I recently decided to list a couple books on Amazon’s marketplace, to see if I could get a few bucks for some books I was going to throw out. What I’m trying to figure out is where to get the cheapest (yet effective) packing materials. That $3.99 really doesn’t go far if you’re buying individual jiffy pack envelopes at Staples.
I know there are a couple Dopers who sell a lot on Amazon, so what advice can you give me on packaging? Any other random advice about being an Amazon seller? I’ve listed all my books at a couple dollars cheaper than the cheapest, since I don’t have any feedback yet and would like to get the books out of my house already.
Am I right in assuming that I’m going to have to declare this on my income tax return, too? Any information would be much appreciated!
