Shipping Bettas

Howdy, everyone. I recently decided to sell/break up my sorority. Details in another thread. Thus, I kneed to know how to ship. I'm 14, so I don't have much funds. A.K.A it needs to be a fairly cheap, secure way to ship. Do I need heat packs? What size of box? How do I receive the money from the buyer? Is a detailed walk through of gathering supplies, packing, and overall shipping possible? The sticky helped, but I need more details. Thanks. :3

If you change your mind or for anyone else reading there's a sticky at the top of this section on how to ship Betta.

As I said, I read the sticky. I just need to know the size of the box, and sending/receving money, etc. Stuff thats not mentioned on the sticky.

I'm still probably shipping out Luna.

You can get the USPS 7x7x6 box for free from usps.com. Just google search: "USPS Box 4". Ask your local Petco or LFS for the fish bags. They might not give it to you if you're asking for, like, 100. But since you're shipping only one fish that's only two bags. I like to add a drop of Prime in the water before tying up the bag. You need a heat pack if highest temp in both your location and the destination is below 55F. Get them from eBay. The most used brand is called UniHeat. Get the 72-hour one for 3-Day Priority and 60-hour for anything below. Stock up on junk mail or newspaper. If you can't find styrofoam liners they can serve as a packing material. Stuff the box with as many junk mail as you can surrounding the fish bag. Don't forget to tape it up with a heavy-duty shipping tape. Print shipping label from PayPal for lower cost. One fish is 1lb 10oz, and it's another 1lb for every extra fish in the box.

Good luck.
