Where can I get a brown box
PiFF LEGARDE (1 year ago)
What about shipping costs? I know tracked shipping is the only way to go, but what do you think is the fairest way to go about that is? Should you ever ship untracked if the customer requests? Should Canadian shippers convert their Canadian shipping price to USD? Do prices of shipping change very much depending on size of shoe??
kieyanab (1 year ago)
With USPS, if you use their flat rate service, you get tracking and insurance (up to $50) for free. I think the conversion would depend on the seller and how they conduct their business, so I say to ask them if they accept CAD or if they are USD only. Shipping is done by weight, unless you choose the USPS flat rate method, then it is by box. With USPS, if you can fit the item(s) without altering the box, then you can ship it for a flat rate. (The flat rate is determined by what box/envelope you used.) If I'm wrong let me know, because this is my understanding of shipping.

What would you suggest if I don't have the original box to do a double box?
Colza Boss (1 year ago)
+Timothy Cotton you can by boxes off eBay or just us random boxes from like your parents or something like a new balance box just write the name of the shoe and stuff

Who is like Dark Kent? (3 years ago)
Also put clear tape over the mailing label. If it rains or that label gets wet while your package is in transit and the address isn't legible, They will chuck that as a lost package with the quickness. The only one taking the hit is the shipper, so don't be cheap with the tape y'all.

nice informative video
Jenny G (3 years ago)
Although it's just all common sense, this is a must needed vid on the real! I have been a victim of one too many stupid ass sellers out there. Big ups on this. And I think one of my kicks were delivered by Ace cause my shit turned out just like that broke ass box. LOL!
Chris Page (3 years ago)
I bought a pair of kicks I knew came without a box, I was like ok fair enough a replacement box will have to do. They showed up in a plastic bag...not a fuckin box in sight. Guys, PLEASE dont ship kicks in a plasitc grocery bag....that should go without saying.
joe Black (3 years ago)
Glad you made this vid. I think all the stuff mentioned would be common sense but of course there are still some don't knows out there. Btw... Go Dubs!

"El Jefe" (3 years ago)
I definitely got kicks with a german shepherd inside of my insoles, I was pissed. I hate dealing with kids on ebay, they are the most unprofessional clowns to do business with.
Mike Price (3 years ago)
Adidas.com should take notes from this vid. lol I ordered two pairs of shoes from them [@ different times], & both were delivered in huge ass boxes with nothing holding them still. Both pairs had come out of the shoe boxes, & the shoe boxes were beat to shit.
GDKakarot (3 years ago)
Man my shoes weren't even double boxed AND THE SHOE BOX WASENT EVEN TAPED THO i bought a pair of gamma 11s on ebay and the box had no tape no nothing and when i felt the box the shoes weren't even in the box anymore someone jacked them and took my gammas so i paid 180 for a gamma 11 box WITHOUT THE PLASTIC SHEET
AA1891 (3 years ago)
Slab of silly putty lol.

everyone knows I think, just some people dont care sadly
Nicholas Christian (3 years ago)
anything else would be uncivilized, my post office doesn't let me cut down boxes and re-shape em but dope vid nonetheless
Andrae Cottner (3 years ago)
I agree with you. Shipping etiquette is a MUST! I don't buy preowned but when I sale em I wanna make sure my buyers are just as excited to see the shoes in person as they were when they copped off eBay.
Brendan Murphy (3 years ago)
Awesome video foamie
ortiz4uz (3 years ago)
Great vid my man. I am just a neat person to begin with. Cleanliness is next to godliness in my mind but unfortunately 3/4 of the masses are not like this and I've ran into this problem with DS shoes not worn or what have you. Struck a deal with a dude for the fighter jet foams on eBay and when I got them they were DS but they smelled like an ash tray and had a finger print on them made out of what I hope was chocolate...lol! I think some of these youngsters needed to see your vid.

rossj337 (3 years ago)
Good shit with this video. I knew I couldn't be the only one to bust out the lint roller for the insoles before selling
bullettprewf (3 years ago)
Thanks for this.  Iif you've reached even one lackadaisical soul, then you've helped us all.  Unfortunately common sense just isn't common anymore.
Michael Hawkins (3 years ago)
Nice vid, yeah on eBay I bought a pair of lebron 9 big bangs and when I got them, it was not double boxed and there was packaging tape and shipping stickers and such all over the box. I would think that this raises the probability of the shoes to get stolen because they have all of the info on the box of what's inside, it really isn't hard to double box, I don't see why people don't do it. Great vid as always

Tape the shoe box, man I wish someone would 😂😭👋 that made me cringe.
Osvaldo Martinez (3 years ago)
Word. My brother bought a pair of Wolf Grey 5s from Ebay before and the seller didn't even double box them. The box looked horrible after all the tape was taken off. You couldn't even see the size tag anymore.

