How would I go about shipping things? I'm starting up an online store and I need to know where I'd get packaging and the most affordable way to ship my inventory. Please help.

I recently helped a client research shipping, I never realized the complexity of this task until I did it first hand. My suggestion is to look for a shipping consultant and pay for an few hours of their guidance. I think it will save you a tremendous amount of time, energy and money in the long haul. Get it, "long haul" Happy

I don't really have a huge budget. Do you know places where I could get boxes? Or material to ship with?

I recommend consulting with logistics services companies such as APL as they would be able to help you figure your shipping needs.

You should consult with an agency providing shipping services. This would help you to proceed further.
