Re: How do you send diapers?

I always send the cheapest way (usually 1st class) and always with DC!! I figure that way the people that are buying from me feel more comfortable. And, as a seller, I feel more comfortable, knowing I have proof!

Usually cheapest (FC) w/ delivery confirmation, but also depends on what it is and who its going to.

Thanks for that info! I thought just having a recipt fom the po was enough proof. I guess I should try to always use DC.

Re: How do you send diapers?

I send it the cheapest way. I stopped using DC because the post office rarely scans the code anyways so it just shows as having been notified or recieved. I decided it was a waste of money. I would ship faster if it was requested and I would use DC if requested though.

ETA Now that I ship with paypal shipping DC is always included though.

Re: How do you send diapers?

I ship EVERYTHING with delivery confirmation ~ even donated goodies or items that are FFS. I like to keep track and would hate it if something came back missing. I ship First Class unless the Priority rate is similiar, $.30 is not biggie to me and generally if it is less than $1 difference I upgrade.

98% of the time its FC with a DC# since I print my labels from PP - DC# is mandatory (which I like).

If its over the FC limit it goes priority with DC#

On a rare occasion I ship UPS if its really heavy or a lot of stuff (DH has the UPS guy picking up other packages every day at his work so I dont have to make any special trips or anything).

Re: How do you send diapers?

I agree with most everyone else about cheapest with dc, except for sometimes I do use priority because the packaging is free. So you have to take that into consideration too.
