Best delivery experience

Grow your sales by offering tracked, fast, and free shipping

Today’s online shoppers expect to receive items sooner than later and for free. That’s why we show an estimated delivery date on all eBay listings. The sooner the delivery date, the more likely buyers will place a bid or make a purchase. And if items don’t arrive on time due to a reasonable shipping issue, we’ll make it right.

Manage your handling time via shipping settings

Handling time is a crucial aspect of fast shipping. You can specify your handling time and set your shipping preferences for the days of the week you ship in your shipping settings. We will not count weekends or holidays as your handle-by date if the carrier you specify in your listings doesn’t ship on those days.

  1. On the shipping preferences page, click “Edit” under “Set same business day handling times”.
  2. Select your “Working days” and the “Cut off time for same day handling” on the days you’re able to offer it.
  3. Click on “Save”.
