Latest Tips for eBay Sellers

Ship packages not leaving home

Find out from your postal service provider how it works during COVID-19 and what contactless delivery services it offers.

E.g. you can also pack your shipment and pay for it online to send it without queuing at the post office. Call a courier via the postal service website or the application.

You can also send packages by courier services available in your region. E.g. DHL, UPS, DPD, FedEx and other companies.

Expand handling time

In the Shipping Details section of The Sell Your Item form select the required number of business days (1 to 30) in the Handling time drop-down menu.
