Should eBay UK has launched a "delivery services hub" where sellers can find postage discounts. eBay UK is working with several courier partners and will feature discounts on letters, packets and parcels, 2-Man/Large Deliveries, international, specialist/freight and same-day delivery.

For instance, sellers who put the Parcel2Go logo into their listings can receive a 5% discount code.

The eBay UK hub may be an effort to promote a variety of delivery services following the Royal Mail postal strikes last year that impacted deliveries during the crucial holiday shopping season.
