How To Pack Mobile Tempered Glass For Safe Shipping 

Hey guys i am back again after a very long time, i was really busy and my internet wasn't even trying to work properly . Lets get back to the topic . 
It's been more than two months i have started my own journey as a seller on ebay to earn some pocket money .I always have an interest in the mobile technology niche. But to sell the mobile phones there's a need of big investment so i started with the mobile accessories because it doesn't require a very big investment . So 2 months ago i had no clue on how to pack mobile accessories so that they gets delivered to the customer safely . At that time i used to think bubble wrap is the best solution to pack the product and less expensive also but when customers received the product it wasn't the same before shipping . Let me show you a picture .

Though it is looking cool but it is of no use to the customer . These type of cases frustrates your buyer and there is an chance of 80 % that customer will not shop from your website or store . Lets discuss about the bad things which can happen with you .

Where does the bad packaging leads to :

  • Chances that customer will not buy from you again in future .
  • We all know an dis-satisfied customer is going to take 10 from your store.
  • It is going to affect your brand .
  • If you are on ebay then a negative feedback can really affect your ratings .
  • If you'll continue with the bad packaging which will lead you to get your account restricted or suspended on the marketplaces .
  • if Customers receives a broken product then you might have to send the item again which will lead to more expense and less profit .
After reading these points i am sure that you are going to pack your products safe . Today i am going to share some tips to make sure that the products gets delivered safe and the packaging looks good 
also .

How To Pack Mobile Tempered Glass : 

Step 1: The very first step is deciding that what box you are going to use whether a box made of plastic or thick paper . I use the thick paper box because sometimes i sell a set of 2 tempered glass . 

Which box is more safe ?

Of course the plastic box is more safer than the paper box . At the end its your decision what you have to use .Make sure that the boxes you are going to use are not broken from anywhere or have scratches .

Step 2:  The next step is to put the tempered glass in the box . If you are using the plastic box then you don't have to wrap the tempered glass in the bubble wrap then put it in the  box . But if you are using the thick paper box don't even think of putting the tempered glass in the box without bubble wrap . There's image below which will help you to understand more .

Make sure that the tempered glass is properly wrapped so that it will not slide from the bubble wrap .
Now once the tempered glass is in the box now you have to wrap the box also to make it more safe .

Note :- Don't use the low quality bubble wrap because it is not the strong . Use a high quality bubble wrap .

Step 3: Now the box of tempered glass is packed but still it is not safe . To make it more safe to ship you need an outer packaging which is more strong and reliable . There are two types of outer packaging which can use for the tempered glasses :-

1. Corrugate box
2. Thermocol Box
 

I am using the high density thermocol boxes right now . If you are going to get the thermocol box just tell manufacture that you want  high density thermocol boxes because they are more safe . The cost of single box would be around ₹7-₹15 . If you'll order boxes in bulk like 1000-1200 boxes then rate might get down . I am using the thermocol boxes because if i want to pack the flip covers also then i can do that which is a bit difficult in the case of corrugate boxes . To me it's a bit difficult .Check the images below so that you can get an idea . You can tell the manufacturer about the size and the thickness and quality to the manufacturer and they will make them for you . The box cost may vary .

This the box which i have . You can get different boxes also . 

The another reason of using these boxes is that the packaging is not only about safe its about the way it looks also . If the packaging looks good to customer and safe also then he is going to buy from you frequently .

Step 4 : This is the last step which you have to do putting the box in the tampered proof bag . I have used 8 X 10 inch bag as it is the best size for tempered glass . This size is ideal for me because i can ship other products also like cases, cover, earphones .

You can buy the tampered proof bag for tempered glass :

I hope now it is clear to you on how to pack a mobile tempered glass for shipping . If there is anything which i have missed then tell me that in the comment section .
Thank You :) and Happy Selling .

advantages-of-e-commerce

As everyone knows by what speed e-commerce is growing in India and worldwide .By 

the title of this post you might have guessed what we are going to discuss today . 

So an online seller has so many advantages over the offline seller . Let's see how it is 

 a good move to sell online .Today i have made a list of main advantages of e-commerce .

These advantages will help you if you are planning to start an online business .

Advantages :

 

Sell from anywhere : 

This is one of the main reason why i love e-commerce that it anywhere . Its your 

wish whether you are selling from home , physical store etc . The place should have a 

physical address . It is not mandate for a merchant to have a physical retail store  (shop) .

Sell Anytime 

The internet never sleeps . Internet stays awake 24 hours a day 7 days week and 365 days 

a year and 366 days if it is an leap year .Even if you are sleeping 

e-commerce-works-everytimee-commerce works 24/7 so there 

is no time boundation for a seller 

which he/she faces while doing the

 offline business You don't 

have to be in front of the 

computer screen for hours. Don't 

worry you'll be notified company once

 you'll get an order and you get the time 

of at least 2 days also to process the order. 

Large Audience : 

When you run a offline business shop , you are limited with not a very big group of 

audience . Here e-commerce plays an important role . If a customer has

an internet connection he/she can shop from your online store from anywhere and

E-Commerce-Provides-Large-Audience anytime .He/she doesn't have to visit your offline store . If

 you have good quality products to sell then online customer

 will not disappoint you . 

As we all know Large Audience = More sales = More Money .


Free Marketing of your store : 

This is one of the main advantage of e-commerce which can drive your sales crazy . 

You might be thinking why would anyone market your store for free but it does happen in 

the online industry . The Logic is simple e-commerce like flipkart, amazon,snapdeal etc 

has gained a lot of reputation so customer keeps visiting to buy products and if you are 

selling the product at good price and of good quality  then you don't have to worry a   

lot . No worries of pamphlets , advertisement in newspapers .

Small Investment :  

If you have gone through all  the  advantages of e-commerce i have mentioned above then i 

don't have to explain this niche alot. You don't have to spend on renting a shop 

and construction ,advertisement,and lot more . 

E-commerce is a  great place as not everyone can start with big .
