Know your shipping charges
Pack your item for shipment after you take pictures—but before you list—so you can have accurate package weight and dimensions to include during the listing process.
Package your items carefully
Make sure your item arrives safely by packing it securely. Use a sturdy box that's the right size, make sure to include enough packing material, and tape it securely. Find out more about packaging items.
Buyers typically want their items quickly, so the faster you can get your items shipped, the happier your buyers will be. Consider offering either same business day or 1 business day handling, and tell your buyer when an item shipped.
Tip: By meeting certain shipping conditions, you can automatically receive 5-star detailed seller rating for shipping time.
