eBay offers fulfillment services in some countries, and on Friday, it reminded sellers in the UK about its “eBay fulfilment by Orange Connex” solution.
“eBay fulfilment by Orange Connex is a dedicated storage and logistics solution for small businesses, combining end-to-end inventory management with an exceptional delivery service.
“Or to think of it another way, it’s a solution that levels the playing field by enabling you to ship orders as fast as large retailers, while freeing up your time to focus on the day-to-day running (and growing) of your business.”
One benefit that might catch sellers’ attention: an improved seller performance score. eBay explained, “All INR related issues are protected once you join the fulfilment programme.” (INR refers to Item Not Received claims.)
Other benefits eBay UK touted included full tracking; seller protection; next-day delivery and weekend operations; and international shipping. It also pointed out the program offers multi-channel capability: “You do the selling, and we’ll take care of the storage, packaging and shipping of your products on eBay – and on any of your other selling platforms including your own website, if you have one!”
