  1. With five anchor stores we get coupons for about 750.00 for shipping supplies. Of that we probably use 150.00 for bags. There tape is smelly and almost useless. Most of the time their bubble bags are cut wrong leaving one side weak and anything you put into the bag might fall out before it gets to where it is supposed to go. Tissue paper, give me a break I can buy plain ordinary tissue paper cheaper at the dollar store than Ebay sells it for.

    We usually sell our coupons to friends or neighbors who just have to have the latest in designs for packaging. We con’t have the time or desire to fancy up a package when plain works better. Ebay would do well to lower the store cost and keep their crap for the fools who need comfort when packing a package.

    True business people use just regular packing supplies as they don’t have the desire to christmas wrap everything. Let ebay do their own advertising.

    1. I have heard about the smelly tape. Who would send their items with that tape on it?
      I had a package sent to me with that smells. It’s the eBay tape. Ishy

      Sellers reuse Amazon boxes because they are treated higher than full paid priority packages.

      It’s cheaper to buy a roll or two of red duct tape for that holiday touch. LOL

  2. If they want us to use their branded supplies, then they should give them out freely. The USPS provides all the boxes that I need, and I don’t pay for boxes and envelopes. Tape is cheap.

  3. Who gives a rat’s filthy posterior what eBay wants when they don’t give a damn what the sellers want?!

    I use eBay packing tape. You know why? I forget how I qualified, but I got it for FREE when they first started offering it. That is the one and ONLY reason I use it!

    C’mon eBay, start giving it away if it’s that important to you! Remember, eBay, Amazon boxes cost us nothing and help us make up a little for the lost sales you cause small sellers on a daily basis. Plus, the USPS seems to deliver Amazon boxes faster.

    eBay must start living by “Do Unto Others” before embattled sellers reciprocate.
