Buying and printing postage labels

You can save time and money by printing the postage labels for items you're sending within Australia on eBay.

When you print a postage label on eBay, our negotiated rates let you save money relative to what you would pay at the post office for most services, and you'll save time by not having to stand in line. The charge for the label is then added to your monthly invoice.

Here are a few more benefits of using our labels:

  • You don't need a special printer or adhesive labels – just print on normal A4 paper and tape it to the package.
  • It's easy to add services such as Signature on Delivery or Extra Cover insurance.
  • Your parcel's tracking information is uploaded automatically.
  • You can add the order number or other custom text to your label.

Postage labels are only available for items sent within Australia.
