How to pack in Vinted, the best materials
These 5 materials I am going to show you are very interesting. Currently each Vinted salesman is using various materials to package them. So it's up to you which material you choose. However, in each material you will find its advantages and disadvantages of use. Remember that above all it is better to choose an economical material, which is more resistant and in greater quantity, as well as depending on the product you are going to send, it is better to use materials such as the thinnest for resistant products and harder and firmer for non-resistant products:
The star material is film noir. It is strong, non-transparent and is used in warehouses to cover pallets. The good thing about this material is that although it is expensive for each package, we use very little material and a single roll can be used to package around 500 orders. Remember not to put it directly on the garment as it is plastic and does not let the clothes breathe. Cover the clothes first with a bag or paper. You can compare this film in Amazon or in your Chinese of confidence.
Buying cardboard boxes is not profitable. They are expensive. A cardboard box can cost you around one and a half euros or more. Use recycled boxes from other stores or boxes that come with your shoes. However, remember that cardboard boxes increase the weight of the product, which is why in many cases more bubble wrap is used than boxes, and it is also cheaper.
Bubble wrap is a great ally. For fragile products that we package in Vinted it is ideal. Wrap glasses and cups with this material. In the case of clothes or shoes it is not so necessary, as with one blow they would not be broken. Bubble wrap is economical compared to the amount of material it contains.
The adhesive tape you need to pack any kind of product we are going to send in Vinted. It is perfect for closing boxes or sealing packages sealed with film. It uses transparent adhesive tape so that the marks on the packaging are not visible. It is a material that ensures that the product does not come out and is resistant to shocks.
Black plastic bags
In contrast to typical plastic shipping bags with a price of approximately one euro per bag, there are large black plastic rubbish bags. The colour of these bags is more elegant than the typical grey rubbish bags. Cutting them to size will help us to pack any garment in a protected way. Even after they have been secured with film on top.
