Oahu moms selling on DS

I am wanting to sell some of my daughters old clothing and such items. If anyone on Oahu has sold items on here I could use some help. How much does it cost to ship stuff? i have searched online for any info and all I come up with is the flat rate boxes. But I don't want to sell something and the shipping be $5+. Is there any way to ship stuff cheaper?

Re: Oahu moms selling on DS

because shipping is so much, I've always had better luck selling locally (Facebook groups, Craigslist, etc.)

That sucks, I have never sold anything on Craig's list. I was hoping to be able to sell stuff here so I could have money in my pp account so I could buy diapers for my baby

Sorry I've never sold stuff on DS, so far still building my stash . I get excited when I see things on Craigslist since u don't see cloth diapers on there too often. I hear there's a used cloth diaper section at baby awareness but it's been too far for me to be curious enough to see.

Re: Oahu moms selling on DS

I've sold stuff on here. It is worth it buy poly-mailers. I got mine from amazon. They were like $7 for a hundred. I usually spend about $3 per diaper to mail things. I use the machine at the post office so I can look at all the different shipping options and pick the cheapest. Sometimes flat rate is the cheapest. It just depends.

Re: Oahu moms selling on DS

I have sold many cloth diapers on ebay. One pocket diaper with two inserts costs usually around 2.80 $ to ship to the mainland (I wrap them nicely in brown paperbags at home). If it`s more than one diaper and it`s kinda heavy you should consider the small flatrate box. Selling on ebay works great (I also wanr the $ in my paypal for other diapers) and I will soon try to sell here too (you need a certain amount of posts).
