eBay sellers get printer-less labelling

08 October 2018

Hermes has invested in a printer-less labelling solution with eBay, which will be available to UK eBay sellers when they purchase their postage via eBay delivery powered by Shutl.

Printer-less labelling simplifies the send process for the customer and increases efficiency for Hermes. Labels for sold eBay items can be paid for on eBay, and UK customers will then receive an email to their smartphone with a QR code and 6-digit authorisation code. The code can be used at one of 2,600 Hermes ParcelShops across the UK and the self-adhesive label is printed, free of charge. More Hermes ParcelShops will offer this service across the UK network in 2019.

Once the parcel is with Hermes, the Shutl 2-3 day service can be tracked all the way to the eBay buyer’s front door.

85% of all Hermes Send customers already use the Hermes ParcelShop network to send or receive parcels.

Mike Pitt, director shipping and logistics, eBay Marketplaces UK, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Hermes to deliver print-in-store postage labels. eBay sees this as an important milestone in helping to create speed and convenience in sellers’ busy lives, by making it as quick and easy as possible for them to buy postage and send items from the eBay platform.”
