I ship almost everything first class and things arrive in about a week after shipping. It means;
I have to go to the post office every day and get everything weighed.
I don't get any tracking
It takes 3 to 7 days instead of 2 to 3 for priority.
I save my customers a couple dollars.
I reduce my packaging to just what is needed.
One of the challenges is my merchandise is small and relatively inexpensive. Who would want to pay $5 to have a pair of tarp flyz sent..maybe some.
It would be great to get some feedback from you as to what is imprtant. I now ship for about $1.75 to $3 and it would likely go up to $5 for priority.
