eCommerce Packaging Bags
eCommerce packaging bags are mailing bags and padded mailers that have been developed for use by online shops for sending online orders. They generally fall into two different categories, padded ecommerce bags and non-padded mailing bags. eCommerce bags are a very popular product for sending online orders as they are faster to pack with than ecommerce boxes, the integrated high speed peel & seal strip sealing makes these quick and easy without the need for additional sealing products. Their flexible construction conforms well to different sized items and they rarely need any extra internal packaging to ensure the order gets to their customer in good condition.
Types of eCommerce Packaging Bags
There are several different types of eCommerce packaging bags for different applications and for packaging different items. Below we take a look at some of the main types of ecommerce bags.
eCommerce Courier Bags
eCommerce courier bags are often recognised as poly mailers, the opaque plastic mailers that are used a lot for sending online orders. However there are other types too, their paper cousins are an eco friendly alternative being very similar in design but manufactured from paper instead of plastic. E-commerce courier bags are generally used for robust and soft products such as clothing and pre-packaged items such as toys.
Eco Friendly eCommerce Bags
There are different types of eco friendly ecommerce bags and generally fall into two eco friendly categories. There are recyclable ecommerce bags, and biodegradable ecommerce bags, both of which are good for the environment but the biodegradable options definitely come out tops. Paper mailing bags are the best eco friendly e-commerce packaging bags as they are both recyclable and biodegradable. Paper mailing bags also come in a padded form with a paper padded layer instead of a bubble or foam padding.
E-commerce Packaging Bags for Clothing
Poly mailers and paper mailing bags are both e-commerce packaging bags for clothing. Most clothing is soft and non breakable so can be shipped in an e-commerce mailing bag that doesn't need extra padding. All our non-padded e-commerce bags are suitable for clothing and have the added bonus of being very fast to pack. Clothing also typically has a high return rate so we also offer ecommerce bags with a returns strip so your customers can return items quickly and easily in the same packaging as it was sent in.
Padded Packaging Bags for eCommerce
Padded packaging bags for ecommerce are ecommerce bags with a padded liner. These liners can be a bubble or foam liner, or an eco friendly paper honeycomb or waste paper shred lining. Bubble lined packaging bags like jiffy bags have been used by online stores for sending web orders for years but now there are eco friendly alternatives such as the paper padded bags from Jiffy. The padded liner gives an extra cushioning layer of protection that helps to protect products from bumps while travelling through the post.
