Quick, what does it cost to ship a diaper?

Trying to figure this out real quick before I post some diapers. I'm sure it varies but what's the average? How much is the packaging or do you just use like a big envelope? Who do you go through, UPS, USPS, fedex etc? Do sellers on here usually get delivery confirmation too? Thanks!

Yes you just use a poly mailer or the like (plastic envelope). Use USPS and on average one diaper costs less than $2 to mail first class with a DC if you print the postage from paypal. A little more from USPS since you have to pay full price for a DC from there. Always get a DC to cover and protect yourself.

I usually estimate shipping to be $2 for one diaper and $1 for each additional if they buy more than 1.

Re: Quick, what does it cost to ship a diaper?

Sorry for the hijack, but what size poly mailer do folks use? If I was to buy a 50-pack, what would be most likely to fit any given diaper (or two or three)?

Options are 6x9, 7.5x10.5, 9x12, 10x13, etc...

With DC it usually runs me just under $3, $2.85ish.

Most diapers have ranged in the $2.50-$3 range to ship after DC (which is required on this site) I reuse the polymailers I get my diapers in :-)
