For retail sales, I don't charge a packing fee. I use some new boxes and
some recycled ones, but only if they look good.
I am not worried about spending a little time and materials for a retail
but usually the 15% shipping fee leaves a buck or two to go towards
packing time and materials.
Wholesale is another story. I charge the exact shipping amount plus a
packing fee of 5% of the wholesale price. I will also use dirty, well-used
boxes if they are sturctrally sound.
Just what I've come up with; doesn't mean it's right for everyone!
