Competitive pricing policy.
ebay.com.au has announced a partnership with Fulfilio, a new Australia Post business that offer a national fulfilment network to its sellers. The new service, eBay Fulfilment Partner, is claimed to provide eBay sellers with, “the best price to pick, pack and deliver their eBay orders.”
More than 53.2 million eBay parcels were shipped domestically in the last 12 months.
Fulfilio is a new business of Australia Post, providing eCommerce software, warehousing, pick and pack, and delivery services tailored for eCommerce merchants. Fulfilio will provide warehouse locations in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, enabling inventory to be located as close to buyers as possible, ensuring faster fulfilment times.
With more than 11 million Australians visiting eBay each month, eBay is offering its sellers what it said are the best rates, helping them reduce costs, save time and remain competitive. For example, on 500g parcels sellers will pay rates as low as $5.74 for pick, pack and delivery of cross-town service, and $6.83 for interstate service, saving sellers up to 30% on fulfilment costs, based on industry averages across pick, pack and last mile costs.
By utilising the Fulfilio service, eBay sellers will avoid the hassle of eCommerce fulfilment to free up time for growing sales.
eBay senior director of product and shipping, David Ramadge said the number one priority at eBay is to support the 40,000 Australian businesses that operate via ebay.com.au. “In this partnership with Fulfilio and Australia Post we are giving our sellers Australia’s most comprehensive fulfilment network with over 57,000 square metres of storage and distribution space across the country.
“We will continue to deliver sellers the lowest cost to pick, pack and fulfil their eBay orders so they can put their inventory closer to their customers and spend less time packing and more time selling,” he said.
