Stupid question regarding packing for shipping?

This is probably a stupid question but I'm pretty new to the whole ebay thing.

So here's my dilemma. I have a brand new shoebox with shoes that I just sold. Is there a way to just wrap it up and send it or do I have to find another box to put it in? Of course I'm wondering if there's a way to save "bulk" on my package so I'm not spending so much in shipping.

Thanks for any help!

  • Yep! Go buy the brown wrap ecspecially if you plan to sell on ebay often because it just comes in handy. You take u p the shoe box, and wrap in the brown wrap and tape that up. Then ship it off.

  • you can use that brown shipping paper. I just received something that was wrapped in that stuff. Just make sure to use lots of tape.

  • The paper works, also you can get free boxes from the Post office if you're shipping Priority Mail, they have one that's called the "shoe box"

  • Where can I get that paper? Or is it just sold at the post office? Does Walmart carry it or anybody else?

  • I have also used plain ol brown paper bags when I used to sell on ebay. They work well but Im sure the brown wrap works better. Just use LOTS of tape!
