For online eCommerce businesses, shipping your product to customers presents a unique set of challenges. You need to be able to safely ship your items to your customer while minimizing shipping costs through package dimension management, all while maintaining your brand.
Whether you're a high volume retailer, an Amazon seller or you sell products on Etsy or eBay, proper packaging is incredibly important to your bottom line.
Consider this: Your product’s eComm packaging is the first impression your customers will have of your business. This impression is often extremely difficult to reverse, and many people will consider another retailer if they receive a damaged order. American Paper and Packaging will work with you to develop packaging solutions to protect your goods in transit, promote your brand and profit from eCommerce shipping.
AP&P has a wide range of packaging products to fit any eCommerce business requirements, including:

Mailing tubes are ideal for shipping posters and banners to your eCommerce customers. We offer 3-ply, spiral-wound tubes for durability and product protection.

Lower Your Shipping Costs with Custom Packaging for Your eCommerce Business
Several major shipping companies are placing a higher emphasis on package dimensions, to the point where a one-pound box could be charged at the same rate as an 11-pound box – simply because the dimensions are too large. AP&P’s custom packaging solutions protect eCommerce retailers from these extra charges.
Obviously, not every eCommerce business exclusively sells 3 x 3 x 3” widgets requiring a single packaging solution. In reality, there is no “one size fits all” fix to packaging challenges. We regularly work with companies to create the best solution for packaging complicated-shaped products. In addition to the endless range of box types, sizes and shapes, we provide online businesses with a range of protective products like:
- Instapack Quick Protective Bags
- Egg Crate Foam
- Pick and Pack Custom Foam Inserts
- Fill-Air Packing Cushions
- Cellulose Wadding
- Static Shielding Bags
Your eCommerce business needs to find the sweet spot between protection, size and aesthetics. You don’t want to send a set of drill bits in a corrugated box sized to fit a power drill when a simple bubble mailer will do the job. American Paper & Packaging has the eCommerce shipping solution for your online business to keep you running efficiently throughout the holiday season and year-round.
