  1. Envelope must be “not too rigid.” This for items that must not be bent? I think I’ll keep sending items in a rigid mailer for 70¢, which is probably less than eBay’s special rate. Low-priced cards, stamps, and postcards are not scam magnets so I see no reason to change anything about how I ship them.

  2. Id have to imagine that eBay is simply taking the loss – as they do in the sneaker authentication situation.

    eBay has enough “free cash” (aka stolen seller funds) to be able to fund these kinds of projects – they question is – how big is the upside (how many more sales will be made because of it) …AND when the funding for this program runs out – then what?

    I dont think that eBay has the clout to have USPS create a new item just for them … but eBay at times is desperate to hoodwink Wall Street that all is well in “marketplace land” and so taking a small loss on the postage is worth keeping the facade alive.

    Another day in eBayland!

  3. will be fun when someone takes those to the post office.
    the clerks will not know anything about this and will want more money.

  4. Why would USPS charge more if eBay already handled it? I just wonder if it’s limited to the category.

    1. because the clerks will know nothing about it. they will probably try to charge for 1st class package.

      ebay does not deliver mail, so no, ebay does not handle it.
