Fast ‘N’ Free Packaging with EBay

In this day and age, every penny counts. Most people are still reeling from the effects of the 2008 economic recession and are looking for ways to cut costs in any way that they can. Of course, this does not mean that we need to stop shopping. There is nothing wrong with making a purchase once in awhile of things that we do not necessarily need. But wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was some way to pinch pennies while we are at it? This is where EBay’s Fast ‘N’ Free Packaging comes in.

EBay is one of the largest online retailers in the world. Thousands of people buy and sell products on this cyber marketplace every single day. Recently, EBay introduced a feature called Fast ‘N’ Free Packaging. This means that postage is 100 percent free and the products are delivered to customers within three working days.

But what does this mean for sellers? In order to turn a profit from your sales, the starting bid needs to be raised. Again, Fast ‘N’ Free Packaging also offers speedy delivery. This is something that is hard to beat as with the Buy It Now option; you cannot be sure when the bidding will end. You will also have to take into consideration the amount of time it will take for payment to come through.

The important thing to do with this new feature offered by EBay is to read up on the terms and conditions in order to gain a full understanding of how it affects you and benefits you as a buyer or a seller. You would not want to make the mistake of letting down somebody who wants to buy something from you and risk compromising your perfect feedback score.

Fast ‘N’ Free Packaging was primarily produced by eBay when they realised that products with free shipping were far more likely to sell than those with a high shipping cost when visitor felt they were being tricked. Additionally in the early days eBay didn’t take a cut from the shipping costs and as such items would be given a very low value and high shipping costs in order to generate the most income for the merchant. This soon changed of course with eBay implementing  far stricter guidelines for maximum delivery costs.

The Fast ‘N’ Free Packaging system is eBay’s latest progression into the world of being a reputable online merchant. When visitors can purchase an item and be assured there are no hidden costs and the item will be delivered swiftly, eBay transitions from an online auction house to something more akin to an online retailer.
