eBay sellers connecting with shoppers last week set a record-breaking pace for shipping, using USPS products and services to send more than 1 million packages on Wednesday. And that daily pace continues to increase.
eBay volumes already are up 16 percent this holiday season compared to last year, and ever-increasing numbers of eBay sellers are discovering that shipping online is as easy as selling online — when they choose the ultimate in shipping convenience offered at the USPS Shipping Zone on eBay.
The Shipping Zone allows eBay sellers to purchase and print shipping labels, insure their items, track delivery and request free carrier pickup — all from the convenience of their own computers. And, just as easily, eBay sellers can go online to order free Priority Mail co-branded boxes to meet their shipping needs.
“eBay continues to be a wonderful partnership for the Postal Service,” says Mary Anderson, USPS Executive Lead for eBay. “And, thanks to the dedication and hard work of postal employees around the country, we continue to be the preferred shipper of choice for eBay buyers and sellers.”
To register for an account and order USPS/eBay Priority Mail co-branded boxes, customers must be registered eBay users. And, as easy as shipping prices are on customer pocketbooks, the co-branded Priority Mail shipping boxes are easy on the environment: The boxes have achieved Cradle to Cradle Certification.
