Give it a look if you want.
Neither of those things are valid for media mail so if they inspect your package you will have your package held for weeks and can cause issues with your transaction if you told them it will arrive by a certain time.

Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

I wondered about that, but aren't the postage options that appear based on your listing vetted and set up by eBay in accordance with their postal contract? I rolled with it and never had an issue.

Do you really think there's much chance of them "inspecting" a sealed box with pre-printed postage for the appropriate weight?

Anyway, just a possibility for the guy.

I've had it happen to me twice and both times I lost out on shipping because eventually they just send it back to you and I had to refund the buyer because of the length of time. Using media mail authorizes the USPS to open your package for inspection at any step of the way.
