Better Shipping for eBay Canada

By Shippo

eBay Canada Shippo shipping

Shipping in the 21st century hasn’t adapted to how we buy and move goods around the world yet. Ecommerce is the fastest growing market in the world, but shipping costs, outdated systems, and opaque processes are holding businesses back. With growing consumer expectations for “free and fast” shipping, sellers need help to managing shipping from the marketplaces and platforms they sell on.

That’s why we are excited to work with eBay. They are committed to creating a better shipping experience for sellers, starting at the root of the problem – making the complexity of shipping disappear.

Shippo is an enterprise software technology that lowers the barriers of shipping for sellers by working with the platforms they’re on. Starting today, we are the official shipping solution for eBay Canada. We are replacing the existing PayPal shipping label service on eBay Canada as the default shipping platform for Canadian sellers.

eBay will rely on Shippo’s platform to connect sellers with carriers such as Canada Post for all their shipping needs. Our end-to-end shipping solution is tied directly to the eBay platform – importing order information and syncing tracking data back to eBay for updating buyers.

eBay Canada sellers will be using Shippo’s shipping dashboard to access discounted shipping rates, print shipping labels in bulk, automate international documents, facilitate returns and many other shipping features. Using Shippo, sellers will now also have the ability connect all their online storefronts and add their own carrier accounts to ship from one place.

With ecommerce continuing to get more competitive, we believe that shipping should be a competitive advantage for businesses. Our technology connects both marketplaces and sellers to carriers. From warehouses and delivery trucks today to hyperlocal services and drones tomorrow, Shippo will always connect you to the best delivery option available.
