3 Tips for Saving Money on Shipping Reduce costs with these helpful ideas.

Every penny counts, especially when it comes to shipping packages. Here are three tips for saving money.

1. Choose the right shipping option. If the value of the package is small, you might not need to pay extra for a signature upon delivery. If you offer free shipping, you can save money by skipping on next-day shipping or return receipts.

2. Don't get stuck using one carrier. Smart business owners use online shipping software to access and compare rates from several carriers.

3. Save time and money. Businesses can save up to 40 percent on USPS rates by using a sending solution like SendPro Online. Compare carrier rates, and eliminate trips to the post office by scheduling package pickups right from your desk.

Get your packages out the door while you do what you do best: growing your business.
