It was announced by eBay that this summer, it will be rolling out a new Guaranteed Delivery shipping policy, where they offer three day or less shipping for 20 million eligible items sold on the site.
With this program, shoppers can filter results by items available for one day and two day delivery times. The Guaranteed Delivery program isn’t going to result in any extra costs for the sellers, but eBay says its sellers have to meet “a required set of shipping standards” to be included.
“While the majority of items on eBay already ship within three days or less, as well as for free, Guaranteed Delivery will give shoppers even faster delivery options and the confidence that their items will arrive on time,” says eBay Senior Vice President Hal Lawton in the release announcing the new policy.
If an eBay purchase isn’t delivered by the guaranteed delivery date, the buy will be able to request a refund on the shipping fees, or if the shipping was free, the buyer will receive a coupon to be used toward the next eBay purchase. As an additional option, buyers can return an item that doesn’t ship on time at no cost to them.
The new Guaranteed Delivery policy is planned to launch in the US this summer. So far though, the exact dates were not shared.
