eBay today announced that it’s taking its partnership with FedEx even further by bringing its Valet drop-off locations to more than 1,600 FedEx Office stores across the United States. The stores will gradually be rolled out across the country over the next few months, a total of 1,600 locations will be available to eBay users.
eBay’s Valet program is aimed at people who want to sell their stuff on eBay without having to list it themselves, it saves them the hassle of taking pictures, writing a description and then monitoring it all the way.
The program enables users to send their stuff to experienced sellers on eBay who do all of the legwork for them, users just have to get their products in the hands of those sellers, and while the mail has proved instrumental in making that happen ever since the service was launched in 2014, creating countless drop-off locations across the country will certainly help make it easier for people to opt for this program.
Both companies first piloted the Valet drop-off idea in Los Angeles and Atlanta, clearly the model worked which is why they’re expanding it nationwide, they also found that many of the customers who used the Valet program were actually new to selling eBay. It’s essential for eBay to get those people selling products through its marketplace as well in order to improve its overall fortunes.
