Australian courier service Sendle has partnered with eBay. Sellers can now link their eBay accounts directly with Sendle to create shipping labels and receive access to flat-rate pricing throughout Australia, with door-to-door service that includes pick-up at prices that are said to be significantly cheaper than the post office.
eBay sellers also have access to Sendle Premium, which provides an extra $1 off standard pricing and allows merchants to ship 500g satchels for only $6.95. A 2kg parcel from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast costs $9.95 with Sendle.
The partnership is targeted at small and medium-sized businesses and to launch the partnership, Sendle is giving away 25,000 free deliveries to the eBay seller community.
Director of small business & shipping at eBay Australia & New Zealand Amrita Blickstead said: “We hear from our sellers that shipping can be one of the biggest pain points in running a business. The integration with Sendle is designed to remove some of this friction, and will allow our 40,000 small-to-medium sellers to be more efficient and sell instantly without being locked into a contract or a minimum commitment.”
Co-founder and CEO of Sendle James Chin Moody said: “‘Sendle for eBay’ is levelling the playing field for small and medium-sized eBay sellers, giving them a new shipping option that is simple, reliable and affordable. With a deep understanding of eBay seller needs and working together with eBay, we are focusssed on eliminating frustrating pain points for both buyers and sellers, making the delivery process seamless.”
