Australia’s largest online marketplace offers a limited time offer that allows individual sellers to pocket additional money on their e-commerce platform. To make it easier for sellers to send their parcels and make them more secure, eBay offers contactless courier pickup from your front door through its new partnership with Sendle shipping company. Between the two, it’s a great time to sell some of the extra things you stuck to as you couldn’t get to your local post office during the coronavirus lock.
If you have items you want to sell on eBay, the company usually charges a small fee for listing on the website. Typically, the online marketplace also charges sellers a percentage of the item̵
This offer is especially available to sellers who have not previously sold any items on the website. To benefit from this, all you have to do is select the “Accept Offer” or “Receive Offer” option on the “Promotional Offers” tab in your eBay account page. Any item – with the exception of boats, cars and real estate – is authorized as long as you list it for auction or as a fixed price offer. If you want to sell multiple items, all items in the list must be in the same category (e.g. electronics). You can find more information about the campaign on this eBay page.
Easy collection and delivery with Sendle
As an alternative to the Australia Post or expensive courier options, eBay now offers Sendle as a direct on-site shipping option and provides quick access to door-to-door contactless pickup and delivery at no additional cost – a more convenient and secure option compared to queuing at your local post office.
With the direct eBay integration, shipping items with Sendle is easy. Once you’ve signed up for an account with the shipper, you can print mailing labels directly from the eBay Seller Hub. If you choose to send by Sendle, you can also book a free courier pick-up at a convenient time or drop off the package at one of over 600 pick-up locations across the country.
The shipping costs are also affordable. Prices start at AU $ 6 for deliveries to the same city, while national shipping starts at AU $ 7. Sendle also includes transit insurance as standard so that your package is automatically covered up to AU $ 300 at no additional cost. And since all Sendle parcels are delivered by courier by hand, you can track the delivery of your parcel from door to door. The shipping information is automatically uploaded to your Sendle account.
Sendle is also a climate-neutral company that balances its carbon footprint by investing in emissions-reducing projects. So you can send your items and know that you are contributing to the environment without having to queue up or spend a lot of money on shipping.
