As part of the agreement, iShip.com will provide upfront information to eBay sellers and buyers regarding shipping costs and options. MBE will then provide sellers and buyers the brick-and-mortar infrastructure for packing and shipping. eBay and MBE also plan to implement a hold for inspection program where franchisees of MBE will provide a place for delivery and inspection of goods.
