Shipping best practices

Expand all Collapse all
  • Offer free shipping

    Buyers love and expect free shipping when they shop online. They’re more likely to choose an item with free shipping over an item with a shipping charge even if the total cost is the same.

    Give buyers what they want and offer free shipping by simply adding the shipping cost into the item’s price.

    Learn how

  • Provide expedited shipping options

    Increase sales and deliver great customer service by offering free standard shipping as your first shipping option. Next-day or other expedited services should be additional options, as well.

    Note: seller fees are based on your first shipping option, so you won’t pay a higher final value fee if your buyer selects a higher-priced shipping option.

    See how to offer expedited shipping to your listings.

    Consider these carriers’ services, which provide next-day delivery:

    USPS FedEx UPS
    Priority Mail Express FedEx Priority Overnight Next Day Air Saver
    Priority Mail Express Flat Rate FedEx Standard Overnight Next Day Air (offers Saturday delivery)
    FedEx Priority Overnight One Rate
    FedEx Standard Overnight One Rate

    Consider these carriers’ services, which provide three-business-daydelivery (max estimated):

    USPS FedEx UPS
    Priority Mail FedEx Express Saver UPS 3 Day Select
    Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope FedEx 2Day UPS 2nd Day Air
    Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box FedEx Express Saver One Rate
    Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box FedEx 2Day One Rate
    Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box
    First Class Mail
  • Keep your shipping service promise

    Provide a great customer experience by using the shipping service class you promised in your listing. If you use a slower shipping service than the one you offered, your items may be delivered later than your customer expects.

  • Upload tracking information immediately

    Build trust with your buyers by keeping them informed. When you upload your item’s tracking information, your buyers can stay up-to-date on their order. Buyers feel at ease when they can keep an eye on where their package is or its estimated arrival.
