Multi-Channel Shipping Portal for Your eBay and Shopify Orders

Our new multi-channel eBay Shipping Portal allows you to pay for and print postage labels for your eBay and Shopify orders in one place. 

How it Works 

  1. Log in to your eBay account via the eBay Shipping Portal 
  2. Go to the Channels tab and connect your Shopify store
  3. Refresh orders in the Orders tab to view your most recent orders from all channels

In the Orders tab, you can either buy postage labels in bulk or print labels individually. eBay will show the cheapest postage option per order based on the parcel’s weight, dimensions and the buyer’s location.

Australia Post Price Change

We have changed Australia Post’s pricing on our labels platform from 1 March 2021. The pricing is now aligned with Australia Post retail rates. You can see the new pricing on the Seller Centre.

Delivery Estimates Optimisation

We estimate delivery dates for your listings using the eBay machine learning model based on historical tracking information, buyer/item location and postage service. 

We understand how important it is for your listings to display accurate delivery dates. We’re continuing to improve this model to display estimated delivery dates with greater accuracy. 

To help us, it's important you keep uploading valid tracking. Tracking information ensures we can optimise the model for more accurate delivery estimates.

Rate Table Updates

Currently, eBay rate tables let you choose a relevant standard or express postage services for your listings, which buyers see. 

We’re improving rate tables, so you have more control over the postage services for your listings. From April, you’ll be able to use your rate tables to choose which postage services buyers see on your listings at a carrier level. Where you offer an expedited/standard postage service in your rate table, you can select which service customers get to see.
