Fast shipping speed and clear delivery dates are some of the first things buyers look for in listings, eBay says. To make shipping speeds more visible on the platform, eBay is replacing the Fast ‘N Free badge with a new message that shows shipping speed upfront, making it easier for buyers to identify listings with the fastest arrival.
The Fast ‘N Free badge highlighted listings with shipping speeds of 4 business days or less but didn’t include any other details that buyers look for. To help fast shipping speeds stand out to buyers, eBay is updating Fast ‘N Free to a simpler, more informative design.
This updated shipping message will include shipping speed, from next day up to 4 business days. The way eBay says it will estimate delivery dates isn’t changing and is still based on a seller’s handling time, location, and the delivery services offered. Here is an up-close example of what the badge looks like now:
There is no action required, and the eligibility criteria are not changing. If a seller’s listings showed the Fast ‘N Free badge, they will automatically update to the new message like shown above.
