Packaging Tips to Increase Buyer Satisfaction
Buyers expect to receive their orders on time, in excellent condition.
To help protect your items and provide a world-class buying experience, follow these packaging tips when packing orders for shipment.
If you’re not using Fulfillment by Amazon and ship your items yourself, make sure to package your items in strong, corrugated cardboard boxes. Check the bottom of the box for a weight limit. Don’t wrap the outer box in any kind of paper, as it could tear off and your shipment could be lost in transit or delayed.
Invest in packing peanuts and bubble cushioning, especially if you’re sending anything fragile. Leave enough space between items in the box, and wrap individual items with double cushioning if necessary.
Ship expensive jewelry and other valuables in a box no smaller than 7-by-4-by-2 inches. Make sure to use a signature confirmation service to confirm receipt. No seller wants to hear their high-dollar item “never arrived.” Also, don’t attach anything to the outside of the box that could reveal the item’s value.