Nice id foamer, glad you showing these foolz the biz. By the way everyone come check out my vids I got a nice air max review on there
Mitchy Mitch (3 years ago)
Foamsss what do you do man? I just can't picture a job that would fit you except like a sneaker boutique or something to do with sneakers. What do you do that fuels all these sneaker purchases and everything else? It can't just be YouTube
Andrew K (3 years ago)
eBay is booty flakes anyway, we can only hope that anyone who sees this video uses it for a reference the next time they ship.  
Patrick Cassidy (3 years ago)
GREAT VIDEO FOAM. Very educational and important video.
InZaneKicks (3 years ago)
These are pure fundamentals but it is still mind boggling the ratio of people that lack the professional courtesy to do it properly.I can vouch that Foamer definitely practices what he preaches.
That1GL (3 years ago)
ON GOD GONNA SEND THIS TO ALL THE SELLERS ON EBAY THAT DONT GET THE MESSAGE!
ah57571 (3 years ago)
I don't even understand why this needs to be said in the first place. I got dumb sellers a few times, sending shoes not double boxed so I have tape all over the box, sending dirty ass shoes and one pair of shoes reeked of cigarettes.
thefan33 (3 years ago)
#3 cutting down that box like that. MIND BLOWN. When I ship boxes i just stuff em, but sometimes its still a little too big. NICE. GREAT VID FOAMER! 
Steve Nodd (3 years ago)
Cutting down the box will save you a ton in shipping costs. I do it all the time, and you save money on packing supplies. 
Brian Fortiz (3 years ago)
Did you actually get that box in that condition?
James A.S (3 years ago)
glad u made this video cause I don't know to ship shoes until now thanks!
bcyph80 (3 years ago)
This should be mandatory viewing before you can even setup an eBay account to sell.
melokid99 (3 years ago)
how to ship the right way!
jbright407 (3 years ago)
I think watching this video should be mandatory for any seller on eBay. I recently brought a pair of black cat 4s that were ruined because they weren't shipped correctly. Big props homie, big props. 
Hank Trill (3 years ago)
Do a vid on annoying ass buyers next. Fucking shit some of yall have a bag of hammers for a brain.
Hank Trill (3 years ago)
+Kay gotsole I always get "is it authentic?" what if I just straight up lie, or send them a pic of a real shoe and give them a fake? Or as soon as they buy something they're crying about the tracking not updating every 5 minutes.
NAaaVspace (3 years ago)
mac daddy hank hill lol
Kay gotsole (3 years ago)
Hell yeah. Constantly hitting me up in the messages just to not go through with what we agreed on. I would strangle some of these mofos if I ever saw them in person.
MrDannii83 (3 years ago)
One last and very important thing as well when sending a package please send the package with proof of receipt, that mean that someone as to sign for the package when it's being delivered it will help avoid any fraud claims and from those dame dishonest mailmen stealing there stuff.
MR FOAMER SIMPSON (3 years ago)
Very true.

STreeTTaTe (3 years ago)
Only thing you forgot was ship PRIORITY. Nobody wanna wait 2 weeks for some kicks. 2-3 days should be standard.
Kay gotsole (3 years ago)
+NAaaVspace Exactly. We, as the smaller sellers I would think, ship out faster than the franchise sneaker companies. Finishline has shipped a package of mine in 3 hours, after ordering, and they have been better overall in comparison to the other companies, but none of them have anything on me when I'm selling myself.
NAaaVspace (3 years ago)
+Kay gotsole yea agree, buyer pays for priority. Priority isn't cheap for 3 pound package unless you live within the states near you.. and packages come 2-6 days usually. Not to bad of a wait, same wait for eastbay, finishline etc.
Kay gotsole (3 years ago)
The buyer should be ready to pay priority then, and 2 weeks (lets use usps for ex), is a complete exaggeration.
DreCorleone3179 (3 years ago)
yes lawd...great video!
