Shipping Options

UPS®: Guaranteed shipping that covers the world

UPS takes package delivery to the next level through advanced shipping technologies, local accessibility, global delivery reach and integrated shipping platforms. Whether you need your package delivered the next day or next week, UPS has a service that fits your needs.

Keep in mind that whichever shipping service you choose it should reflect the stated handling and shipping time from your listing. For example, if your item stated a 3 day shipping & handling time, make sure to choose the service that guarantees it will arrive on time. Still need help? In most cases, eBay will provide additional shipping guidance when you list your item to help you choose the best shipping option.

Convenience

Print. Pack. Ship. UPS makes it easy

As a global leader in shipping technology, UPS makes it easy for eBay sellers to manage all aspects of shipping—from purchasing postage to guaranteed delivery.

  • Pack and ship your package at one of 3,000 The UPS Store™ locations, or
  • Drop your package at one of the 68,000 UPS drop-off and retail access points

Insurance

Peace of mind for you and your buyers

Your domestic and international UPS packages are automatically protected against loss or damage with automatic insurance up to $100. But occasionally, you may need a little more coverage for higher value items. In these cases, the amount of insurance you need is based on declared value coverage—or how much your item is worth.

Here's how it works

After your item sells, simply input the value of your item (what it sold for) when prompted during the label printing process. If your item’s value is under $100, shipping insurance is automatically included at no extra cost—there’s nothing further for you to do. If your item is valued at over $100, you’ll be given the option to add declared value coverage, which will then be added to your total label cost on UPS.com.
