How do I ship my sold Twin Baby Bargains items?
Twin Baby Bargains takes the hassle out of shipping, so that you can get back to doing what you do best- being super parents of twins! We use negotiated flat rates to get buyers the most affordable shipping available and we send sellers an electronically generated pre-paid shipping label at no charge- just print and slap it on the package and your sale is donezo! 

The buyer pays the expense of shipping at the time of the sale

  • Items that weigh up to 1 lb will be shipped at a negotiated flat rate of $3.99.
    • When listing your product for sale select “Less than 1 lb” under shipping and tax.
  • Items that weigh 1-2 lbs will be shipped at a negotiated flat rate of $6.99.
    • When listing your product for sale select the category “1-2 lbs” under shipping and tax.
  • Items that weigh 2-10 lbs will be shipped at a negotiated flat rate of $12.99.
    • When listing your product for sale select the category “2-10 lbs” under shipping and tax.
  • Items that weigh 10-25 lbs will be shipped at a negotiated flat rate of $19.99.
    • When listing your product for sale select the category “10-25 lbs” under shipping and tax.
  • Items that weigh 25-50 lbs will be shipped at a negotiated flat rate of $25.99.
    • When listing your product for sale select the category “25-50 lbs” under shipping and tax.
  • Items that weigh over 50 lbs (furniture, large toys) can only be listed as Local Pick-up items. This option functions as a Craigslist type posting (although among a much more applicable twin demographic of users). Your sale will be processed without any shipping expenses and you simply communicate with your buyer regarding a mutual time/place for pick-up.

Twin Baby Bargains Shipping Tips:

  • The seller assumes any and all overage charges or errors in shipping expenses that may occur from inaccurate reporting of product weights. If you plan on shipping many items of variable weights we recommend that you have an accurate postage scale (available at Amazon.com for around 15 bucks- this will save you money on potential shipping errors in the long run).
  • Packaging options for most packages we have found that poly mailers are the most economical option. We have found there are some great deals available on Amazon.com.  You can find 10 X 13 poly mailers which only add approximately 0.3 oz to your package weight, they are durable, and you can purchase quite a few at a low cost.

How do I know what will weigh more or less than 1 lb?

Here is a quick guide to help you decide, if you would like a precise weight it would be best to weight the items on a postage scale (cheap and available on Amazon).

Weight of the Item   Examples of items that usually weigh the listed amount 
Items up to 1 lb         Sets of light clothes up to size 24 months: such as up to 4 onesies or shirts, 2 pairs of heavy pants(jeans/khakis), 2 full outfits (tops & bottoms/sets of dresses/sets of rompers/sets of overalls), sets of small accessories, swimwear sets, bootie sets, 2 pairs of little kid shoes up to size 5 (including boots/winter shoes)
1 lb-2 lbs  Heavier clothing sets in larger sizes beyond 24 months: inluding kid shoe/boot sets above size 5, winter coats and jackets
  • Remember, presentation matters. We have found that most twin parents appreciate when their twin baby items are covered prior to be placed in their package. This provides a little extra protection, but most importantly improves presentation and ultimately shows that you care. Be careful when using tissue paper since tissue paper can sometimes bleed when wet.  Instead of tissue paper, you can use thin plastic bags that will offer better protection.
