Default Shipping package without tracking

I have an item that weighs .5 of an ounce, it is 3/4 inch thick, can I ship it in a bubble mailer for regular postage without paying for tracking.

I don't care about INR, I have 100 free items that I can sell for $2 plus $3.53 shipping. So if I can ship for 53 cents profit is $5.00 , if shipped with tracking profit is $2

People like tracking but sure you can do what you are saying.

I dont think buyer like tracking as long as the item is delivered on time,only if they do not get their item or past delivery date then they want tracking.
You could always try,but letter /documents up to 1/4 inch thick is not meant for items,but papers,but sellers seem to have no problem .

This is truly what it boils down to : whether or not the people at the post office you use will accept the shipment. Technically if it's in a bubble mailer then you're required to send it as a parcel (which includes tracking). I heard this straight from the postmaster at our local PO a few years ago.

I'm pretty sure USPS doesn't allow stamps to be used on packages anymore (except in cases where they know it's a one-off mailing, like at christmas time) so the only way you could ship without tracking would be to print a First Class Flats label. 98% chance that's going to be denied by your PO, in my opinion. Because the rule on the flats class is that it's supposed to be used for documents.. so bubble mailers aren't eligible.

I say it boils down to your local PO because not every PO enforces the rules to the same extent. For 2 years I shipped 1" thick parcels as First Class flats, adding USPS tracking stickers after the label printed. One day a new supervisor came to our PO and immediately made me stop.. threatening to have me put in jail if I kept doing it.
