Shipping can be done through USPS, UPS, and FedEX. In addition, you can use Paypal to pay for and create shipping labels for both UPS and USPS.
4.Ship the item immediately. It is a good idea to ship the item on the same day or the next business day after you receive the verified payment.

Trust can be built through this process no matter what you sell. Sometimes, even cheap noise cancelling headphones can bring a great number of customers to your store.

You can leave positive feedback thank for their prompt payment and email them some code for discount of the future products, or you can send iphone 4 accessories as gift with the item as so many of them use iphone nowadays. In that way, customers are likely to visit your store regularly.
