send off for the freebie gifts posted on this site and when they arrive be really careful when you open the envelope/jiffy then use it again ;-)

Can't tell you where to get free ones but poundland do envelopes, inc jiffy bags very cheap er....£1!!! lol
small padded envelopes are 10 for £1, and even A4 size you get 4 for £1

yeh, im not a high volume seller, every penny counts!

wilkinsons are cheap for jiffy bags too, 4 jiffy bags (ideal for xbox games etc) 79p and the a4 ones are 99 p i think,,,

If you want free non-padded postal bags, then ask for some Special Delivery Bags from your Post Office (they do 3 different sizes: C3, C4 & C5).

Just take them home, turn them inside out, et voila.

I used to take the Special Delivery Bags from Post Office and do that, but then they stopped leaving them on the shelf for some reason, plus i heard that they are now charging for the bags now, is this true?

Thanks for the info, i've not tried asking anyone at the post office as they where always just sitting there for people to help them self's, but i will ask tomorrow for some, all i use for ebay is the large and medium bags as it saves a lot of money on them as ebay and the high fees are bad enough.

If i phone them up and ask for the ones i need would they let me have say 10 to 20 of each of the large and medium bags and do they send them out free of charge? Thanks again

To be honest I don't know, but I would imagine they would allow you to have that many. If anything, it might be you need to order more where it is supposed to be for business customers, but if that's the case, just order more and stick the spare ones on the shelf in the PO. ;-)

As far as I can telll from what the guy said in his post, it will all be free apart from the phone call, so I take that to mean delivery as well.
