Some Helpful Shipping Tips


During these unprecedented times as COVID-19 continues to affect communities and day-to-day life across the world we would like to highlight a few of the features on Listia and some tips to ensure buyer and seller transactions continue to run smoothly. This is also the perfect time to do some decluttering in your home!

Carriers and shipping companies are considered an essential service right now and there has been minimal disruption to date. Most carriers will have slight variations on their signature required processes but otherwise, most, if not all, are open as usual.

Very Important:

If you need to visit the site of a carrier to drop off packages, we ask that you adhere to social distancing guidelines and follow the advice of staff there. It’s advised to wear a mask when going into a store and many employees appreciate that. In order to limit the time spent outside your home please remember to reuse supplies, such as boxes or bubble wrap, received from any other packages you get delivered to your home, and pack your item before you head to the store. Also, it’s quick and easy to buy and print a shipping label at home through Listia.

After your item is packaged and ready to ship don’t forget you can schedule a Free USPS pick up for the following services:

  • Priority Mail (including flat rate packages)
  • First Class Package
  • Returns
  • First Class Package International
  • Priority Mail International
  • Priority Mail Express

Alternatively, if you happen to see your neighborhood post office delivery driver they will often take your package for you. Be sure to thank them for their service!

Like many of you, we’re adapting to new ways of working but we’re still here to help. If you do have an issue, we encourage you to search our support pages and visit our Blog for up-to-date information on Listia. If you can’t find what you need, please do not hesitate to send in a Support Ticket!

So much continues to change during COVID-19 and we’re committed to help buyers and sellers navigate the uncertainty. Please stay safe!
