eBay May Launch an Amazon-Style Fulfillment Service
By: Ina Steiner
EcommerceBytes 411 broke a story today about a new service eBay is looking into that could rival Amazon's FBA fulfillment service. As we told subscribers, eBay stated in a survey about the program:
"eBay is working to create fulfillment options that are faster, more affordable and more reliable for buyers. This next exercise will help us understand your preferences for a third-party fulfillment solution."
What do you see as the benefits of using a fulfillment service? Would it be more or less attractive to you if it were offered through eBay?
Many smaller sellers overcame their initial resistance to using Amazon FBA, and over the years, they have learned the pros and cons of outsourcing fulfillment. Feel free to share lessons learned - would you use eBay "FBE"?
