Default a problem with shipping?

Hey ladies, maybe someone can help me out. Im trying to ship some ribbon out. i weighed it at home and calculated the shiping through USPS and it said it was 4.90 for cheapest shipping. So i took it over to the post office ready to ship and she said the cheapest was 13.99. I came home and weighed it again and again it said 4.90. What if i buy the label and print online, would they have to give me that price at the post office? Also i receive my stuff in those white thick plastic bags, i would like to use those cuz they are not heavy at all, what are those called? I asked for one and they gave me a heavy envelope that i didn't end up using.

I get @ $11 parcel post if you can find a small box. If it will fit in a small priority box or envelope it's $4.90

If it's the poly bag provided by the post office the price varies based on weight, if you use your own it's less expensive. When an items is heavy and you can fit it in a small flat rate box or envelope that usually your best bet. Shipping can be your worst enemy I remember when I first started selling on ebay I ended paying more on shipping than I charged so I had to eat the cost on my first couple of shipments until I figured it out.

Poly mailers, I get them on Ebay, pretty cheap! They are supposed to not rip either and water proof.

Just a thought about your shipping problem, not sure if anyone addressed this or not, but, IF you print online and ship...IF your calcuations are off, I just wonder if your customer will get a bill in the mail from the post office having to pay for the difference or it get sent back to you? Just a though!
