i will give you the best free hint, never ever use fed-ex to ship to philippines, their customs people will flag it and charge you 10 dollars a day storage just because they know they can do it, they will make up total crap reason why they did it. they know you must then create a fed-ex account and pay the fee, and 100 dollars is if your lucky and catch it fast.

Fedex doesn’t have their own customs agents. They have their own brokers which usually speeds up the delivery time. If the shipper decides to use their own customs broker then there is usually a substantial delay. I work at a hub and we have hundreds of international packages that are held in a secure customs cage until the government’s customs agents clear the package.

That's the Philippines for you. Importing is nearly impossible. Probably because they have a monopoly on the goods. Small businesses can't afford to pay off customs. Not much has changed either. The Philippines is okay if you want to export something like garments though.
Mr. Shadowman (9 months ago)
enforceOM so you know what customs is? You are assuming that someone working for the state somehow got them to finance a huge operation to support/ keep in check private companies. That's the entry point in the country, the very company that delivers your parcel. They do the actual physical work.

I have a question. I’m hoping someone reading through the comments can answer it. Say I’m shipping something through priority mail, and I use a regular priority mail box, can I crumple up and use a few priority mail tyvek envelopes as packing material to fill the empty spaces? Also, say I am again using a priority mail box, to ship priority mail, can I use the padded flat rate envelope to protect items inside? Can I get in trouble for doing this? I’m other words, would this be considered a criminal offense resulting in a misdemeanor charge etc? I mean I know not to use priority mail if I’m not shipping through priority mail, but I mean, in this case, I am shipping through priority mail, so why not make the free supplies useful?

You have to pay per pound for the small cubed box can cost more than medium flat rate box

Dear Sir / Madam, I am writing to you to raise an issue about: Delivery The issue that I have experienced was: I am currently living in Thailand, am disabled and bedridden, I purchased a Patient hoist in UK and needed it shipping here to Thailand, I am in desperate need of this as I say I cannot get out of bed etc etc without it, this item was due to be delivered today ( 10 April 2019) here in Thailand in just a few hours and I am at a loss to understand something? a message was sent to the sender ( my Niece in UK, Rebecca Harrison) last night at 10:17pm telling us about hazardous material, surely this was never going to be here on time - as promised - by today, surely this should have been noticed before when collected, although my niece was asked about being a lithium rechargeable battery which it is and should be ok? I am in desperate need of this item and very very anxious now I have heard this as I was expecting to be able to get out of bed with more ease today? tracking number 1ZT0G78ZD920004819 I am wondering what I can do as we paid for express delivery and was told all was ok then the battery thing came up, sounds like an excuse to me for something, either way it is not going to be here today as promised and paid for? UPDATE; now 11th April and still its in UK although the battery issue was resolved and we were told as I am disabled it would be given urgent attention but still its in UK and the sender has not been told why? It occurred on: 8/04/2019 This meant that I am disabled with a muscle wasting disease and bedridden, I need the patient hoist to get from my bed to my wheelchair and commode and back to bed etc, no one knows the frustration of this who has not experienced it? Get it here........... I look forward to your prompt response on this matter. As recommended by Trading Standards, I would like to keep a complete record of my case, so please reply back via this email account.

A lot of this video isn’t right. You can’t compare a priority flat rate box to a regular flat rate box. Flat rate is one charge up to 70 pounds. Regular priority is charged per pound and/or location. Good energy explaining though!

Note: the large box example mentions the word Regional on the bigger one, so that one is likely limited in distance compared to the other. So if your sending to more remote destination (ie:Hawaii, Alsaka), might not be advised.

Good video, but you should correct yourself on the large flat rate vs the large regional rate box. Not the same! Regional prices are based on zones 1 - 9. with different weight limits. I find the "National Zone Charts Matrix" very confusing. You are not able to list an estimated a price if buyer's destination is not known.

