eBay UK promote “Fast ‘n Free” shipping

No primary category set

Over the holiday period in the US eBay tested a new logo when the listing offered free shipping and there was a high probability that the item will be delivered within 4 business days or less. Whilst I’ve never seen the logo displayed on the View Item page on eBay UK I’ve just spotted it at checkout.

There’s no delivery truck on the UK checkout “Fast ‘n Free” message, but it does highlight that shipping should be fast and the item should be delivered within a few days (in this case for an item purchased today eBay tell me that it should be delivered by Monday).

I do like this, although I was hoping the item might be delivered tomorrow or Friday as it’s shipping ParcelForce 24 hour… I’ll let you know when it actually arrives. Regardless it’s good to know that eBay are highlighting sellers who will ship fast.

I should mention that I saw the eBay Fast ‘n Free logo on a purchase from an eBay Outlet, let us know if you spot it on non-Outlet listings next time you’re shopping on eBay.

Edited to add: eBay have told us that this is being shown in error on a small number of listings in the UK. It should be fixed soon.

    ok for ebay to push it some silly bugger has to pay for it somewhere down the line

  3. ebay actively encourge the sellers race to the bottom,
    ebay sellers are like lemmings jumping off the cliff, only ebay are giving that extra little nudge to those teetering on the edge
    you can cut prices ,send post at no extra cost to buyer[free?],
