Chapter 14. Managing Packing and Shippin... > Streamlining the Packing and Shippin...

Streamlining the Packing and Shipping Process

One of the most important things you can do to make your eBay business more efficient is to streamline the entire process of packing and shipping your merchandise.

Read on to learn how to be a more efficient shipper.

Then they hop in the car and drive as fast as possible to the post office, stand in line, and ship the thing out.
