Here is a list of my issues (some may be somewhat solved)
- Pillows are not heavy, but they are bulky. So, if I send four pillows or one pillow makes little difference because they weigh practically nothing. That is part of the reason why about 90% of my pillow products in the future are going to be covers! Put them in a large envelope and mail.
- Packaging! What to do? For my first order, I took the little owl pillow over to UPS and asked for advice. They packed it up and it cost a lot of money. Yeah, that is not the way to go. Second order, I packaged the pillows, all five of them in a large box and shipped them from the UPS store. The cost was right around $11. Then, I had two orders this week. The post office cost me $11.65 for "If it fits, it ships." Fed Ex charged $13.33 for an envelope and shipping.
So, if you know how to ship and have some pointers, please share with me. You can leave comments on this page, or my Facebook page, or e-mail me at 715Pillows@gmail.com. You don't even have to be a follower on this page to leave a comment. Seriously, I need help. Please help me though this confusing maze of the shipping world.
