While I don’t sell on eBay any longer due to the fees involved, I sold for over 8 years basically depleting a household full of collectibles, books, tools,etc. I found that USPS is very reliable to use overall. If you frequent coffee shops, print shops, etc they will usually gladly retain boxes and packing materials for you as long as you regularly pick them up. I use a local firearms dealer as he hates all the boxes he receives items in and really likes it when I deplete his inventory. Buy packaging tape by the multiples, $ savings. I use confirmation of delivery on anything shipped Parcel and insure everything over $25.00. I code the boxes w/ a shipping cost, type, Insurance and if I want Confirmation of delivery. Saves a bunch of time and the counter people at P.O. really like it when you know just what you want when you step forward. Keep all receipts for validation of shipping, dates, Insurance, C/D and location shipped to. Once you get a system you might even enjoy it. You will also discover best times and days to ship on so you’re not standing in line for an hour.
