We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach when it comes to couriers.

Some couriers are perfect for sending large packages, some can get your package to its destination quicker than Flash, and some offer unrivalled customer service.

At the end of the day, every courier can ship your products.

It’s often an arduous process, picking the courier of your choice.

Especially when shipping is about as important in the sales process as having the right ecommerce platform.

With eBay, you have the luxury of selling on a pre-existing platform, so no excuses when it comes to shipping. You’ve streamlined your business to sell effectively on eBay, so you need to invest where it counts.

We’ve got the most helpful tips to get you started on picking your chosen eBay courier – read on and become an eBay shipping master!

Let your customers choose their eBay courier

There, we said it.

Customers love options – whether it be customising their handbag, or creating their own reusable coffee cup, they like the freedom to customise the product, the packaging, and their whole shopping experience.

This is true for shipping too.

Customers know their needs better than ecommerce stores do. They know whether they require their goodies by the end of the week, or by tomorrow afternoon.

Some customers want free shipping, some customers just want their products in their hot little hands as soon as possible, no matter what it costs.

The trick is you as the ecommerce store owner need to be able to provide your customers with those options.
