  • I pick up boxes anywhere I can get them. Go to the store and ask for their boxes before they dispose of them. You can also purchase them from Walmart, the dollar store, etc. Also, when you go to the main eBay page, at the top go to Community, read all you can from the Discussion Forums and the Answer Center. I am sure every question you could ask is there somewhere.

  • Nope, you just go to your post office or a shipping place (we have one called postnet that ships everything) and give it to them they box it up and ship it. That normally cost to have them do all the work, so i try to find a box at home and take there so they can add packing peanuts or whatever then you fill out a form of where it goes and thats it! its so easy! my friends and family act as if its hard and make me do everything for them, but then i get in trouble when i buy ;) LOL

  • No, just go to your post office ang get a box or from UPS or Fedex, what ever method you plan on using. Just make you include the price for shipping when you post the item up for auction.

  • You can get free priority mail boxes from the USPS site online. They ship them to your house and then you just pay the shipping price when they are weighed at the post office.

  • Don't ship anything until you have recieve payment. What shipping methods did you chose in your ebay ad? Make sure if you chose UPS, you ship UPS. And always chose a tracking number and make sure you send it to the customer after you ship. You get ranked on ebay for how quickly you ship so try to do it the day you recieve payment if possible. You can get free boxes from the UPSP with the ebay logo on them.
