One of the challenges of E-bay sellers is shipping products at a low cost, especially when dealing with several locations. There is no real solution for this except to find the lowest shipping rates possible. Fortunately, Shiply is a cool web service that allows you to find the cheapest rates by matching your deliveries to available couriers who are already making similar trips across Europe.
To start using Shiply, just type in the from-and-to destinations then select your product category. Then set options such as whether your product is an eBay item or not while setting item size, and item weight. Click next to add specific pickup and delivery locations as well as preferred dates of delivery. Once all these are entered, you can select from a list of quotes from different couriers. You are always assured of the lowest prices because of the reverse-auction format which allows you to save up to 75%. In addition, the e-mail alert feature allows you to check for offers without filling up the form every time.
Aside from its core functions, courier companies can actively bid by searchinl g for deliverable items that they can bid on. Couriers can search by country, locality, or by route. If the client like your offer, he can easily accept your bid to complete the transaction.
Shiply is a useful tool especially for eBay sellers who want to gain as many edge as possible against their competition. Being able to deliver goods at minimum shipping rates allow them to get a healthy profit margin or provide aggressive pricing.
