I also already do use the Tyvek USPS bags if I am shipping, say, a sweater that is too big for a padded mailer so it goes Region Rate A. I'm looking for something bigger for sport coats, suits and outerwear (winter coats)...I don't want to try and cram them into the Tyvek mailer - most simply will not fit. I appreciate your replies and suggestions but I know what I am looking for and what I wish to use it for...just need a good source, which was the original question. I'm willing to pay the extra 10 or 15 cents or whatnot when bought in bulk, for larger plastic bags I can use for larger items.
I like this idea...unless I were to get hit with a lost/damaged item right out of the gate and I was self-insuring...though I suppose it would be made up eventually since it hasn't happened to me in years, and I'd eventually be back in the black.
How much of a difference will Top Rated Plus make on my sales? I'm about to hit it, and I typically sell 2 buy it nows and 2-5 auctions a week. I regularly post 50ish or so a month, starting to ramp it up. I have this expectation to hit Search Result Nirvana once I get my TRSP but I'm not actually sure what to expect.
I'm Power Seller and Top Rated Plus, and my items are typically featured near the top of the heap when initially searching ("best match"), and I've seen my stuff top of page 1 in Google shopping search results...which does not necessarily translate to markedly higher sales, since you still have to have a good product at a good price. eBay makes comparison shopping a snap on their site, so useful keywords, filling in all the info boxes/options, good pictures and description/measurements, and a competitive price will make the sale. I'm only happy to be Top Rated for the final value fee discounts; don't think it has much, if any, effect on my own sales. I sell more than I used to, for higher dollar amounts, but I also list more items that are higher-priced than I used to.
