How to save money shipping eBay and Amazon orders: Thermal Printers

As your eBay business grows you are going to want to save time and money any way you can. One great way to do this is to change your shipping practices. No more writing out labels by hand, or cutting out "labels" from your ink jet printer. Now it is time to get serious!

In order to save money shipping your products from eBay, Amazon, or any home business you have, you need to use a thermal printer!

You need to realize that the ink, paper, tape, and time spent affixing "labels" to your package really adds up. If you are tired of spending money on these items, it is time to consider purchasing a thermal printer. They burn the shipping information onto your label so you don't have to buy ink. You can get the labels for free from UPS and FedEx, and all you have to do is peel it of and slap it on your package.

It could not look more professional.

So, that is quite the sales pitch I just gave you. I just want you to know that I don't actually even sell these. But here is another niche for you, if you know where to find them for cheap! Selling products to eBay sellers is always a good way to go!

Anyway, a good label printer that I recommend is the Zebra Eltron LP 2543. They are as cheap as buying two ink jet cartridges (less than $50), and will last forever. Also, they work with Paypal or Encidia no problem.

Go buy one of these right now, you will be glad that you did!
