I’m new here so these questions are coming from a novice.
1. Does Boardsort send prepaid labels ? I’d like the cheaper rate vs USPS.
2. If yes then what’s the process?

Thanks

I never asked directly: but my guess is they’re using a bulk rate plan.

Yes, they email you the labels you use to ship the boxes.
They deduct the shipping fee from the final payout.

I’ve pointed out before:
The absolute best rates you will ever get in this country for shipping more than 5Lbs to a single destination is to find your way into the Fedex commercial shipping program.
And the easiest way to do that is by patiently waiting for an ebay opening as an ebay seller.

That aside:
A quick demo look at the various UPS 3rd party label programs still put it below the USPS commercial cost.

My fedex rates are lower than the prepaid service from boardsort so I have minimal reason to try it. But for most people it should work out to your advantage.

Thanks again!

I emailed Chris and asked for a prepaid label w/ weight and LxWxH at the first of the week. I have probably have done something wrong. Haven’t heard back.

I tried looking into this and google only talks about the Global Ebay Shipping Program.

I want to look further. I have been selling there for 20 years and never saw a hint of this.

Prerec.
You need a fedex account.
You need an ebay account

try this direct link
Log into your fedex account and follow the instructions.

Caveats
This only work(es/ed) when enrolment is open.
The last tiMe I heard someone got in was last year: 2020
I can’t test if the link works because I already have a commercial account.
