Get Free Shipping Supplies from Your Shipping Vendors – How To Ship Smarter As A Small Business Part 3
Get Free Shipping Supplies from your Shipping Vendors
Nothing in life is free… except when it comes to free shipping supplies from your shipping vendors.
If you didn’t know already, your shipping vendors (e.g. UPS, FedEx and USPS) are all vying to get as much of your shipping business as possible. So they’ve taken a cue from the pharmaceutical reps’ handbook and will be happy to give you useful complimentary shipping supplies to earn your business.
If you’re not taking advantage of these free shipping supplies, then you’re missing out.
Our third tip in the Ship Smarter series is this: take advantage of the freebies!
So How Do I Get Freebies?
As long as you have an account set up with UPS or FedEx, along with your account ID all you need is a valid shipping address. You simply have to login to your account(s), go to the order shipping supplies page and select your free stuff. Bada bing, bada boom. Just like that.
You can score everything from barcode scanners to label printers to branded boxes and more depending on the size of your account. Of course, if you are able to grab a free label printer, you should buy your labels on LabelValue.com since we let you know about the deal. I mean it’s only the nice thing to do. Click here to buy labels.
Oh and if you have a valid shipping address, USPS has free supplies as well (and they’re even holiday themed, as of this writing!) just click here to get them.
If you took our advice in post #1 to heart and met with your reps, you should make sure to contact them to find out what other freebies you may be entitled to. Especially if you are steadily increasing your shipments as your business grows, you’ll want to stay on top of everything you’ve earned, along with volume rate discounts.
Stay tuned for tip #4 next Wednesday and make sure to keep on shipping smarter!
