Shipping packages from the U.S. involves several steps, each with its own associated cost. Although some of these costs are out of our hands, there are some clever hacks you can use to lower your shipping costs with MyMalls! Let’s take a closer look at our 5 golden tricks!

Your Ultimate How to Save Money on Shipping Guide

1: Free Repack Service for Single Packages

Have you ever opened a bag of chips to discover that it was mostly air? Few disappointments are so acutely profound as witnessing a ratio of 10% product to 90% nothingness.

OK, maybe we’re exaggerating (only slightly!), but the same is true of online shopping parcels. Often you’ll find that an order arriving in a big box contains an excessive amount of packaging. Bubble wrap and air cushions are effective protectors, but they bulk out the dimensions of a parcel, adding to the total shipping cost.

For example, if you’ve ordered a single item from Amazon, it’s likely to arrive in a box that’s predominantly filled with air or paper void fill. With your permission, we’ll repack your parcel to condense its size, making it cheaper to send. And we’ll ensure it’s just as well-protected as when we received it.

Please be aware that you need to request to get your order repacked to the smallest box possible to save you money! Want to estimate your shipping rates? Head over to our handy shipping cost calculator!

2: Combine 3-in-1 for free

You might have already heard of our handy '3-in-1 combine service', but here’s a refresher, just in case! When you have multiple orders sent to your personal MyMalls address, we’ll allow you to combine up to three packages into one for free. So instead of having 3 separate packages shipped, you can combine them into one single package! This easily saves you an average of $60!

So how does it work if you have more than 3 packages? Let’s say you’ve made another Amazon order, this time with 4 items. Each one is sent out separately and received at our warehouse. Instinctively, you might choose to combine three items and leave one as an individual. In fact, it’s cheaper to combine two packages twice. However, you can also choose to leave one package in the warehouse and wait for more packages to come in ;-). This is possible because we give you 60 days of free storage!

To take advantage of our free 3-in-1 service, simply log into your MyMalls suite and in the dashboard you’ll find the ‘Ready to pay’ section. Select the ‘Repack and combine’ button and you’ll be given the option to select which packages to put together.

So remember, if you have four packages, selecting two combinations of two packages each works out cheaper than one combination of three packages plus an extra parcel. A top tip that can save you substantial amounts of cash! Simply tick the boxes of the packages you’d like to combine into one shipment, then hit ‘Repack and combine’. Our warehouse team will do all the behind-the-scenes work, and you’ll be able to enjoy a super saving!
