eBay Expands Local Pickup Option

eBay published the following post on the eBay Announcement Board on Tuesday:

Great news, sellers! Now you can offer local pickup as an additional service to your buyers, no matter which shipping option (calculated or flat-fee) you choose.

Offering local pickup is an easy way to avoid costly shipping charges (especially on large, bulky items). It also gives your buyers another convenient delivery option.

Simply check the “Offer local pickup” box after selecting your shipping option (you can also choose to offer local pickup only). Local pickup will be clearly shown as an option to shoppers in your listing. Anytime a buyer chooses local pickup, just be sure they complete the order through eBay checkout – then work out the details of pickup through Messages in My eBay.

Once you’ve selected your shipping option, it’s easy to add local pickup, too.
