I have received two batches of fig cuttings this year and got about 40 last year. Not an expert for sure but here is what I noticed. The ones wrapped in wet paper towels were less successful than the ones that did not have any moisture.
This year I have 50% of those kept dry with roots started compared with 0% that came wet.
That is after 4 weeks 3 out of 6 and 0 out of 10.
If you want to send out sharpie sized cuttings, make sure there are at least 3 nodes and the cutting is longer than 3 inches. A stick 10 inches long does no one any good when there are 3 nodes 3 inches apart. Also dead wood does not make roots.
