eBay and UPS have launched a new partnership to expand shipping services on eBay’s global marketplace with the option to use UPS as an integrated service which will be available to all sellers by the end of September.

So far, the e-commerce marketplace has mostly used USPS and FedEx as shipping partners in the USA.Through the integration, UPS will be added to eBay Labels, available in both desktop and mobile, saving sellers time and money. It brings together their order details, customer information, label printing, and shipment tracking - all in one place. eBay Labels provides an easy way to handle shipping so customers can manage everything - from printing labels to scheduling pickup and more - without leaving their home or office.

Sellers will be able to profit from flexible and reliable shipping options to offer their customers the service that best suits their needs, whether that’s overnight or ground, and the possibility to ship six days a week including Saturdays (coverage where available), eBay explained.

Domestic UPS shipping options on eBay will include UPS Ground, UPS 2nd Day Air, UPS Next Day Air Saver, and UPS Next Day Air which will be available to all sellers later this month.
