People talk about the products there going to sell, but where do u guys get the boxes to reduce cost by buying them in bulk? This has long been forgotten...

Search garbage cans, Goto grocery stores and wal-mart and ask for boxes.

goto usps.com and get free flat rate priority mail boxes with ebay logos on them and charge buyer the flat rate priority mail fee that it would cost to ship those boxes.

Theres always a way to find a box lol

do a search on packaging. You will find companies like chiswick and others that sell boxes in bulk.

A little bit of tape and a lot of patience makes all the difference. :lol:

I always ship Priority mail through USPS. I just go online select the size and quanity of the boxes I need and they ship them to me usually within a week. I also get my bubble wrap and foam peanuts from my local Wal-mart. If you call and ask to speak to the receiving manager they may be willing to save some for you. It just depends on the store. The receiving department gets in a ton of shipments from UPS and Fedex each day. All these boxes are packed with bubble wrap and peanuts that are just usually thrown in the garbage. I usually only pay for tape and I wish I knew where I could get that for FREE!

I buy my boxes from... where else Ebay. I do keep my eye out at work for boxes if i need some special size or just a bunch of boxes that fit my need come available. But you can get boxes from the mighty Ebay for a good price usually (about 50 to 75 cents apiece) sometimes better. You gotta look!

Why pay for boxes when you can get them for free? This also cuts into your profits unless your jacking up your shipping cost.

If you want free brand new boxes you can always get the free priority mail boxes and after packing the item wrap the box in brown paper and ship whatever way you want too. I did this with many of the suana belts I sold last year.

Jimmy I am sure the US Postal Service would love to hear that.
