USPS, eBay Team Up for Co-Branded Shipping Supplies

NEW YORK The U.S. Postal Service and eBay today introduced free co-branded shipping supplies that will display the recognizable eBay and Postal Service logos.

Beginning next month, eBay users can order the newly designed free shipping supplies for priority mail service. Boxes will be available in three sizes along with tape.

The shipping supplies are another new addition to the online shipping service eBay and the USPS unveiled in February, which allows sellers to calculate rates, purchase postage and print shipping labels from their computer. With this new service, co-branded priority mailboxes will be delivered directly to an eBay member’s home.

The new shipping materials can be ordered exclusively through eBay’s site. There will be a link from the eBay shipping page to order the free co-branded boxes and tape.

“At any given time there are more than 25 million items for sale on eBay, worldwide. Shipping is integral to the successful completion of each transaction,” said Jeff Jordan, senior vice president of eBay North America, in a statement. “These new co-branded boxes will help make it even faster and more efficient for our community members to ship packages.”
