How to use eBay satchels & boxes

Our eBay satchels and boxes are for sending items within Australia weighing 5kg or less. Your item will be sent using our standard Parcel Post service, and delivered in 2+ business days.

Simply choose the eBay satchel or box your item best fits in.

Pay for and print postage labels through your
eBay account.

And post it at any one of our 15,000+ street posting boxes, 4000+ Post Offices, or 300+ parcel lockers

You'll be billed for your postage costs by eBay.

Our eBay satchels & boxes are part of our If It Packs, It Posts packaging range. That means your flat rate postage is based on the destination and size of packaging you choose. As long as your item weighs 5kg or less – if it packs, it posts.

What are eBay satchels & boxes suitable for?

eBay satchels and boxes are sent via Parcel Post and are suitable for sending items up to $100 in value. If your item is valued over $100, you should purchase Extra Cover – it provides loss or damage cover from $100 up to $5,000. Parcel Post is not suitable for items over $100 such as jewellery, electronics or passports unless Extra Cover is purchased.

If your parcel is lost or damaged, and you haven’t purchased Extra Cover, compensation of up to $100 and a postage refund may be payable. Subject to the Australian Consumer Law, Australia Post does not accept liability for any consequential or indirect loss or damage arising due to any failure related to our service. Neither the cover included with our Parcel Post service nor the purchase of Extra Cover limits any rights you may have under the Australian Consumer Law.

Using your own packaging

If our eBay packaging isn't right for you, you can also print out postage labels through eBay for regular or express delivery, using your own packaging up to 22kg within Australia.

Printing your labels & lodging your parcels

When you've sold an item on eBay, follow the below steps to print postage and post parcels:

  • Log in to your eBay account: 'Print postage label' will appear as one of your actions in My eBay.
  • Follow the prompts to print a label and you'll be charged the cost through your eBay seller invoice.
  • Select additional features if required: Signature on delivery# and Extra Cover4.
  • Attach the printed label to your packaging (either eBay packaging, or your own packaging)
  • Take your parcels to a Post Office, if you'd like a lodgement receipt, or drop them in a red or yellow street posting box as appropriate. You can even use your MyPost account to drop off your prepaid parcels at a Parcel Locker, 24/7.
# Additional costs apply. Australia Post will not deliver parcels requiring a signature on delivery to a Secure Parcel Receptacle. View our domestic parcels guide (PDF 444kB) for more information.
