Make sure to check 'large package' or 'irregular package'

 

NO need to check either of those

Since the box is made by USPS and in there Priority mail supplies

It is not a LARGE package and it is not irregular package

 

It is just a package/thick envelope and ships based on weight and distance

No need to enter any dimensions


Delivery Confirmation is now called "Tracking"

BUT seems to still be Delivery Confirmation

Copy & Paste from USPS site >>

If you shipped with Express Mail®, you’ll get point-by-point tracking details. If you used another service—USPS Tracking™, Certified Mail™, Registered Mail™ —you’ll see when it went out for delivery.

we live in a 3 dimensional world, one or 2 of those 6's need to be removed.

postage is determined by weight and package size.

If you don't see 'priority medium mailing tube' as a choice, you can use the dimensions 6x6x38, since the tube is smaller than a rectangular box of those dimensions.

Make sure to check 'large package' or 'irregular package'

Update on the medium priority mailing tube, when I went to the post office to actually mail my item I was told it goes by the weight just like other priority rates and the tube was $ 10.25 at the post office and I am guessing it would still actually be cheaper printing directly from our ebay site but this was my first time using the tube priority.

Hello, it looks like the small tube is $ 5.60 & the medium is $12.00. This is what i was told a few weeks ago by my post office in Phoenix,AZ. I will be using one of the boxes tomorrow so I hope it is correct.

 

Good luck
