Co-founder of Graphics and More (three times named to the Inc. 5000 list). Knows how to bootstrap and be very profitable. Expert in Amazon and eBay selling. Speaks a little geek.
Don't believe the hype, it's very difficult in the early stages of business to get any kind of funding. I have years of experience bootstrapping a company (now named to the Inc. 5000 list three times) and making it very profitable.
eBay can be a great sales channel for your business, if you know how to work it. I do and I'd love to help you.
I'm really good at navigating the ins and outs of selling on Amazon, whether you're just getting started or faced with a new hurdle.
Depending on your shipping volume, you'll likely find better rates through a USPS consolidator, like DHL.
A consolidator works in conjunction with USPS. They typically pick up mail at your location, deliver it to their nearest shipping hub and then deliver each piece to the USPS location closest to the shipping destination. The mail is passed off to USPS and USPS takes it from there, delivering to the customer.
UPS and Fedex (I believe) also offer similar services.
