Have you registered for eBay international tracked postage service?
eBay’s International Tracked Postage Service is now available for all sellers, with options for both low and high volume sellers.
If you ship less than 10 international parcels a week then there’s a Post NL with Collect+ option with typical transit times of 4 – 8 working days depending on the destination country. For those shipping more than 10 parcels a week there’s a DPD option with typically 3 – 5 days delivery times. With both options the item is sent quickly and is fully-tracked until it arrives in your buyers’ hands.
Costs will vary according to the option that fits your business, but as an example you could send a 1kg parcel to Germany £5.52 plus VAT (based on 15+ rate card). For the low volume option eBay have published a full rate card available as a pdf“>. If you’re a higher volume seller final rates will depend on your projected volumes.
You’ll either need to sign up for the eBay Sendit service or if you’re a higher volume seller integrate a Metapack solution. Once done you’re all set to access eBay’s rate card for your international shipments.
