The move is expected to provide sellers with more flexible postal solutions
According to Ecommerce News, eBay has entered into a partnership agreement with InPost, the Polish e-commerce delivery company.
This means sellers on eBay now get access to InPost’s parcel lockers across the UK.
Earlier this year, the marketplace eBay rolled out an end-to-end fulfillment service for eBay business sellers in the country. The service promised faster delivery options, improved logistics management, and more streamlined processes.
In fact, the new partnership with InPost caters to the growing number of casual sellers on eBay. They require postal solutions that work around their jobs. In March, eBay published a report that stated that 67% of UK sellers have started selling pre-owned goods during the pandemic to earn extra cash.
The agreement gives these sellers access to InPost’s network of over 2.500 parcel lockers throughout the UK. They’re available 24/7 and are placed at locations such as train stations, petrol stations and supermarkets.
We’ve reported that eBay sold its business in Korea for $3 billion.
