Los Angeles Expansion Announced Just in Time for Spring Cleaning

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, eBay and Shyp announced an extension of their shipping
integration into the Los Angeles market to further help sellers from
coast to coast get organized just in time for Spring Cleaning. Building
on the success from initial pilots in New York, Chicago and San
Francisco, the expansion will help equip consumers with an easy,
optimized selling and shipping experience. Shyp will pick up the items
you sold within 20 minutes, professionally pack them, and mail them
straight to buyer on your behalf.


eBay & Shyp Make Online Selling Easy

Together, eBay and Shyp are solving one of the biggest pain points of
selling online — shipping. Partnering with Shyp is another way that eBay
is making the online selling process easier for everyone — from
first-time, casual sellers, to small business owners and entrepreneurs.
Shyp’s pickup and packaging fees will be waived for eBay sellers through
June 30, so they can enjoy at-home item pickups and expert packaging
free of charge, visit: www.ebay.com/shyp.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership with Shyp to make selling on
eBay even easier,” said Vincent Payen, Head of Consumer Selling for eBay
North America. “Coupled with the eBay Valet mail-in and drop-off
programs, we’re continuing to provide our sellers with tailored
experiences that make the selling and shipping process on eBay seamless.
With access to eBay’s large online shopping audience, customers have the
best chance to get top dollar for their items along with a simple way to
both declutter their space and earn extra money this spring.”

Season for Selling: Spring is the Perfect Time to Get Organized & Sell

Spring cleaning season is upon us, and studies have shown that on
average, the American consumer has thousands of dollars worth of goods
sitting unused around the house. With a global community of over 160
million active buyers, there is always an eBay shopper in search of the
apparel, electronics, other household items, and one-of-a-kind items
that you’re looking to let go of this spring. Now, with Shyp, you can
take comfort in a quick & seamless end-to-end selling experience on eBay.

“We’re so excited to expand our integration with eBay to streamline the
shipping experience for sellers in our markets,” said Kevin Gibbon, CEO,
Shyp. “Starting Shyp was inspired by my experience as an eBay seller —
my goal was to create a service catered to their unique needs. We’re
proud to offer sellers this optimized experience, and it’s thrilling to
come full circle in such a personal way.”

How the eBay and Shyp Integration Works

Shyp will pick up the items you sold, professionally pack them, and mail
them straight to the buyer on your behalf. eBay sellers can connect
their eBay account to the Shyp app to see an itemized feed of their
recently sold items. They can then select items they’d like to ship, and
request a pickup. Within 20 minutes, a Shyp courier will arrive at their
door to take care of the rest.

In addition to offering expert packaging, Shyp also compares prices
across carriers to find the lowest available shipping rate on the
seller’s behalf. Once picked up, Shyp automatically marks sellers’ items
as ‘Shipped,’ notifies the buyer, and updates sellers with tracking info
within the same day of a requested pickup. Simply download Shyp from the
App Store or Google Play and sync your account to get started.
