What’s the smallest parcel I can send?

Sendle has a dedicated <0.5 lb Micro option for sending smaller, lighter items. And the best part is, there’s no need to prepay or bulk-buy our most affordable option—simply pay for what you send. 

Heads up: Whatever you send that weighs less than half a pound, no matter the size*, can be shipped with our Micro size option—it just needs to meet the weight requirements.

Below is all the information you need to know to send using the 0.5 lb envelope option. 

The basics: 

  • Weight requirements
    Your Micro parcel weighs less than 0.5 lb.
  • Costs associated with the 0.5 lb Micro
    Micro packages can be sent nationwide for low flat-rates, starting from $3.20. This includes the easy drop-off, tracking, and gas prices (you can also get a quick estimate from your dashboard, or view all pricing here).
  • Is a signature included?
    Shipments are automatically labeled as "Authority to Leave", which means that they do not require a signature. 
  • Packaging requirements
    The parcel must not exceed 108” in combined length and circumference. You can buy packaging from your favorite packaging or office supply store. For this size, you can use a box, an envelope, or a soft bag (padded is fine).

The details:

  • Are shipping labels prepaid?
    There’s no need to prepay or bulk-buy. When you book online, you’ll be given a label to download and attach to your shipment. The best part is that you only pay for what you book.
  • What protection policies are available?
    Sendle Protection is available for all shipments. The level of coverage is the same for all packages on Sendle. Read more here.
  • Are Sendle’s Micro shipments express or overnight?
    We do not offer express or overnight service. All packages are sent the same way. But, Sendle is speedy. Many packages are eligible for our 2-day Delivery Guarantee. 
  • Can a larger package be booked as a Micro or Mini shipment?
    Yes, provided that the box complies with weight limitations for each size, the smallest of our package sizes do not have a limit on volume*. 

*Packages must be less than 108” in combined length and circumference.
