Buy a scale. I got mine for $20 on Amazon and it weighs up to 75LB but also can weigh in ounces.

Anything under 13 oz. can ship first class for usually less than $2-4. I use poly mailers and bubble mailers for this purpose.

(I don't know if these are the best choices for your purposes, do some research on what size items you typically sell and buy mailers accordingly. These are what I buy and they fit anything from DVD's, small trinkets, and XXL jackets.)

Buy packing tape, bubble wrap, poly mailers and/or bubble mailers.

Packing tape:

Bubble wrap:

Poly mailers:

You print your shipping through eBay/PayPal because they give you a considerably decent discount and then can print straight from whatever printer you may have access to and tape it onto the package. It's acceptable to write it on a piece of paper and tape it, but then you have to wait in line at the post office (with prepaid labels, you can just drop it in the package drop box) and pay for tracking there.

  • A smartphone
  • A PayPal account
  • A postal scale -- I have this one
  • Half sheet sticker labels for print at home postage
  • Goo Gone is magical for removing sticker residue

    Depending on what you commonly sell, bulk buy padded mailers / boxes for that size. Stop tossing any boxes & padding material from shipments you receive. Figure out somewhere to store that to use for your outgoing shipments. A good chunk of the boxes & padding I use is recycled from another shipment I got in.

    Definitely getting yourself set up to manage printing postage from home vs. waiting in line at the P.O. should be a big priority overall. There is no way I would enjoy flipping half as much if I had to wait in those lines to mail every item.

Here is the scale I use. It is $19.99 and weighs up to 75 pounds. I have used it for a few months and am very happy with it.

u/rabidmonkeys · 2 pointsr/comicswap

There is much more to this, topics like shipping usps, and media mail, or parcel post using insurance is critical and nothing is more important tracking information (and delivery confirmation - if you have a big trade).
I'm hoping others have opinions as well.

Also, I would buy a shipping scale. This is the scale I use

u/SnowmanOlaf · 2 pointsr/FulfillmentByAmazon

You're right. I'm sorry I came off condescending. I just did research on all local options and you are absolutely correct, the prices are outrageous. Get amazon prime, or a free trial, and you'll receive it in 2 days. I understand since this is your first shipment, you wanna send it out NOW, but just wait til you get the scale. This is the one I own. Works great. You don't need a 330 lb scale. 75 lb is perfect.

u/LavernicaDeLuca · 2 pointsr/poshmark

I've had this one for at least 5 years now and it still works flawlessly and it has been 100% accurate for me too. I think I've changed out the battery a grand total of 1 time, I lost the power cable a long time ago so it's been battery only for years.

A little tip for eBay, make sure you weight with packaging. This is mostly relevant for stuff that must ship in a box but make sure you are accounting for the weight that packaging adds, I made that mistake far too often when I started on eBay :)

I recently bought this off Amazon for 20 bucks. It was suggested by a few members on here. Its can go up to 75lbs. The other day I took a package to the Post office and the lady remarked how exact I was with the weight.

u/Mr_Algorithm · 2 pointsr/Flipping

I bought this one 2 years ago and love it. Haven't had any issues with it and I haven't had to change the batteries at all (it also came with an AC cord to plug it in)

I have no affiliation just sharing what works for me.

u/IANALAMA · 1 pointr/Ultralight

Definitely worth getting a scale at this point. I use this one, works great for items of all sizes, and a good max weight to get your entire weight including food and water

u/kmully · 1 pointr/Flipping

You can't as far as I know. You could take it to UPS to get it weighed, but if you buy the shipping label from them you lose Amazon's extremely low discounted shipping through UPS. For now you need to find a scale, UPS is fine if they'll let you do it without making you buy something, then go back to your place and print the label and bring it back.

Buy a $20 scale on Amazon for next time. I got this one 1.5 years ago and it's going strong.

u/smackjack · 1 pointr/Ebay

You need to get a scale. You should never be guessing how much something weighs.

This is the one I got. It works really well.

u/Logical_Psycho · 1 pointr/Flipping

It goes up to 75 lbs. (needed something with a higher capacity for fba).

Battery or ac.

Works for what I needed.

u/nasieo · 1 pointr/Flipping

I picked this one up about a month ago and its been great so far.

u/RainbowSpectrum · 1 pointr/Flipping

I have this one. Weighmax 2822-75LB postal shipping scale, Battery and AC Adapter Included Weighmax

Cheap. Works great up to 75 lbs. and is accurate with ups scales.

u/drewbage1847 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I drive to my shop - it's 45 minutes away. (They host my homebrew club and it wouldn't feel right to me to not give them the majority of my business - fortunately, they're awesome). Having said that I usually get together with a few folks every year and buy a giant supply of base malt.

For a scale, I think you'll be better served with two separate scales. I don't trust the large electronic scales for smaller measurements

This is the one I use for my grain.

u/Toastedpubes · 1 pointr/Flipping <<<<Scale

What type of box to put it in: If you sell a xbox 360 game, a padded bubble mailer will work just fine. Your ultimate goal is to limit the weight, while still securing the package. Shipping prices are based on weight/dimensions. If youre shipping something larger like a blender, then you would find a box big enough to fit it, while also allowing room for padding.

I stay away from mailing large things because its a pain in the ass to find a box big enough, and then after padding, shipping is like $30. All depends what your ROI is.

u/jm1982 · 1 pointr/Flipping

I bought this one in 2010 and it still works

It's $19 on Amazon so pretty reasonable .

u/joxyo · 1 pointr/FulfillmentByAmazon

I use this one:

$20 and does the job.
