If you want to sell something on eBay and once you are done with the selection of the payment methods of Wholesale Suppliers, the next thing you need to understand is the shipping services, shipping methods and shipping techniques. First of all, you should know eBay partners with three major shipping carriers, which are FedEx, United Parcel Service (UPS) and United States Postal Service (USPS). EBay has integrated the services of these three shipping carriers with its own website to offer full services to its buyers and sellers. Among them the most popular is UPS. It is popular due to the great number of facilitations and discounts it offers to its users. Let’s discuss this service in detail.
