eBay and FedEx expand partnership in Canada
The Canadian technical advancement builds on eBay's long-standing cooperation with FedEx, allowing eBay sellers to capitalise on unprecedented e-commerce demand.
Canadian sellers will be able to use FedEx shipping services directly through eBay Labels, a proprietary label printing solution, according to an announcement made by eBay and FedEx. FedEx technology integration provides eBay sellers with a streamlined, on-platform experience for accessing FedEx local and worldwide shipping tools and services – all at advantageous pricing.
"Providing an exceptional selling experience to the hundreds of thousands of Canadians that leverage our global marketplace remains a top priority for eBay, and FedEx is key in delivering on this experience," says Robert Bigler, General Manager, eBay Canada. "With this extended FedEx alliance, we're making shipping even easier and more cost-effective for our eBay sellers, which in turn allows them to bring the best value and service to our marketplace."
This Canadian technical advancement builds on eBay's long-standing cooperation with FedEx in nations throughout the world, allowing eBay sellers to capitalise on unprecedented e-commerce demand. Prior to COVID, FedEx predicted that the domestic market in the United States will reach 100 million shipments per day by 2026, with e-commerce accounting for 96% of volume. This forecast is now likely to be met in 2022, with a similar trend expected in the Canadian market.
"FedEx enjoys a strong alliance with eBay," says Lisa Lisson, President of FedEx Express Canada. "FedEx and eBay share a commitment to helping our Canadian customers—including thousands of small and medium businesses—expand through innovation, growth, and e-commerce. We are excited to see how these enhancements improve our customers' fulfillment needs so they can continue to drive their business forward."
