Exclusive: eBay India launches PowerShip, a shipping (meta) service for sellers

eBay India has launched its own shipping service PowerShip, enabling sellers to use eBay India’s logistic service. With PowerShip, all a seller needs to do is sign-up for the program, package the item in eBay packing material and hand over the package to the assigned Logistic Service Provider during item pick-up.

With introduction of PowerShip, there will be changes in Selling flows, Checkout and My PaisaPay with effect from midnight of 5th June 2012.powership

“PowerShip includes Air mode, enabling quicker delivery of items to Buyers, Surface mode to manage volumetric and large size shipments and Cash On Delivery enabled through BlueDart in addition to Aramex for buyers who wish to pay for items on delivery. PowerShip sellers can avail special courier rates and ship to over 10,000 plus locations across 2500 cities and towns in India.”

Big deal? Well, this is where eBay brings the seller side to stick to the service and in the entire process, also improves on the buying experience (the PowerShip program partners include BlueDart, FedEx, DTDC and Aramex).

In short,a meta play that brings several partners – right from sellers to logistic providers under a common platform.
