All righty, my friends the hivemind.
I've got a small business, with an Etsy store. I ship mainly 6x10 bubble mailers and I've got a pretty decent idea on the price. Sometimes I'll do direct sales with Paypal and I may at some point in the future upgrade to taking payment options directly through my site. That is a future ASK though.
(Saw this, but its from 2010)
I'll also occasionally send other items out in boxes, some of them large boxes, different collectibles, stuff I want to get rid of, etc.
I'm thinking of investing a little money in streamlining the postage and shipping.
Etsy does shipping labels
Ebay does shipping labels
USPS does shipping online
Paypal has shipping services
The first two really don't work, because they aren't all inclusive for everything that I need to ship.
I need to buy a new printer anyway at this time, and I am assuming a scale.
I currently use USPS and ship most things first class, which works out to be pretty affordable.
I live in the sticks, in South Central PA, and there is a post office by home and work. UPS and Fed Ex locations are further away.
Most of the options look pretty decent and comparable, but I wanted to check with you guys and see if any of you had any personal experience with this.
I need delivery confirmation, possibly insurance, and being able to put in the box dimensions and weight and get a shipping price quote is important.
Any other words of wisdom, I'm always listening.
Thanks in advance gang!
