EBay Lists USPS As Provider of Choice

Share this article:
The U.S. Postal Service reached an agreement with eBay Inc. to be listed as a delivery provider of choice on the San Jose, CA, auction site, the USPS said yesterday.


According to the USPS, eBay users will be able to print shipping labels, pay postage and check delivery status on items through the eBay Web site. EBay users also no longer will need to conduct transactions at post offices.


Early next year, the parties anticipate that these features will be integrated and accessible from sellers' eBay accounts. EBay also plans to include Express Mail rates in the eBay shipping calculator in late fall 2003.


USPS and eBay executives said they are continuing to explore ways to enhance shipping on eBay, including making it easier to ship internationally.
