EBay launches guaranteed three-day delivery in US

Elbert EdwardsMar 22, 2017

In addition, the company will also provide free shipping for millions of eligible and customers are able to filter items that guaranteed for one, two or three days shipping.

The Delivery Guarantee program just ensures that your products arrive in three days or less. eBay claims that 67 percent of purchases already ship free, and 63 percent are delivered in three days or less. Typically, Amazon doesn't guarantee delivery within a specific timeframe, however, so eBay's service is a bit different.

Beginning in the US this summer, eBay will allow some sellers to offer a "3 days or less" option, which will enable buyers to filter search results by items that promise delivery within a set period of time.

If the item doesn't make it by the delivery date, eBay says the consumer can request to have shipping costs refunded. If the item arrived late and you no longer need or want it, you'll be able to return it at no cost.

eBay announced a new program today, but it is scrambling to answer a simple question, but one that is crucial for sellers to understand.

This news comes as the world's largest retailer, Wal-Mart, announced earlier this year that it will offer free two-day shipping on more than 2 million items, when shoppers spend at least $35. If it was free, they will get a coupon toward their next eBay purchase.

Location-specific shipping rate tables will let sellers provide more accurate shipping charges to buyers. Frankly clicking 20 listings and then checking the additional shipping options to discover if they offer a next day courier service is too much like hard work.

For sellers who know the cost of shipping from their location to different regions in the USA, and are willing to set up and maintain shipping rate tables, this new tool will allow you to more accurately tailor shipping charges to your buyer. There is no cost to sellers to join, but "sellers must meet a required set of shipping standards to participate", eBay said.
