always check the next day if packages are in transit and have reached the sorting facility. Sometimes they are lazy and i find sometimes our usps packages dont leave the station until the following day. It's frustrating because it delays the delivery time. USPS sometimes sucks.
They can always order more equipment from their main facility. That is the cage clerks job. Tell her next time, educate her. From a former P.O. Employee. P.S. They don’t discipline anyone unless they don’t like them. They DO give a lot of lip service.
I love your inventory bin idea! I'm learning so much from you and also having fun watching your videos. I hope you know how much I appreciate your tips and advice. I just sold a couch I got for free for $60. A small profit but I'm taking that money to goodwill tomorrow to see what I can find. I figure I can start small and build my business. I can't wait to start this reselling journey!
Do y'all have like a schedule of when you ship things? Are you guys shipping weekly, twice a week, just curious how often y'all ship things. I have been shipping them as they are sold which has me at the post office all of the time. So just curious to see how others are doing it.
Thanks I am trying to learn something knew since I can longer work as a mechanic due to serious health issues... I can't work a normal job so I am trying to come up with starting my own to make money since I have had no income in 8 months :-(
You can go to label preferences at the top of the bulk shipping screen, and from there you can change the setting so your custom label number number shows up on the label. Then you can use the labels to pull the items. There are a lot of other improvements you could make to your storage and shipping processes that would allow you to get where one person would be able to pull and pack this many items in a couple of hours with quality control checks as well. Overall though I like the videos.
What happens if 101 different customers come in with a single package., will she warn the 101th customer that they can only take 100 packages. U.S.P.S. is SHIPPING organization. I've shipped 40-50 packages from my house and my carrier takes it no problem and hauls them to the truck. She was having a bad day. We all have them
Don't know if this helps: I used the custom label to put in the actual weight of the product, and also how to ship it. We used brand item, thus we put SKUs at the end of the title, I guess bin number is not allowed in title, thus you may stick to having it in custom lable. On eBay there is how you can print the custom lable along with invoice and packing slip, thus you print all those orders sheet, and put in each items in its order sheet - rather than you collect those items first, then have to find it again in the table.
When pricing how do you estimate cost for shipping for your heavier items? A lot varies by zip code. Also how do you determine shipping type for listing. I’ve stayed away from heavier and larger items bc of lack of knowledge in this area.
PS I love your videos! You guys are awesome!
We average our costs out, so let's say last month we shiped 100/20lb items all over the place, we'll take the average shipping price across the board and that's what we determine to be our actual cost that we add back in.
Hey guys, don't ever apologize for not putting out more frequent vlogs, I think it's extremely nice of the two of you to offer to do it at all. Both of you are more helpful than I think you realize. Thank you both very much!
So how would you handle selling a $100 item that shipped to a P.O. Box so I can’t used fedex shipped priority was $70. I shipped it but was a break even deal. Would you have canceled the order. Or do u say no shipping to P.O. Boxes in listing?
Once again another Great video!👍 you guys are sooo lucky to have all those options in the US. Here in Canada I don’t have that fast shipping option on eBay and shipping is real expensive. I think I’m moving to the US, 😎Lol Love you guys you’re the best! Thanks
This may be too personal of a question but how do yiu pay Callie? Is it like an hourly rate? At what point did it become more profitable to pay for her help than to only do what the two of you could handle, awesome vid you guys as usual tysm
Great video. One thing for everyone to note when weighing your items for the shipping label. Don't forget to add the weight of the padded envelope or box. Sometimes accounting for that weight tips the package from First Class to Priority.
Hi! Guys. Question hope you can answer it for me,I have seen you guys do this on your other videos. Example you got to ship out a t-shirt you put it in a clear bag and on the end or in the middle of the bags there is a strip of adhesive that sticks on to the bag, and that's when you put the thank you note my question is what is the name of that clear bag? I think I seen some writing on it ,not sure? Maybe some caution, choking hazard warning signs on the bags that will be my guess? They are not the same as polybags? Are they? If not what's the difference please if you can explain it will be very helpful!!! On this video you have it on the scale @ 6:40 Can you please tell me the name of them bags, of if you can send me the link to where you purchase (good price) that will be awesome!!! Like your videos very informative!!!
Thanks in advance....
Really enjoyed this video! Question, what size blue poly bags do you use? Do you use a different size for a shirt versus a pullover/sweater? Is there a size for jackets that you use or then switch to a box? Thanks!
Hey guys!! I remember watching this video and had to vent! I had 13 small packages to drop off from the weekend(yay!) which is huge for me. I'm also having problems printing labels in bulk with my new thermal printer so I wasn't able to print a scan form (I didn't even know what that was until recently lol). The lady helping me asked me how many packages I had and told me I would be holding up the line if she scanned them all. She said "I don't think I can do it"! I told her I have never had an issue before. She also said that because I get a discount from shipping them on my own, its not fair that I'm holding up the line for people that pay full price. She did help me, and it took less than 5 minutes. I do get her view to a degree, but she made me feel like absolute crap. I'm sorry for my rant guys, I absolutely love your videos!💖
Thank you; love you videos. . Wow, what a lazy and nasty women.... so.... glad they took care of it. You are a very good customer and they should be unloading your packages for you.. I know of a few post offices that all you do is pull up to the dock and they scan and unload your packages for you... Thanks again.
I've heard of you guys for a while but never really explored your guys content. Huge mistake. This is one of the most informative videos I have ever seen, as a new seller thank you so much. Made sure to sub, I have a lot to learn. Thak you!
1 small, not noticed stain, a not described scuff, a snared shoestring, or even anything trivial.... poof... selling clothes and shoes backfires. I rarely sell clothes or shoes.
My average sale price for the past 12 months is $78, average shipping is $6.12 with 761 items in that time. Average item cost with tax is $5.87.
Nickle and diming sales is a waste of resources.
Remember, packaging supplies is NOT a tax write-off; only the shipping courier cost is.
I'm part-time. Over the past 15 years, I have learned to sell higher sale items over much lower items. I tried shoes, and agree with the cordovan/kenwood leather shoes. I deal in flatware which I get for .20-.30c each and most sell for $5-$15 a piece each - sold in 4 piece of a kind, or 5 piece place setting. I do sell other things. Clothes, as mentioned, is too risky after 15 years.
I do love the vids though. Have learned a few things :D
I would choose to be very tired in my reseller’s job over my current thankless, corporate tiresome job any day. So ready to quit! My passion lies in reselling, not helping to make the CEO of my job richer by the day
OMG seriously that post office lady was something else! Sorry, but they're closing post offices around here left and right and consolidating. She should be thankful to get so many packages at once to show that her office is needed. Our tiny little small town post office here would have zero issues if I dropped off that many. They may have me take them to the back, but they'd be excited that I had a big weekend. Geez lady.
