    What are your methods in shipping shoes. I just got into the ebay thing and want to find the fastest and cheapest.
    UPS, USPS, Fedex?

    Well probably just ground mail.

    Thanks

    Sounds good.
    Do i have to buy my own box to ship it in?

    Do they offer a box?

    Also since its Post office do I give it to the guys and just tell them where to ship?

    usps online printing... easier and cheaper. Also if you have a smart phone theres probably an app and you can scan the label to make it easier for yourself to keep track. They will also pick it up if you print online...

    not sure how to embed but this video is pretty helpful, some times the usps ppl give me a hard time for modifying the flat rate box so usually i wrap it in brown shipping paper. heres the link

    Depends on the weight, but either USPS Priority Mail O-1095 box or the USPS Priority Medium Flat Rate Box. They all come with free tracking. For Adidas shoes or some Nike shoes, you can use the USPS Shoe Box since it fits to size. Order the boxes from the USPS web site which is free. Schedule a pickup on the USPS web site if you live in a house whenever you need to ship something.

    If you need to modify the box,

    USPS, double boxed, with delivery confirmation is how I've always done it. I've always found it to be cheaper than UPS or Fed Ex.
