    I need to not spend like 3 4 dollars on each usps small box protect mail. I am going to ship like 100 a month for now and my profit on each item is like 6 7 dollars. What can I do, change the shipping to cheaper? I would like to keep usps priority. I will call them tomorrow.
    Many guidence or advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Speak to them and see if you can order shipping labels in bulk or something to reduce cost. Otherwise you need to find a differnet provider, simple.

    USPS offers slightly discounted prices if you purchase postage online.

    But typically USPS is best option for light / small packages, I don't think 1st class mail postage can be beat =)

    If you're saying that boxes themselves are costing you too much, you can 'order' priority boxes from the usps site for free. You could then wrap them in the brown package wrapping paper if you use parcel select for shipping some of them. Which, as mentioned above, you get a discount when printing priority labels online, and, if the destination you're shipping to isn't on the other side of the country, and the package is just a few pounds or less, priority will be cheaper than parcel select after the discount.
