps. com for free.
7: Invoice your buyer
8: when they pay, click “print shipping label”
9: Enter the shipping weight, shipping method, etc
10: click “calculate shipping price” , pay for the shipping label.
11: Print shipping label.
12: tape label onto package.
13: Take to the PO, or leave in mailbox your mailman will take them with your regular mail OR you can go to usps .com and request a carrier package pick up and they will come to your door and pick it up when your regular mail comes.
Honestly, this saves everyone money. I buy in mailers in bulk because i sell so much, so its not really costing me much per sale.
Hope this helps. It truly is a piece of cake. Don’t be intimidated.
