If it'll fit they'll take it. If it doesn't then you will have to schedule a pick up (but again need to have a priority package that is getting picked up to)

How do you know how much postage?

Re: cheapest way to ship covers

You have to know the exact weight of the package to be able to calculate postage. If you want to calculate how much it will cost if you take it to the post office, you can go to usps.com. It costs more with PayPal, but the delivery confirmation is cheaper, so if you have a small postal scale (or a small food scale would probably work) and you're selling something, you'll save money buying the postage online.

As far as poly-mailers go, I recommend saving them when you get them. If they are too big, they are easy to cut down to size.
