Whenever I sold something online (Poshmark, Tradesy, Vinted or Mercari) I always think as if I am giving a gift to somebody and I want to wrap it just like a Christmas present. I wanted it to be well presented the way I wanted to received them. I hope this step by step packing will somehow give you an idea on how to make your items amazing. Your wrapping might be as great as mine; keep it simple and well turned out.
1.Shipping Label – once you sold an item, go to their website or app to print the label or you can get it from your email.
2.Inspect your item – check it carefully and thoroughly make sure that the product is in good condition, no damages, dust or whatsoever. If there is any changes with your item, let the buyer know asap (you don’t want your item to be return to you and get a negative feedback). Clean it and make it look presentable and appealing.
3.Wrap Time – once everything is good to go, wrap it! You can use recycled tissue paper or buy one from your local stores. You can add stickers or a clear tape, laces or strings whichever you like.
5.Thank You cards – show your buyer how thankful you are. You can buy cards from your local stores or just make one. If it is a store bought make sure that you write your thank you notes by hand and for handmade, I personally print my message and names are handwritten. If you don’t want to spend any dime or don’t have the time, just get a notepad and write it from there. What matter is you never forget to say thank you.
6.Swags – are optional only! You can use coupons from mails or magazines, you can make your own coupon or you can add any item that you want.
7.Packaging – place your sold items inside the box, swags and the thank you note on top. I added additional tissue paper inside since I don’t want my items to keep on stirring while on transit. You can also add bubble wrap if you have one. This part is important, make sure you’re using the correct box. If you are using a USPS box they must be regular Priority Mail boxes (a standard brown box will work too). Priority Mail Flat Rate, Express Mail, or Regional Mail boxes are NOT allowed.
8.Shipping! – at last, you’re done and your package is good to go. You can setup a pickup with USPS online and drop it in the corner mailbox (if it fits) or drive to your nearest post office (which I usually do since I am keeping the receipts). Please let your buyer know as well that you already shipped the item just to give them a heads up.
Once your item is ship, all you have to do is wait until your buyer receives them and pray that he/she will accept it right away with no problems; you will get your funds in no time.
