Someone has bought quite a lrge toy from me which which I said I would post, I was'nt sure where I would find such a large box so I have put the toy inside a Pampers nappy box, padded around toy with a lot of carrier bags and then covered box witha bin bag and masking taped it all up.
Would you be pissed off about this? It looks a bit shawdy and I can't help but think it looks a bit half done although I do state in all my listings that I do reuse old packaging to keep costs down etc.
Buyer bought through the night with BIN so emailed her this morning to say it won't be posted until Wednesday as I could'nt get out for materials until tomorrow but as I have improvised I will be able to post a day earlier so I would imagine that should make up for crap packaging
I would be happy with the pampers box - don't think that's crap at all. I wouldn't mind the bin bag as long as it was secure and wouldn't tear/the address come off etc. Personally, I don't see the need to cover the fact that it is a pampers box - could you just not tape it up and stick the address on?
I recyle all my packaging to keep costs down. What I do when a pzckage looks shoddy is either use a carrier bag turned inside out or a binliner for the outer wrapping as it adds no weight to the package. This makes it look neat at least for the buyer.
