The new service, eBay Fulfilment Partner, will provide eBay sellers with the best price to pick, pack and deliver their eBay orders, with distribution by Australia Post’s delivery network.
eBay’s senior director of product and shipping, David Ramadge, said that with more than 53.2 million eBay parcels shipped domestically in last 12 months alone, this will be welcome news to the eBay seller community.
Fulfilio is a new business of Australia Post, providing e-commerce software, warehousing, “pick and pack”, and delivery services tailored for eCommerce merchants.
Fulfilio will provide warehouse locations across four major capital cities; Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.
Mr Ramadge said this would enable inventory to be located as close to buyers as possible, and therefore ensure faster fulfilment times.
“With a network of 40,000 Australian sellers and more than 11 million Australians visiting eBay each month, eBay is able to offer its sellers the best rates, helping them reduce costs, save time and remain competitive,” he said.
Mr Ramadge also said that by utilising the Fulfilio service, eBay sellers will avoid the “hassle” of e-commerce fulfilment to free up time for growing sales.
“At eBay our number one priority 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 meters 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.”
