Corrugated Shipping Boxes
RSC ( Regular Slotted Container )RSC (Regular Slotted Container) are the typical everyday Corrugated boxes. The lengthwise flaps are one-half the container's width so they meet in the center when folded. The RSC box can be used for most products and is the most common box style.
HSC ( Half Slotted Container )
HSC (Half Slotted Container) Corrugated Boxes are typically not stocked but can be special ordered. They are same as the RSC - Regular Slotted Containers except they are without one set of flaps. In other words, the top is open. HSC are common with Bulk Cargo Containers where one HSC fits overtop another HSC for pallet or gaylord sized loads.
FOL ( Full Overlap Slotted Containers )
FOL (Full Overlap Slotted Containers) boxes have lengthwise flaps that are almost the width of the box. When these flaps are closed, the outer flaps come to within one inch of making a complete overlap. This style of box is especially resistant to rough handling. HD (Heavy Duty) and DW (Double-Wall) boxes provide even tougher choices.

See how many power sellers shoot you down. Many will point you to a neg in their profile from the early days when they didn't know better.
I have received items in cereal boxes and didn't leave negative feedback, but not all buyers are unconcerned about packaging. You are running a higher risk of damage in transit because a cereal box does not offer the protection of corrugated cardboard.
It's your business and you can do as you please, but I'm just telling you that some buyers find it tacky.
