    The Unites States Postal Service is definitely the most cost efficient.
    However UPS is pretty reliable and nice to use as well but more
    expensive.

    UPS and USPs will cost you low,try to put shipping based on user requirement but what ever it is ,if is priority then charge extra money from them

    Just make sure you get tracking, never take the cheap rought and send without tracking. If they person claims they did not receive it your out of luck.

    Ok thx by the way does Free Shipping bumps my listings to the top? I can't really ship free because these items are priced really low because I have an eBay competitor selling the same items and I can't price my items higher than them
    And they offer free shipping on +$100 orders and I can't do that
    My items ship in pretty large packages as it is furniture but at the same time their prices are too low for me to be able to offer free shipping
    What should I do?

    Both. It depends on the dimensions. Paypal has both and makes it easy to check prices. For bulkier heavier items UPS is definitely the way too go.

    USPS is the only way for light stuff.

    Yeah I agree. If the products you are selling are heavy then you
    will have to go with UPS. The USPS is only good for light packages ect...

    FedEx and DHL are good to.
