Packing and Shipping is one thing which most of the new sellers struggle with, and when you go to a private courier partner and talk to them they ask for hefty feeswh
ich kill your margins and even take you into losses, and same is with the packing, initially you don’t know how to pack items and send them. In this post, I will show you how to find Packing and Shipping Solution for eCommerce and never worry about this part of your business.
For packing you can take couple of approaches, one is to find a packaging manufacturer in your city from Google, Justdial, Indiamart or TradeIndia and get packing material from them at cheaper rates possible, I buy mine from Sadar Bazar, New Delhi. The other way is to order it online from special online websites meant for this like Packingsupply, Arihantpackaging, Smmartpkg, Ecompackaging etc, you can also find some options on eBay, Amazon, Flipkart etc. but compare prices before you make any decision and make a good choice as packing material will be a bit expensive on the known websites. Now let’s talk about Shipping and find a solution for that too.
Now Again as was the case above, here also we have multiple options to try. One is to contact local courier partners and negotiate with them for good pricing and after ship support. I have tried this and found DTDC and professional courier partners good with their pricing and support. The other way is to find online solution and there are quite a few good options here too. I use Vamaship.com to place my orders online and also help my paid members by placing there orders from here, the other two websites which I know are Shiprocket and eCourierz, One of my member use Shiprocket and he likes it and eCourierz uses FedEx which provides fast delivery, So try them out and choose one which suits you.
