eBay Plus: eBay's answer to Amazon prime in Germany.
Click and Collect: Forming symbiotic relationships with other retailers (like Argos in UK, Woolworths in AU) to allow buyers to collect packages in time and place convenient to them.
Global Shipping Program: Responsible for expanding inventory to international buyers and seamlessly intermediating international shipping on behalf of sellers.
Global Label and Tracking Platform: Partnering with carriers all over the globe to provide postage (label printing, rates, payment) and tracking solutions to eBay sellers.
Shipping Science: Uses advanced machine learning techniques to predict an item's weight and dimension, simplifying the item listing flow for casual C2C sellers, predicts how soon a package will arrive powering programs like Fast and Free.
