A new partnership between eBay and InPost brings more options to both buyers and sellers on the eBay marketplace in the UK. InPost is Europe’s only end-to-end parcel locker provider and they have been strategically located in mostly urban areas where there is likely to be the most amount of human traffic to add to the convenience of utilizing locker delivery.
What is interesting about this integration is it means eBay sellers will be able to deliver their items to an InPost locker which will then be processed through their system for onward delivery to the buyer’s home.
“We’re thrilled to have partnered with eBay to ensure that marketplace sellers have access to a convenient, flexible, and time-saving delivery option that genuinely works in tandem with their normal routines. We see this as just the first step as InPost are continually delivering new and exciting products that companies like eBay can use to improve the lives of their buyers and sellers.
“We know online marketplaces such as eBay offer an important revenue stream for many entrepreneurs and casual sellers – particularly in the run-up to Christmas, and today’s partnership ensures that those sellers have access to quick and easy ways to get their products to buyers.”Jason Tavaria, CEO, InPost UK
InPost Gives eBay Sellers More Choice
The eBay and InPost partnership will be accessible to marketplace sellers through the eBay delivery platform on the marketplace and is powered by Packlink.
Currently, they have roughly 2,500 lockers in the UK and aims to have the largest automated parcel machine networks in the UK, with ambitions for around 3,000 APMs by the end of 2021 and over 10,000 by 2024.
“At eBay, we’re committed to providing the right tools and levers to streamline the selling experience and to help our sellers make more money and boost sales. Our partnership with InPost ensures that sellers have greater choice in the delivery options available to them, presenting a convenient method of postage which can save both time and money – which is all the more crucial during this busy trading period.”Murray Lambell, General Manager, eBay UK
