eBay recently became compliant with USPS rules around Media Mail, according to employees during a recent podcast. The statement was prompted by a question from a seller who wondered why he could no longer print Media Mail shipping labels through eBay for magazines he sells.
“As you know, magazines technically have never qualified for media mail,” the seller asked in part. “However, I’ve been selling magazines on eBay for more than a decade with media mail because when I started selling them, I could see that all my competitors were using media mail and I wasn’t. So I called and basically the, the Help Source at eBay said that if you’re using eBay labels, you’re gonna be fine.”
