    for the sellers on this forum, how do you guys usually ship the packages?
    Via priority or overnight?

    UPS is good if u r selling on ****
    because the tracking number actually works
    and UPS is automatically insured $100

    USPS tracking number doesnt work, even if u do it from paypal ... **** and paypal wont even be on ur side because the tracking number is unrecognizable

    USPS is not tracking ,it's just delivery confirmation.

    I just priority mail USPS with DC. Don't overnight,that's way expensive.

    Exactly. It's just there so the seller and buyer knows whether or not it made it to the destination. DC was never tracking, nor was it designed to be.

    I use USPS Priority, the shipping materials (boxes, stickers, tape, etc) are free, and two of their rectangular boxes stuck together are perfect for shipping racquets. The cost is around $4-7, and takes 2-3 days. Overnight shipping usually starts at around $20 and up, and often gets there 2 business days after you ship it, if you ship it too late in the day.

    Priority is an excellent service, and hasnt let me down.
