You may be surprised to learn that the majority of bean bags are sold online and shipped flat-packed without the beans. The reason beanbags are shipped without the beans is because of the relatively high cost of freight. Usually, it is more cost-effective to purchase the bean bag filling locally and fill the beanbag cover yourself. Pre-filled bean bags are expensive because of the high shipping costs. But where can you buy bean bag filler?
Bean bag filler is usually sold by volume. For example, most sellers will offer a 3.5 Cubic Feet packet of beanbag filling. 3.5 Cubic Feet is the equivalent of one hundred litres. However, some companies sell bean bag filler by weight. Beware of companies selling bean bag filler by weight, because unless you know the volume of beans you are receiving you can easily be fooled into paying too much. There’s only one reason retailers sell bean bag filler by weight and not volume and that is to confuse you the buyer. The weight of the product is irrelevant unless the supplier can tell you the density.
