Sendle has introduced their 2-Day Delivery Guarantee program to provide eBay sellers with the confidence to participate in eBay Guaranteed Delivery (eGD). With Sendle’s 2-Day Delivery Guarantee, you’ll be provided with a 2 day guarantee (from the time of pick-up) across selected regions and eligible product categories.
Sendle is one of Australia’s highest rated courier companies* delivering parcels to almost anywhere in Australia. Sendle is providing eBay sellers with a 2-Day Delivery Guarantee program to support the eGD program.
The 2-Day Delivery Guarantee will provide you with the confidence to participate in eGD, knowing that your items will be delivered on time, guaranteed. Sendle will credit the delivery cost of the parcel, if the parcel is not delivered within 2 business days after the pickup scan**. Please ensure that you upload your Sendle tracking number correctly into our system as Sendle won't be able to credit you back if the number is invalid.
Sendle’s 2-Day Delivery Guarantee does not include your handling time. This means if you have a handling time of 1 day, then your delivery guarantee will need to be specified as 3 days. For larger sellers who sell more than 200 parcels per month and use daily pick-ups from Sendle's couriers, their guaranteed timeframe will be specified as 2 days.

[QUESTION]Who sets up my eBay Guaranteed Delivery timeframe?[/QUESTION]
[ANSWER]You will be able to override eBay’s Estimated Delivery Dates with your own timeframes, provided by your carriers. For example, if you know that you can deliver an item in 3 days and are able to provide tracking, you will be able to update this in your postage rate tables.
