    Well, here are the options:
    1.) First class: for items under 13 ozs. ---- I use this the most, guaranteed 2-5 day delivery
    2.) Priority: items 14 ozs. and up ---- I use this frequently, and if you need it there in 3 days or less.
    3.) Media mail: any kind of book or educational material---- anything like that, definitely the cheapest
    4.) Expedited: I never use it because it is so expensive.
    5.) Parcel post: Rarely use because it can take 2-9 days and may cost the same or more than Priority.... is rarely cheaper

    I don't sell outside of the US so anything else, I don't know. I just know the shipping is astronomical. As for how I do it packing wise, My mother and I buy poly envelopes and ship in those, or I bring home boxes from work. We have tape, bubble wrap, tissue paper, scissors, and a scale we bought from ebay. I print off the labels from home because you get and added discount from USPS/UPS for that, then tape it and you can drop them off or schedule a pick up.

    Thank you for answering. Do you ship with tracking? This is the part that is really confusing to me. I would like to but it is really expensive compared to the cost of what I'm selling. BUT I really don't want customers complaining that they never got their item.

    Since I ship from home, tracking is automatically included in my purchase. Shipping with priority always includes tracking no matter where you ship from. I would always ship with tracking because if someone says they don't get the package, would you rather be out the extra $0.90 to prove they are lying and be covered under the seller protection, or $30 for the item and get a strike?
