What is the cheapest way to ship something?

  1. FedEx Ground or UPS Ground will almost always be cheaper than USPS Priority Mail.
  2. USPS will always be cheaper than FedEx or UPS hands down.
  3. USPS really shines when your package weighs less than 13 oz and can be mailed via First Class mail.
  4. USPS Express is once again the cheapest solution by far and it is guaranteed.

Can I use a flat rate box for poshmark?

(If you think your package is over 5 lbs, you can get a label upgrade directly through the app.) Poshmark orders ship via USPS Priority Mail. Do NOT use USPS “Priority Flat Rate,” “Regional Rate,”or “Express Mail” boxes. You can also use a regular brown box to ship your items.

Can you use any type of box to ship UPS?

You can use your own box or UPS packaging supplies. UPS online shipping can help you complete your label. Make sure to place the label on top of the package and remove any old labels or cross out old markings. Secure the label and avoid placing it on box seams or tape.
