You might save a few pounds by using cheaper packaging but at the end of the day you need to weigh up whether cheaper packaging is going to be worth it in the long run, both from a customer service and minimising complaints perspective.
The first thing you should consider is the actual value of the products you are having shipped. Inappropriate or insufficient packaging could potentially lead to damaged goods and a great deal of inconvenience for your customers at the receiving end. The cost of returns, claims and giving credits on your business account will damage your reputation, the relationship you have with established customers and if the customers are new, they’re likely to look elsewhere in the future.
