Shippit and eBay partner

by Angus Jones

Shippit, the last-mile delivery platform  across Australia, New Zealand and Asia, has announced a strategic partnership with eBay Australia, through which thousands of sellers on the platform will have access to best-in-class shipping and fulfilment solutions and services. 

The partnership will deliver optionality and deliverability for all customers, but for the first time the sellers with freight that is traditionally hard to handle will have the same shipping optionality as anyone else. Currently, eBay sellers can access a labels platform that enables them to quote, print and pay for labels for items up to 22kg. 

Through the new integration with Shippit, eBay sellers will be able to access a solution for heavier, bulkier items such as hardware, furniture and electronics. In the last financial year alone, 2.7 million deliveries – with a total value of over AUD$2billion – over 22kg were shipped through the Shippit platform. 

As consumer demand for quick, convenient and transparent delivery increases, the partnership with Shippit, enables eBay sellers to:
  • Ensure seamless post-purchase experiences with automated and reliable tracking notifications and dedicated delivery support;
  • Access flexible and fast fulfilment solutions to streamline pick and pack workflows and packaging decisions for consistent, error-free fulfilment;
  • Centralise controls and access to leading and specialised carriers plus exclusive delivery rates for flexible shipping options at checkout.

Shippit evolution

The integration continues a recent trend through which Shippit has been selected as a partner of choice and integrated into global eCommerce platforms including Wix and Shopline. Last year, meanwhile, Shippit announced a landmark partnership with Uber, through which thousands of retailers would have access to one-hour delivery.

“We’re incredibly excited to partner with eBay, bringing the power of Shippit’s last mile platform to its retailers who are looking to maximise their customers lifetime value, while not sacrificing operating margins” said Chris Weaver, Chief Commercial Officer at, Shippit. “Retailers, not just in Australia but across APAC, rely on Shippit daily to ensure that the delivery promises they make to their customers are kept. Shippit is a mission-critical part of the ecommerce tech stack for retailers, small, medium and large. Our data shows retailers with multiple carriers grow faster, and we’re excited to be able to provide those capabilities to eBay sellers in Australia, many of whom are small businesses.

“We’ve spent the last nearly-10 years building the industry’s most advanced shipping and fulfilment platform. But as the industry evolves, so too must Shippit. That’s why we invest heavily in research and development, and in partnerships and integrations. By investing in that, we’re investing in our customers and in our customers’ customers. Partnering with eBay today – as well as Wix, Shopline, Uber and all those that will follow – is an endorsement, from the industry, of our mission to shape the future of retail and bring retailers, carriers, and consumers closer together.”

“At eBay we are committed to delivering the most value possible to our sellers and that is why we selected Shippit to help power last mile delivery,” Marie Griffiths, Head of Shipping and Trust at eBay Australia, added. “Together with Shippit, our sellers are going to be able to build trust with their customers by meeting the delivery promises made – from the very first purchase. We can’t wait to see our sellers capitalising on this partnership as soon as possible.”

Over 100 million deliveries are booked through the Shippit platform every year. Since its launch in 2014, over $7.5bn worth of ecommerce orders have been fulfilled through Shippit’s platform, on behalf of thousands of retailers including Kmart, Cotton On, Woolworths, Total Tools, Temple & Webster.
