For each item you list on Tradesy, you'll pre select one of three convenient shipping methods: receive a Shipping Kit in the mail, print a label directly from your Tradesy account, or handle shipping on your own. You choose shipping before you make the sale, because the cost of your chosen shipping method is added to the item's price: the buyer pays both your listing price and shipping at checkout. Then when your item sells, you'll ship directly to the buyer. The order will begin automatically updating on Tradesy once the shipping carrier scans the package - so both you and the buyer can track its progress online.
Choose shipping before you publish your item
When you create your listing, you'll review your three options in the Shipping section and choose which method works best for you:
- Tradesy Shipping Kit
- Printable prepaid shipping label
- Ship on your own
Note: All three shipping options are available for every listing, except for items in the Weddings category. Sellers must ship Wedding items on their own.
Tradesy Shipping Kit
Ship without ever leaving home. We send everything you need to get the item to the buyer, including a polybag or box, tissue paper, and a prepaid USPS Priority Mail label with insurance and tracking already included.
Printable prepaid shipping label
Print a shipping label directly from your Tradesy account when your item sells. You have a choice between carriers when printing your label: FedEx or USPS. Both prepaid labels come with insurance and tracking already included.
Ship on your own
Use your own packaging, shipping label, and tracking number. In the listing, we'll provide a shipping calculator and space for you to add in your estimated out-of-pocket cost, so the buyer price includes both the item and your shipping expense.
When your item sells
Tradesy will alert you about all sale updates and new messages, so make sure you've provided a valid email address you regularly check or your phone number to receive texts, so you don't miss a thing.
When your item sells, you'll find your next steps for shipping on your Sales page, based on which shipping option you pre selected when you created the listing. You'll ship directly to the buyer - and the faster you ship, the faster you're paid!
