eBay and FedEx have today announced that Canadian sellers will be able to access FedEx shipping services directly through eBay Labels, a proprietary label printing solution.
The integration of FedEx technology gives eBay sellers a seamless, on-platform experience to access FedEx domestic and international shipping tools and services – all at preferential rates.
FedEx enjoys a strong alliance with eBay, FedEx and eBay share a commitment to helping our Canadian customers—including thousands of small and medium businesses—expand through innovation, growth, and e-commerce. We are excited to see how these enhancements improve our customers’ fulfillment needs so they can continue to drive their business forward.– Lisa Lisson, President of FedEx Express Canada
This Canadian technology enhancement builds on the long-standing relationship between the two companies in countries around the world and empowers eBay sellers to harness the unprecedented demand in e-commerce. Pre-CO VID, FedEx projected the U.S. domestic market would hit 100 million packages per day by 2026, with 96 per cent of volume coming from e-commerce. This projection is now expected to be hit in 2022, with a similar trend anticipated for the Canadian market.
Providing an exceptional selling experience to the hundreds of thousands of Canadians that leverage our global marketplace remains a top priority for eBay, and FedEx is key in delivering on this experience. With this extended FedEx alliance, we’re making shipping even easier and more cost-effective for our eBay sellers, which in turn allows them to bring the best value and service to our marketplace.– Robert Bigler, General Manager, eBay Canada
