October 16, 2009, Newsletter Issue #94: Protect Yourself When Using an Online Shipping Company

Tip of the Week

Using a small business shipping company or individual provider that you find online can save you money. But, how can you be sure that the chosen provider won't run off with your deposit and your item?

If you found your shipping company through an open market place Web site, you have several protection options to ensure that the shipping company you are working with is honest and trustworthy.

The Web site itself may offer their own protection policy for shippers. Certain restrictions may apply, so make sure you read the fine print.

Web sites usually have a rating system for their shipping providers. The rating systems allow you to read reviews from past users before making a decision.

These protections are in place so that you have peace of mind when using a small business shipping company or individual who you find through an online marketplace.
