Returning an unwanted ebay item using my own label?

I wish to return a small value item and want to use my own postage label.According to the Returns Help Page I can use my own tracker.However,the only option on the Return page under 'Select a Courier' is Royal Mail or Parcelforce(all three options cost more than the item value).There is no option to use 'Other'......

Has anyone else encountered this issue?

    Once you have a change of mind return open then it’s up to you to return the item, yes you can use your own courier but it will need online proof of delivery in case seller claims it doesn’t arrive.
