  • What’s the best way to post my item?

    Once your item has been sold, print a discounted label from our postage label service. You can choose to either drop it off at the post office, another convenient drop-off location or have a carrier pick it up directly from your home. Tracking will be automatically uploaded to your transaction to make it easy for your buyer to follow. Learn more about eBay postage labels .

    We provide a number of discounted postage options through partnerships with major carriers. You can use our postage calculator to estimate how much it should cost.

  • Where can I get postage & packaging supplies?

    You can use any box or parcel you may already have at home as long as it is packaged safely. Alternatively, you can purchase boxes and satchels from the post office.

  • How should I choose my listing price?

    For most items, we can provide a price recommendation for you based on recently sold, similar items. How you price your item can depend on how you prefer to sell it, whether as an auction or as a Buy It Now listing. Choosing a lower starting price for auctions can help create more interest.
