The eBay Shipping Center

Sep 3, 2008
eBay's primary aim is to help sellers with every aspect of their eBay business. The eBay shipping center component was created mainly to help ensure that you get your purchased items to your customers in a timely manner, in the most efficient and economical way possible.

The eBay shipping center component will help you print shipping labels, will also help you figure shipping costs, and even help you with International shipping. Shipping information for all of the major shipping companies, including the USPS can be found through the shipping center. You can even purchase insurance for packages that will be shipped by the USPS directly through the shipping center.

One of the greatest features currently available on the eBay Shipping Center component is the ability to order free co-branded shipping boxes for USPS shipments. These boxes are delivered to you, at no cost! This will cut a great deal of your shipping expenses because you won't have to purchase your own boxes! There is also a great video that will teach you how to save time and money on your shipping, and whether you are a buyer or a seller, you can easily track your packages through the eBay shipping center as well.

Usually, trading assistants are responsible for every aspect of the auction, including shipping the product to the customer and collecting payment. For high ticket items, the person who hires

Trading Assistants generally get access to trading assistant marketing materials which are quite helpful. In order to become an approved trading assistant, you must have sold at least ten items in the last ninety days, have a feedback score of at least 100 with 97% positive feedback or higher, and your eBay account must be in good standing.
