eBay “Click and Collect” now live for large merchants

eBay are are switching on their new Click and Collect program for all large merchants who have capabilities to allow customers to pick up in their high street stores.

This was announced at the same time as eBay launched the Click and Collect trial with Argos and for retailers brings together the online experience with their offline presence – Rather than directly competing with retailers eBay actively drive traffic into retailers physical shops.

Of course you might wonder why someone would want to sell on eBay and the answer is quite simple. It’s all about letting consumers buy when they want, where they want, how they want with the shopping experience that they’re most comfortable with.

Click and Collect hmMany consumers (most of the country!) already shop on eBay and it’s common sense to allow them to buy your products on the site. However not all consumers are at home when the courier delivers and sometimes it’s just easier to pick up in store at lunch time or over the weekend.

eBay’s promotion will largely focus on two Parts and Accessories merchants taking part: Eurocarparts, GSF Car Parts. However if you want to try eBay’s click and collect but don’t need car parts then you can also buy footwear from Soletrader who are already live with click and collect on eBay.
