  • Great video but I would like to add that USPS also has a Rate Box "A" and "B" that you can use that up to a certain weight (I believe right around 8 lb's), depending on the shipping zone, that the shipping cost is less than the flat rate boxes. Depending on the box that you use, you can ship multiple jars in your shipment and save money. In addition, the majority of the USPS boxes are free, which will obviously save you money.

  • What if your candles are not in a vessel/container? Like a sculpture molded candle. Worried about it melting and losing shape

  • When entering the weight of the item, do we include the box? Like package everything in the box then weigh it on the scale?

  • Thank you so much for this video as I am starting my own candle shop has no everyone is at home I might as well give some thing that can last a while, your video is amazing and I have a question regarding the quick priority shipping:
    are you able to print out the labels from home instead of going to the post office? as this will be easier
    again thank you so much!

    How do you know when they buy,what to charge?
    Is there a chart?

  • How do you make sure your candles don’t melt during the summer when shipping?….like if you are shipping to Vegas when the temperature is 110 degrees?

    Posted July 11, 2020
  • Love this video, truly helped me not have a complete breakdown.😭🤣
    I was wondering if you could give me a little advice? We are currently only doing wax melts. I plan to use bubble mailers for most orders. Probably 3-4 items. But if someone was to order more, what general size box would you recommend?

  • I love the idea of the usps cubic shipping! Can they be shipped in any boxes? Or do they have to be shipped in those brown U-line boxes? I found some great white cardboard boxes that I love!

  • Wow, this is amazing! Thank you so much for helping. I love that you got excited about boxes. 🙂

    Question for you: Do you have a video on how you package these for summer months? Also, does priority cubic still ship in 1-3 days?

  • I am in the process of starting making/selling mugs and I just about cried when I saw the shipping rates! This is so amazing! Thank you so much! Is there a way to set it up so Etsy knows how to charge for shipping for 4 as opposed to 1 using this method…? Thank you so much for sharing the secret!! 😭😭
