Will You Use This Multi Channel Fulfillment Service from eBay?
By: Ina Steiner
eBay is marketing a new service for sellers who want to have their items stored and fulfilled in the UK. "eBay fulfilment by Orange Connex" operates fulfillment centers in Leicester and Birmingham, and eBay said it launched the new service in response to growth in online shopping and SMB (small- and medium business) sellers looking to scale.
eBay UK is collaborating with global logistics firm, Orange Connex, to launch the service, which will enable sellers on eBay to offer next-day delivery, same-day handling, a fully tracked service, and late cut-off times to buyers.
eBay said sellers who use the service will benefit from full seller protection for "delivery-related mishaps."
It's not clear if the new service is an expansion of an existing fulfillment service targeted at overseas merchants selling to UK shoppers, or if it's a brand new service.
If Orange Connex sounds familiar, it's because eBay offered a service through the company called SpeedPAK
that helped sellers in China ship internationally.
One of the intriguing things about the new service is that it's open to multi-channel orders. "Storage, packaging and shipping will be taken care of by eBay fulfillment by Orange Connex - on eBay, your online shop or on any other selling platforms."
eBay has already launched fulfillment services in Germany and China.
