Australia Post Packaging
When using eBay or Australia box labels, you need to purchase the packaging at the Post Office or online on eBay at the Australia Post Store. The price of (bulk) packaging is cheaper when you order online and the delivery of eBay branded packaging is free of charge.
Please note that both eBay branded satchels and Australia Post branded satchels can be used with the satchels label.
If you package the parcel please use sufficiently sturdy cardboard or strong bags. More hints and tips can be found on the Australia Post page.
You can give your package a more professional look by using eBay branded packaging which you can buy on eBay and is delivered to you for free.
Satchels have maximum weight restrictions to ensure efficient processing. Parcels that exceed the weight restriction may result in significant delivery delays and/or Return to Sender. If your parcel is larger than the allowed limit, please use our larger satchels.
At the option to add Domestic Postage, select the option “Calculate: Cost varies by buyer location”. Select the service you wish to offer from the dropdown list. You can select up to 4 possibilities.
