Reply to "Calculating Irregular Package rates"

Sorry to awaken a sleeping dog,but I just can't seem to get it through my thick skull as to how the Auctiva format melds with the format used by USPS.
As I mentioned, USPS uses 4 parameters to determine a rate;whereas, Ebay and Auctiva ony require 3 i.e. LxWxH.I called ebay help and the tech informed me that all I needed to list an oversize tubular item with calculated shipping were those measurements with diameter used 2 times. Apparently they have a conversion formula of some sort that they use. I have a ton of items that I have been waiting to list but want to be sure I am using the correct procedure to use the calculated shipping feature. Should I say the heck with it or is there a way?
Ebay and Auctiva ask for LxWxH vs. Page 4 of USPS rate calculator which has the extra parameter Girth.
Was the ebay tech correct in advising me to use the diameter 2 times plus weight?