FedEx belongs is prison....worthless criminal enterprise
petedogg369 (3 months ago)
None of those boxes are a deal. I'll teach you how to save.. Here it goes.. If you sell on Ebay order regional rate boxes from the post office, totally free to have them sent to you. Not many people even know they exist. When you go to print your label choose the regional rate box from the package list, either A or B depending on which you had to use. You will see it's usually way cheaper.

A box that often gets overlooked is the USPS board game box. It’s about the width of the rectangular medium flat rate, but almost twice as long. I believe the cost is about $18 to send. If you sell wholesale clothing lots on sites like eBay, you can stuff about 20 pieces inside. Works great for quilts and blankets too.

For her birthday on Jan. 27, I mailed w/USPS my adult niece a pearl necklace on Jan.11 from Charlotte, NC to Cary, NC, with estimated delivery of Mon, Jan.14.... it was never delivered and no one knows where it is. It was in a 7 x 9 package. Unbelievably disgusting, and I can’t replace it It is a one-of-a-kind piece. I don’t know why there so much incompetence and /or thievery.

You give great info 80% of the time but 2:39??? It goes by weight the more powerbanks you put in you'll be paying quadruple what you'd pay with that small box you're acting like it's the same thing it doesn't go by volume it goes by weight!!!!✌️

You can ship that power bank first class for around $3.50
jsnowbrien (2 months ago)
I've actually sent several full size men's tennis rackets via first class just bubble wrap and slap a thermal label on it it's not the prettiest shipping but I've never had any problems or damage
jsnowbrien (2 months ago)
+B. Walker yeah man 16 oz is first class on ebay plus it's way cheaper than over-the-counter rates even cheaper than online rates I get up to 33% discount compared to over the counter but you are correct it's 13 Oz maximum for over-the-counter
B. Walker (2 months ago)
+jsnowbrien say that again? You mean when you print postage on EBAY you GET 16 ounces in first class? There is no counter in my city that permits first class over 13 ounces. Will you explain further? I am giddy at the possibility of your revelation!
jsnowbrien (2 months ago)
+B. Walker I think a big majority of your viewers are new eBay sellers so first class is up to 16 oz on ebay. you be surprised how much you can save shipping first class if you're able to use bubble wrap and polybag instead of cardboard that saves a lot of weight as well

My apt complex does not receive packages. They want us each to sign up with a package receiving company who has lockers in our mail room. USPS, UPS, FEDEX. etc delivers the package only to their locker,s I receive an email, and if I don't pick it up in three days. they will start charging me $3.00/day. They want me to register my credit card with them, so they can charge whenever they want. I am told USPS, UPS and FEDEX will only deliver to this company's lockers. I have a problem with their "privacy policy," too. It seems as if they will share quite a bit of my personal info with other entities over whom they have "no control." I feel like I'm being blackmailed or strong-armed.

Never ship FedEx. You never know if their plane will crash leaving your package on an island with the only survivor from the plane.
OCP (5 months ago)
I wouldn't really call these secrets, or things that are not really widely known. I thought you were going to talk about things like over-stuffing the package. For example if your item can sort of fit inside the package but it's bulging slightly you don't have to go to the next size up. As long as all the tabs can go into their places and you don't have to have an excessive amount of tape to hold it together it's fine.

onjoFilms (5 months ago)
Nice tips. Here's another one, at least in my case. It is more expensive to ship UPS through your account, then just out of your account. Online with a CC instead of having an account. I don't know why. I spoke to 7 different people at UPS and NO ONE could tell me why.

No more Flat Rate "C".  The "A" and "B" are a cheap alternative to Medium Flat Rate if you are sending to a nearby zone, like 1 to maybe 4, but you have to limit "A" to 15 lbs and "B" is 20 lbs.  Also, no Post office has the regionals, order them free online  You have to print postage online, they cannot rate them at the counter!

You fail to mention with the small boxes is that one of those is a flat rate and the other isn't! So depending on weight they are not the same cost?
