Once you got the idea of what products you need to sell over and over again, it's time to choose who to deliver it for you. Take the shipping process very seriously as customers will want to know this upfront. Way back when I was just started to deliver herbal soaps to the U.S., I remember my smallest delivery is about 9 pieces of soaps, and proud am I to present to the customers, that I'm using fedex, using the logo of it and putting it on my site.

Below are three major options for shipping products:

1. United States Postal Service (USPS)
I have never used their services before but according to research, they are cheaper option for light weight products specifically under 2 pounds of weight. Products can be tracked accurately and no guarantee on delivery date. With their current tracking system, you will only know products are delivered and received but you don't know at what time they are exactly where. During Christmas time, they tend to become slow on their delivery hence only a few people, usually those in the U.S. are using this for non-urgent personal items and products.

2. FedEx
It's the best for me for light weight to heavy products delivery. Their tracking system makes one merchant proud since from their site you can track where exactly at what time up to the last second, your product is, and they offer 24 hour delivery from the Philippines to the U.S. right at the doorstep of the client. Like every good benefit, it is a little more pricey compared with others but really worth it. Products are safe and guaranteed delivered to the destination on time.

3. UPS
It is my backup delivery method but I haven't been able to use it, since most are handled by FedEx, unlike FedEx UPS is only good for lightweight items and it's very pricey and expensive option so FedEx is the prime choice still for me.
