Accutek ShipPro Shipping Scale
If you sell a lot of clothes or small items, you should consider using poly mailers. They are durable bags that will help you to keep your shipping down.
You’ll also need some boxes depending on what type of items you sell. You can get some boxes from USPS for free. They may not have the side that you need. You can check with places like Office Depot or Walmart to see if they have different sizes.
If you ship any fragile items, you want to make sure they make them to their destination in one piece. Bubble wrapping the items will help to make sure that happens.
The more items that you sell, the more tape you will use. You want to make sure that you have enough stocked up.
One of the best things I did for my business was purchasing a printer. There are hundreds of different ones out there. I have one similar to the one that you see above.

I wrote a step-by-step guide that will help you get started. You can find it here.
GoDaddy is one of the best places to locate and purchase a domain name. They are advertised as the world’s largest domain name website. I purchased a domain for another website I had a couple of years ago for under $5. That’s a heck of a price. Head over here to see what domain deals are eligible.
