I use eBay branded boxes whenever the size is right, but I also like to jazz up non-eBay branded packaging. I use eBay tape on my plain Mylar envelopes when I ship very small items. I also like to use the eBay stickers on USPS-supplied boxes. I get feedback that routinely mentions my professional looking shipping!

Newspaper is heavy, plus the ink rubs off on the recipient's hand and may also soil the packed item. As a buyer, I find it unattractive as well as unflattering to the item wrapped in it. (Wadded-up newspaper around a fragile bubble-wrapped item is an exception, but the disadvantages re: weight and ink stains still apply.) The new eBay-branded tissue paper and stickers are elegant and give sold items a finishing touch of class.

 

@clbcollectables Your package IS beautiful and meticulously wrapped — looks fantastic!

I absolutely love the new tissue paper and stickers! 

Everyone normally dreads packing including myself but lately I am loving it! I have noticed faster feedback from customers as well. I personally think it has to do with how nicely the pakcing presentation is. Only regret I did not order more with my coupon!!! 20170412_223337.jpg

I believe it's worth the extra time to wrap buyer's purchases nicely and the Ebay branded shipping supplies let me do it for a reasonable cost. Thanks Ebay!

@aswegrow2 Hello! Regarding your question of whether the tissue paper ink rubs off when wet - we tested this before ordering the supplies by pouring water on the top of several layers of tissue and then rubbing them against white clothing. Nothing came off, your items should be safe.

The packaging looks very nice, but I buy my multicolor tissue and paper boxes at a discount store. It is all about the base cost as well as appearance. I can't imagine paying $18.99 for tissue paper unless I am getting 1,899 pieces of tissue. My cost is a penny per sheet of tissue and less than .05 per paper box. Sorry, not a cost conscious option.

@authenticvintage - If you have an Ebay store, you get an allowance to "buy" these every quarter. In other words, it's 'free' (included in your store fee, a benefit of having an Ebay store).

@mansi_aneja While not a tissue or tape pack I did want to share some eBay Branded boxes.  Collectibles come in all shapes and sizes so over 90% of our boxes are custom sized.  My preference is using my quarterly store coupon for eBay Branded supplies for a 25 count bundle of the largest RSC Case available ... 18 x 14 x 12.  From one of those boxes I can get between 2 - 4 smaller boxes so many wind up with the eBay brand on them when they ship. And yes, I also use the outer corrugated eBay branded shipping container that the bundle comes in to optimize the box material!  I have found the board quality to be consistent and excellent and we occasionally get compliments in messages or our Feedback about the eBay packing materials.  It is a nice professional touch when we can use them.  If sales are good a bundle does not last  long in a quarter so we look forward to the next coupon.

 What a fun contest! Here is how I utilize my eBay branded tissue paper - item wrapped neatly in eBay tissue paper before being placed into a clear bag which also includes a handwritten thank you note and business card.

The item is then placed into either a fun patterened poly mailer or ebay taped wrapped box with the bright green eBay sticker on the outside of the package, preferably on the front - so the mail carriers and anyone who else sees the package along the journey will be reminded to shop on eBay, thus driving additional customers to the platform :)

Tip: use the clear part of the tape to cover your tracking number so even if the label gets wet the drivers can type the numbers in.  Also, does anybody know where we can find a good tape dispenser for the ebay tape?Tip: use the clear part of the tape to cover your tracking number so even if the label gets wet the drivers can type the numbers in.

Yes, eBay is giving away a free tape dispenser if you buy a pack of 24+ packs of tape: http://www.ebay.com/itm/252445245174.

IMG_20170422_121223892.jpgI am extremely happy with the new branded tissue paper and  stickers!

I think branded packaging gives our items the special touch it needs. I worked retail while in college and the company was about presentation and customer service so I am grateful to have learned and been apart of such a company so I can hopefully replicate value to my ebay customers. 

 

Likewise, I fold the tissue paper to make a pocket in the front so I can fit a thank you card or business card so they will remember my store and return again and again

 

Thanks again ebay

I've never been one to take the time to wrap an item in tissue before shipping it...until I got some eBay branded tissue paper! Now I wrap EVERYTHING I can. :-) Someone is getting the most cared for flip flops sold this week! I love the design and customers seem to enjoy "opening a gift".  100_6002.JPG100_6003.JPGThanks eBay!
