UPS announced today that it has expanded shipping options for US-based sellers on eBay to include international delivery.
“The UPS shipping tools allow eBay sellers to calculate costs, request a UPS pick-up, track shipments, review transit times and print shipping labels for international shipments, all at the point of transaction.”
Cross-border transactions make up a large and growing share of eBay’s revenues. The UPS deal is one way to help accelerate this trend. The other tool that eBay hopes will help cross-border transactions is the recent acquisition of Skype.
