Shippo is the exclusive shipping label printing partner for eBay Canada (similar to Packlink in the UK). Today, eBay Canada and Shippo announced a renewed partnership to offer improved shipping services for Canadian sellers on eBay.
Collaboration between eBay Canada and Shippo began in 2017 when the parties joined forces to offer eBay sellers the ability to easily purchase shipping labels. Sellers receive easy access to Shippo services and a streamlined process for purchasing shipping labels for all their orders on the eBay platform. Today’s launch expands on the partnership by opening up additional shipping carriers and new payment options including major credit and debit cards, in addition to PayPal, the previous default method.
The new carriers include Canada Post, UPS, and FedEx for domestic orders in Canada and DHL Express for international, in addition to the previously listed carriers. However,the new terms of the partnership allow eBay Canada sellers to use any of Shippo’s supported carriers plus any new ones added in the future.
The new payment options add credit and debit cards payments to the current PayPal only offering.
“eBay is committed to helping our Canadian sellers succeed. Partnering with companies like Shippo to bring efficient operational and shipping features to our platform is just one of the ways in which we’re continually enhancing our seller experience. We want our sellers to focus on growing their businesses and getting their items to buyers quickly and easily, which is why we are excited about Shippo’s new offerings and enhancements that further simplify the shipping and fulfillment processes.”
