#Take packaging into account. The type of packaging you use affects costs. Light packaging tends to be inexpensive. Smaller boxes add about a dollar to shipping costs, while light envelopes add about 25 cents. However, using a larger box can cost up to $5.

#Weigh your item. If you have a scale at home, weigh your item first. Make sure you weigh the package as you'll send it out. The weight, in addition to other information, can be entered into an online calculator to help you estimate a rough shipping cost. Jot it down and gather other information before using an online calculator.<ref>http://pages.ebay.com/seller-center/shipping/shipping-basics.html</ref>[[Image:Determine Shipping Costs Step 2 Version 2.jpg|center]]
