Talking Selling Duckweed!

Hi everyone! I started my own NPT about a month ago, and I have to say... Everything exploded in growth, especially the duckweed! It's covering about the whole top of my 10g, so I decided instead of throwing it out I'd see if anyone wanted any first.
I wanted to sell about a handful in a bag at $1.50 plus shipping costs.
I accept payments through paypal.
I can probably sell about...4-5 bags.
This is my first time shipping plants, so I'll try my best and mimic the method in how others have shipped their plants to me, but any shipping tips would be greatly appreciated.
Here are a couple pictures:

I would like some I think it gets sucked up in the filter or something. Everytime I have it, it goes MIA and I dont have anything that would eat it.

you can probably ship it in a ziploc bad with some water, wrapped in newspaper for insulation. I dont now if they need heatpacks since its still winter..?

popcorndeer, I'll go to the post office tomorrow and see how much it'll cost for you :) but I'll definitely try.
and xShainax oh my goodness! hahaha goldfish are quite the silly ones.
Tikibirds, I can give you a bag :) what's your zip code? You can message me it if you don't feel comfortable posting it here.

If all goes according to plan, that would be two bags, so 3 left.
I'll find out shipping costs asap and message you guys the total price :)

Just for future referance -- I wont say anything about the canada part...but duckweed is known as a noxious weed in a lot states, and you should always check the regulations in your state and state you are shipping too before you send it. If USPS (or whatever postal system canada uses) caught it and it were illegal to transport in that state you could get a pretty big fine.
Just dont want anyone to get in trouble!
