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.

I used stickers to accessorize my packaging
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.
