Sendle Seduces Retailers With 2 Day eBay Delivery Guarantee
Parcel delivery provider, Sendle, has further intensified competition against Australia Post, launching a new two-day delivery guarantee for retailers selling on eBay.
According to The Australian, Sendle Co-Founder and Chief Executive, James Chin Moody, claims the program demonstrates the company’s ability to match Australia Post’s capabilities.
“Our reach is as good as Australia Post’s; we can send a parcel anywhere in Australia and in the world, and we are not trying to be everything for everyone. We are trying to be the best courier for small business in Australia”
“That means making things simple. Like pricing for example, we only have three price plans. Australia Post has 16, and on average a business can save 15 per cent per delivery on us”.
Recently launching a new low price guarantee for 500g – 25kg parcels, Sendle’s rates are reportedly ~70% cheaper than Australia Post.
eBay’s new opt-in program is available for retailers which can ensure item delivery within four days. In exchange, eBay pledges to make the retailer’s offering more visible, and promote product listings.
Shoppers are then given the option to filter items according to guaranteed delivery dates.
Taking on government-backed Australia Post, Sendle offers guaranteed two-day delivery (at no extra cost) between some capital cities and regional towns. As such, Sendle’s service provides incentive for retailers to register for eBay’s program.
Sendle’s new initiative is not the first time the company has rolled out a dedicated service for eBay retailers, and follows new iniaitives rolled out late last year.
