Most of us love the thrill of online shopping and opening packages. If you’re a fan of ordering online, you’ve probably seen the term “eBay Packlink” thrown around.

But what is eBay Packlink and why should you use it? 

Keep on reading to find out. 

What Is eBay Packlink Delivery?

eBay Delivery is a distribution tool powered by Packlink that helps sellers track their shipments. To encourage safe retail during the pandemic, Packlink partnered with eBay UK to provide consumers with collection and delivery from their homes at very low prices.

What’s more, Packlink manages all eBay shipments, as well as payments, technical issues, and customer service for purchases handled through the platform. 

It uses an API call to bring in sold products from your eBay account so that you don’t have to enter your data by hand. So you can sell your clothes or other items to earn more through this delivery feature.

But, how do you get access to this delivery service?

You can start using eBay Packlink delivery by simply logging in with your eBay credentials.

Why Should You Use Packlink?

Here are some of the benefits of using Packlink when selling/purchasing products on eBay:

  • Packlink automatically fills out your buyer’s name and your location on your postal label.
  • You can create and print a pre-filled packing list that contains details about your shipping items. 
  • Track information shows instantly in My eBay and Seller Hub for both the seller and buyer. 
  • You can see all of your shipments on the Packlink Delivery label platform. (prepared, in-transit, and received).
  • You can choose to have your shipment picked up, which is more convenient and saves on time.

Note: To send a package, simply put in the origin and destination postal codes, as well as the measurements and weight of the product. 

What Happens if My Package Is Larger Than Stated?

eBay Packlink gets a bit tricky when it comes to prices and sizes. If your shipment is larger or heavier than what is permitted for the price band, the carrier may charge you an extra fee

If you placed an order with the wrong weight or dimensions, we recommend cancelling it and placing a new one, to avoid any misunderstandings.

If the package delivery surpasses the allowed weight and size, the courier will most likely ask the sender or receiver to pick it up from one of their facilities. 

Note: include the weight and dimensions of the packaging too.
