What do you Think?

Well, for about the third time, I have revisited my packaging. A comment made by a fellow DUST team member (Down Under Street Team on Etsy) noting that she kept her packaging flat allowing her to post her items in the large letter category, keeping costs down as the Australia Parcel costs are ridiculous in reality for what you get.

So this time my aim was to find a way to package lightweight items in a more streamlined way, removing the boxes and replacing them so that I can offer free postage on all lightweight items every day, not just an occasional special.

All items will now be wrapped in tissue paper, placed in a decorated cardboard envelope, protected by bubble wrap and posted in an envelope.

The best part is the it will be completely FREE to all Australian customers and only a small fee charged to international customers.

So for the next month we are trialling our new packaging system with the aim of making it permanent. But first, I want to be sure that this is what the customers would want. To help us decide on implementing this idea permanently, we would love your opinion in our survey. Would you prefer FREE postage with minimal packaging or would you rather pay the extra and have the item packaged in a traditional heavier packaging.

    I’d probably go for a small jiffy bag rather than bubble wrap and plain envelope. They’re a lot stronger for the same amount of space, if you know what I mean.
