What is the Cheapest Shipping?

I know how to make homemade filters, and I want to start selling them as a business to make some money. I'm just wondering, what is the cheapest shipping? Can you ship something in any box, or does it have to be a special one bought at the post office? I'm only 13 so I really have no idea how to ship stuff other than envelopes and flat rate boxes.

Well... really you can do the regular shipping, depending on the weight of the object plus packaging, and depending where you want to ship to You can use any box - it doesn't have to be bought at the post office. You can use bubbles wrap (here it costs very little for a large roll) to cushion to avoid any damages.

So, depending on weight and where it is shipped (I use canada post and they have a spot on their site that shows the shipping rate from one postal code to another! Your post office should have it too or you can go in to get a quote in person.

Give the buyer the "10-21 days shipping" or whatever depending where they live, and what shipping is used.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
