Why Would You Pay 10X More to Ship a Package?

In this video you will see a real life example of a package that I received where the cost of shipping was at least 10 times more! As a customer that was charged $7.95 for shipping something that could have been shipped with via USPS First Class Mail for $.61, I was unhappy. Not only did it cost more, it took twice as long to get to me from California–4 days instead of 2. And, on top of that, it was more costly to the environment. It cost more to ship, cost more packaging, and contained plastic filler.

I don’t work for the Post Office or get a commission. I just hate it when I see waste.

    Good points!!! As a regular shipper on ebay etc, i am discovering more and more each day the importance of looking for shipping alternatives and not taking “the road most traveled!”
