Ebay Considering Fullfillment Service for Sellers

Ebay is looking to start testing its own storage and shipping service for sellers.

This would allow sellers on Ebay to store products in an Ebay ran warehouse, and upon sales, the Ebay facility would fulfill the orders and manage the shipping of the products to buyers.

All of this comes in an effort by Ebay to be more competitive with Amazon’s fulfillment system that allows faster product delivery times and free shipping on all items.

And it will help facilitate faster delivery times from sellers in China where on Ebay, items are currently experiencing an average of 18 days’ for products to be delivered.
