eBay has built an entire marketing campaign around the boxes sent to its customers with the Fill Your Cart with Color campaign. But it has no control over the packaging sellers use to send eBay orders (and every day there are stories about eBay orders arriving in Amazon boxes).
Now the marketplace is asking sellers to use its special eBay-branded holiday shipping supplies, which it sells on its site. In a post on Monday, the company wrote, “eBay-branded shipping supplies are the perfect way to deliver great customer service because they make your business appear more professional and align to the larger eBay brand.”
It’s enticing sellers with a giveaway: If they take a selfie of themselves holding an eBay order that is packaged with its eBay branded holiday shipping supplies between now and November 6th, they could win free shipping supplies.
