Everyone couple of weeks, someone gives a link to this tape on amazon when it goes on sale, and it seems a lot of folks here are happy with it.
Smart phone scanner app
Godaddy Bookkeeping subscription
Thermal label makers such as Dymo 450 plus House Labels 30334 R (make sure any labels you get are removable)
Regular printer and half sheet labels for printing
"Sell as set", "Do Not Separate" etc stickers
Boxes large enough send in the items
Packing material to pack around the items
EDIT: Forgot about tape. You will need lots of it. This is the best tape in the world.
Buy mailers here.
Print postage at a discount through paypal with this link after you're logged in.
Buy a scale to weigh packages if you don't already own one. Even a cheap $10-20 one from amazon or eBay, whatever.
EDIT : The USPS website is good for ordering FREE supplies as well. You'll eventually need small flat rate boxes at least. I wouldn't pay for anything through them, the markup is crazy. Amazon has 6 pack rolls of tape atm for $7 as an add-on item as well.
I tend to use snippings of cardboard I have from boxes and shipments I receive (amazon, ebay, whatever). Make a little book of cardboard to tape the coins/bars in flips or bags inside of. That then goes inside of a bubble mailer. I then tape that up very well, wholly enclosing a shipping label I generate at paypal. I use this tape copiously.
If it goes into a SFRB, or MFRB, I also use strapping tape to seal up the edges and corners.
I have never needed to ship via any method other than USPS thus far.
This is what a lot of us use
Sparco 6 Rolls Sealing Tape, 48mm x 50m, Transparent, Heavy Duty (330ft) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005P7P9M2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_JnmkxbBKGZVGS
I like the sparco tape that's somewhat popular here. Only when they go on sale for $6.99 or $7.99. No way would I pay $15. It's thick and works well enough for me. But I am not a packing tape guru. Some guys need quiet tape, etc. When on sale, these are great. https://www.amazon.com/Sparco-Sealing-Transparent-Heavy-Rolls/dp/B005P7P9M2
I bought this tape from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005P7P9M2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1
2 bucks a roll at 164 feet/roll, and it is a little thicker tape. Works great and is a pretty good quality. I will never buy anything else again.
I buy the same tape every time when it's on sale.
Those are the supplies I use most.
Also, every once in a while eBay sends me a $10-15 coupon in my Messages of eBay and I use that to order 100 or so poly mailers and a few bubble mailers in different sizes that I don't already have.
This sometimes goes to $7, but its a little high priced now. It's the best tape out there:
Also, the ebay branded tape is very good. If you get the ebay shipping supplies coupon, you can get a lot of tape for a good price.
I'll warn you: once you pop, you just can't stop.
Heads up [Sparco] (https://www.amazon.com/Sparco-Sealing-Transparent-Heavy-Rolls/dp/B005P7P9M2/ref=pd_nav_hcs_bia_t_3?_encoding=UTF8&amp;psc=1&amp;refRID=18C0RCRXDNG1JMYXZZTH) is on sale again at $7.97.
It typically gets posted when its on sale but I figured it wasn't worth a whole post since it's happened several times recently and most people check this thread anyway.
I've been using this tape because I saw it recommended on this sub. It gets the job done! Sometimes it goes on sale for half the price it is now.
Here you go.
I just got this, and it is crazy strong. Gonna keep using it for sure.
Amazon. I like this stuff for the price.
Here doesn't really look predictable at all. It looks like 3 times its gotten cheap, also if you need a lot now, there is a 6 pack of 6 rolls, and amazon is selling them "used" which probably just means that they have some packaging damage for about $60 for 36 rolls, not the best, but still a pretty good price, especially if you need it soon.
Easily the best tape I've ever used, and I've tried a number of different kinds.
They regularly go on sale for $8.99 or sometimes $7.99.
The Boxery for polybags, bubble mailers, and cardboard boxes .
I also use lots of free packing supplies from USPS priority mail.
I usually buy newsprint and bubble wrap off whoever's cheapest on Amazon Prime or Ebay when I need it.
I buy Sparco tape from amazon whenever it's on sale. Someone here usually puts out a BOLO post when it goes on sale.
I buy this when it goes on sale:
I bought it for $6.99 with free prime shipping last time around.
Scotch is great if you're shipping light weight items.
I use http://www.amazon.com/Richards-Company-Package-Sealing-SPR60041/product-reviews/B005P7P9M2
stronger, thicker, longer
I ship 50 pounds regularly and this tape has never failed. Plus it's cheaper per foot.
