Australia’s biggest online marketplace is making it easier and safer for sellers to ship their parcels, thanks to its partnership with shipping company Sendle. 

eBay is now offering contactless courier pickup from your front door, making it a great time to sell off some of those extra bits and bobs you’ve been holding on to because you couldn’t get to your local post office during the coronavirus lockdown.

As an alternative to Australia Post or expensive courier options, eBay has integrated Sendle as a direct, on-site shipping option, providing quick access to contactless door-to-door delivery at no extra cost – a far more convenient and safe option compared to queuing up at your local post office.

No-fuss pickup and delivery with Sendle

With direct eBay integration, shipping items with Sendle is easy; once you’ve signed up for an account with the shipper, you can print address labels straight from the eBay Seller Hub. By choosing to ship via Sendle, you’ll also be able to book a free courier pick-up at a convenient time, or alternatively you can drop off the parcel at any of over 600 collection points spread across the country.

Shipping costs are affordable as well, with rates starting as low as AU$6 for same-city deliveries, while national shipping rates begin at just AU$7. Moreover, Sendle includes transit insurance by default, so your package is automatically covered up to the value of AU$300 at no extra cost. And because all Sendle parcels are hand delivered by courier, you’ll be able to track the delivery of your parcel from door to door, with shipping information uploaded automatically to your Sendle account.

Sendle is also a carbon neutral company, offsetting its carbon footprint by investing in projects that reduce emissions. So you can send off your items knowing you’re doing your bit for the environment, without needing to wait in line or spend a lot of money on shipping.
