But how do packages and parcels get from here to there?

Smith said the volume of business Monday was so great, he had to have extra workers.

"Try not to wake them up and try to secure the package", Lopez said.

"Mail as early as possible so there are no disappointments", said Lotito.

Readers who sell on eBay should also be mindful of the hidden cost of higher shipping rates: eBay takes a commission on shipping costs in addition to the value of the item sold, generating more revenue for its bottom line every time sellers (or buyers) pay more to ship.

In 2017, the postal service delivered 750 million packages, compared to 660 million in 2016.

"Online shopping is so popular now".

Ian Macrae, director of market intelligence at Ofcom, said: "Internet shopping is big business, with the average amount spent online in the United Kingdom more than double that of other countries. A lot of it is direct shipping", Johnson said. The videos, which are 3 minutes or less, address topics such as how to properly address packages, ship packages and pack a box so items arrive safely.

Melissa Warnke, of the Alabama Retail Association, said many retailers are selling online this year.

Christmas will be here in less than a week, and the deadlines to ship gifts in time for the holiday are this week.

Hollenbeck says for those that procrastinate until the final day, FedEx offers "same day" delivery on Christmas Day.

"I just think they're going to go like this - chew chew chew (laughs)", said customer Jennie Anes, as she moved the box she was carrying in circular motions to depict a circuitous route.

"It's the insane time of the year, but we look forward to it", Johnson said.
