Subject: Have a question about media mail...

Recently I've begun selling off some of my books online, since I have so many.

Despite using media mail for well over a year now, I have a question about it. For people who sell stuff and send it media mail...how are we supposed to put a printed packing slip (invoice) inside the package, if media mail doesn't allow stuff inserted inside? Or are invoices exempt from the rule? Could someone help me out here? The reason I ask is because last week I mailed two things to two buyers and I put in a packing slip in each. But then later I was telling my mother about it and she was like, oh no! You're not supposed to put notes inside, remember?

Anyway, any feedback would be appreciated. Natalie

Natalie, I'll put a link to the Domestic Mail Manual regulations regarding media mail at the end of my post. According to the recently revised DMM, a packing slip would still qualify your books as media mail. What you are looking for is in sections 4.4 and 4.5 of the regulations.
