The cost of postage sent through Australia Post is based on the size, weight and sometimes location of where you are sending from. You can use your own packaging, flat rate eBay branded Australia Post packaging or the Australia Post range of packaging.
You can save time and money on the price of regular Australia Post shipping by printing your postage label at home from your My eBay account. Once printed, stick the label to your package and drop it in a post box.
Printing your postage label through your My eBay account will automatically upload tracking information for you and your buyer. For valuable items, consider optional features like signature on delivery and extra cover*

If you don’t want to wait for a courier at home, there are plenty of services (see list below) that allow you to simply drop the item off, much like Australia Post.
If you regularly ship items, you might want to consider using a provider that links to your eBay account. This way you can easily manage your eBay sales. Most providers include a calculator on their website with 'real time' price quotes so you know how much you will be charged when you drop it off.
Always ship with tracking and share the tracking status with your buyer. If you are shipping a high value item, ask for in-store warranties.
