Just wrap up parcel. Get the buyers address from the paypal payment, write it on the parcel in the usual way. Take to post office and post!

Don't bother with the Ebay labels. Look at the Royal Mail website for information on the size and weight of packages, so that you set a reasonable P&P price on the listing. Then just pay at the PO as usual.

Second class post is £2.20 for up to 750g.

Don't bother with eBay labels. Kitchen scales fine for this kind of weighing.

If you want to print postage then use the Royal Mail website here. I use it and then drop the parcel in the post at work. It does come up with £2.20 for this parcel. Or just write the address on with marker pen and take it to the post office. Most of my purchases seem to have been sent using the latter method.

Could you have selected Parcel rather than 2nd class Packet?

eBay postage labels are a right faff. Don't bother with it. I use my digital kitchen scales. If I have something that is very heavy I sometimes take it to the Post Office to have it weighed and get the best posting options. You can get a leaflet at the PO with all the posting prices inc worldwide.
