If you ship through ebay, you get free tracking. You'll pay more than a stamp, but at 1 oz (this is the minimum) it should only be about $1.00 $2.00, and your buyers will want tracking. Plus it automatically emails the buyer all the tracking info when you purchase the postage. It's just much simpler than doing it yourself. I would recommend shipping through ebay, especially if you are looking at a lot of volume.

I use these labels and have been pretty happy with them. Labels printed through ebay are default 4x6, but if I'm not mistaken you can edit these settings on if you have a thermal printer or something like that. If you don't want to buy labels, you can just print them on paper and tape them to the envelope with clear packing tape.

You can use the USPS calculator to check prices at different weights.

You get 50 free listings per month, then its $0.30 per listing after that.

If you're brand new on ebay, I think there might be limits on how many items you can sell per month. Not sure what they are, though.

Edit for getting the USPS pricing wrong.

Looks like a pretty good resource. Although the site is all over the place lol. I was actually looking at this book which seems like a good "reference guide/bible"

Sorry to hear that you have problems with the weighmax, you should consider having it replaced, mine lasted 3+ years before starting to have smaller problems, and I can still use it.

I use two scales myself, I have a weighmax that is more or less crapping out on me, turns itsef on/off all the time and won't tare properly sometimes, maybe I should send it in for warranty replacement...

I've had mine for 3+ years and used it to weigh ~1500 shipments before it started acting up, and I can still use it although with a little difficulty.

The second scale I use is this:

Search for 1000g pocket scale on ebay and sort lowest price from US seller, you should not pay more than $7 for it

Since I mostly sell smaller items I can weigh ~90% of all shipments on it, it's much faster and easier to use than the weighmax scale, and it's small enough for me to keep on my desk.
Cons: battery powered, but it will last a long time still, can only handle ~2-3 lbs, somewhat difficult to weigh larger packages since you need to see the display at all times, I put an empty roll of tape on it to raise packages up and it works great
pros: small, quick, easy, extremely good accuracy, very cheap

Pick one depending on what you sell, you can always search by customer reviews on amazon


Seems to be good

Definitely get a scale. Seriously a great investment for saving as much as possible on shipping. Every ounce counts. I bought this scale and love it. Also make sure you round up when doing USPS. If your package weighs 4.1 oz, mark it as 5.

u/ChefPD · 1 pointr/Ebay

I have this one It's very good quality and it was recommended to me by a lot of people before I purchased. Having used it myself, I vouch for it completely. Nice bright display with big numbers and seems very accurate. Also whether this is for weightloss or not, /r/loseit knows ALOT about scales.

EDIT: Nevermind.

I'd say re-stocking with items.

Boxes: If you live in a building, use the ones people throw away that you can find in the basement or go around your neighborhood and get some from the curb. I also like to reuse Amazon mailers.

Label printer: At an entry level, it's probably most cost effective to use the printer you already have or to buy a cheap laser printer like a Brother HL-L2300D that you can use to also print other stuff.

Scale: You can buy one for Amazon for ~$20-30, so I'd definitely say buy one if you don't already have one, as buying USPS (especially) labels of the correct weight via ebay/PayPal is cheaper than paying retail at the post office.

im not familiar with VA laws and codes, so what i know wont be of much help.

you will find the tab labeled 'ebay for business' helpful

your home office can be used as a workspace, and is even tax deductible. it does not have to be zoned for commercial use.

you may find this helpful as well

u/tielknight · 1 pointr/Ebay

Something like this Accuteck will do fine for most sellers until you get into shipping big & heavy stuff, otherwise it's all about getting your own packaging as you will get gouged at the post office(or wherever you're shipping from) if you don't use something like their Flat-Rate packaging(that's free).

Ebay is very a good source for packaging though you do want a general idea of what kind of packaging you need.

u/CarrowCanary · 1 pointr/Ebay

We're in the UK, so we only need tracking for anything that sells for more than £62. Anything below that is covered by Royal Mail by just having a receipt.

Those are pretty much the kind of toploaders we use. Sleeve-wise we use ones like these. Some prefer these instead because they're cheaper, but they're too loose in the toploaders for us to be comfortable with using.

I just buy these half sheets stickers and print it from regular printer.

It comes out to less than 4 cents per sticker. It works great and I didn't have to buy a label printer just for printing labels / have it clustering my desk

u/1977topps · 2 pointsr/Ebay

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/AlwaysBi · 1 pointr/Ebay

Yeah but the Stargate box set is one big box.

here’s the box set on amazon

My local Prime Now has 6 rolls of Duck HD Clear (328 yards total) for $9

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/Irlyh8usernames · 1 pointr/Ebay

Moen. I am selling handles to a faucet still in the original package. I've sold probably 100 sets of these in the past 3 years and never had an issue. I have used the same picture since I started. It was exactly this this picture. The tutorial took all of 5 minutes to do, but still.

u/Jsalz · 1 pointr/Ebay

Here you go plenty to choose from. The cheapest I found with manual and case is around $30 with shipping.

u/benjaminxavier · 2 pointsr/Ebay

Not endorsing one product or price, but there are a ton of options out there.

Also, grammatically "vinyls" is not correct. What you're selling is a record album pressed on vinyl. So it can be vinyl records or vinyl albums, but the word vinyl cannot be pluralized.

u/Luxray · 1 pointr/Ebay

What price do you normally start tracking at? I was thinking anything over $10.

I've been putting my cards in something similar to this when shipping.

u/Chefbexter · 2 pointsr/Ebay

Sometimes I re-use shipping boxes and I cover the previous labels and any bar codes or words on the box to avoid confusion at the post office. (And they bitch if I don't). I may have used 2 or 3 half-sheet adhesive labels, which made the weight go up by 0.2 oz. That was just an example of the post office being picky.
