eBay Plus is our new membership offering your audience free shipping and more competitive perks

As of 14th June, you can now give your audience free delivery and returns on 15 million products(1) with eBay Plus. The all-new shopping membership program for ebay.com.au, Australia’s largest online marketplace, is making it easier than ever for eBay users to shop tens of thousands of Aussie retailers, including leading brands Myer, to Target and Chemist Warehouse and more.

With a car or truck part sold every 3 seconds, a home décor item sold every 12 seconds, and 91% of products sold being brand new, eBay.com.au is where Australia shops first.

This year, we’re transforming the online retail space even further by providing a smarter and more seamless shopping experience with eBay Plus, which provides your shoppers with the freedom to compare and choose products from the best in Australian retail on ebay.com.au, without the burden of ongoing delivery costs.

It is estimated that one third of online shoppers spend a grand total of $730 million annually on delivery costs alone(2). Tim MacKinnon, Managing Director of eBay Australia & New Zealand, said the introduction of eBay Plus is a game-changer and will address the pain-point of delivery cost. The end result: Happier, more loyal and repeat shoppers for you.

“With exclusive deals, double flybuys points and premium service,” explained MacKinnon, “eBay Plus provides the best of Australian retail in one feature-packed membership, without the worry of delivery and return fees.”

After serving Australia for 18 years, eBay’s continued commitment to deliver the best shopping experience in e-commerce now offers even more reasons for your buyers to keep coming back for more.
