Planning to declutter? Don’t throw your old stuff out – sell it on eBay instead! And if you happen to be in lockdown and concerned about how you’re going to ship it all to your potential buyers, worry not.
eBay Australia has taken the difficulty out of that equation by partnering with shipping company Sendle, making it not just easy but also safe for sellers to ship their parcels.
This partnership brings contactless courier pick-up right to your front door at no extra cost, and you won’t even need a printer to get all the shipping information on the package!
As an alternative to Australia Post or expensive courier options, eBay has integrated Sendle as a direct, on-site shipping option, providing quick access to contactless door-to-door pick-up and delivery with no hidden charges – a far more convenient and safe option compared to queuing up at your local post office.
It’s as easy as ‘sell, pack, Sendle’
With direct eBay integration, shipping items with Sendle is easy.
You just need to sign up for a Sendle account, then choose it as your preferred shipper in the eBay Seller Hub. By choosing to ship via Sendle, you’ll also be able to book a free courier pick-up at a convenient time, or alternatively, you can drop off the parcel at any of over 600 collection points spread across the country.
Shipping costs are affordable as well, with rates starting as low as AU$6.20 for same-city deliveries, while national shipping rates begin at just AU$7.65. Moreover, Sendle includes transit insurance by default, so your package is automatically covered up to the value of AU$300 at no extra cost. And because all Sendle parcels are hand delivered by courier, you’ll be able to track the delivery of your parcel from door to door, with shipping information uploaded automatically to your Sendle account.
Sendle is also a carbon neutral company, offsetting its carbon footprint by investing in projects that reduce emissions. So you can send off your items knowing you’re doing your bit for the environment, without needing to wait in line or spend a lot of money on shipping.

No printer? No problem
Most shipping companies insist you print out a shipping label for your package as it usually contains a barcode that helps the company keep track of deliveries. However, Sendle doesn’t need you to do any such printing.
You can just handwrite the buyer’s information on your package directly or on a sheet of paper you can stick to your box. Just be sure to add the seven-digit tracking number.
Just head to eBay’s postage information page to see how easy it is to sell some of that clutter you’ve got lying around and score some extra pocket money in the bargain. So head to eBay and start selling today!
