I have a hard non bendable item (think ink pen) that weighs less than an ounce. Whether I purchase the postage through ebay/paypal/stamps.com/USPS in person counter – First Class is a little over $3.xx and they're talking about raising prices again.
However, I know options exist to ship at a lower price. I've received watch bands and other items in bubble mailers, originating inside the US, where the postage is slightly over $1.
I've tried googling and come across stamps.com type competitors but everyone seems to have basically the same commercial pricing as ebay/paypal.. any tips?
