Selling on eBay with Shiply

Selling on eBay is one of the many ways I make money online. I have had an online eBay shop since the kiddies were born over 4 years ago. It has been kept me quite busy for years in a little way. I sell both pre loved items and brand new items on there and I make quite a few hundreds every few months. It is a great way of decluttering my home and making money by the side. A win-win!

However, having an eBay store can be time consuming especially when it comes to listing your items for sale. Thankfully, eBay has simplified this process, and it is now only a few clicks to list items on the eBay app. In the early days, listing items on eBay took forever and it was one of those jobs I never looked forward to. But these days, I am usually one listing 10 items or more (depending on how quickly I move) in 30 minutes.

If you buy or sell items on eBay, then you will know all about the troubles of dealing with large items that can’t go in the regular post. I have had my own fair dealings with large items that I have had to sell as collection only because I am unable to post them. Items like a baby bath stand, car seats, bicycles, baby walkers and many more.

Listing an item as a collection only automatically reduces the chances of the item selling. Only people who are nearby or able to travel to you would be interested. Which means you could have your collection only items listed for a very long time without any sort of interest. So you cam imagine my excitement to discover Shiply. For those who have never heard of Shiply, it is a large item courier service used by millions of people to ship large/bulky items.

How It Works

Using the Shiply service is quite easy, all you have to do is complete a form online and wait for the quotes to come via email. It is fast, easy and very affordable since Shiply’s delivery companies are already making similar trips. The quotes are usually up to 75% cheaper than standard rates, which is amazing for us eBay sellers. I like the fact that I can now get my large and bulky items delivered to my customers through Shiply. You can send pretty much anything legal through this courier service, even cars. It is the one of most convenient services available today.

Shiply is a blessing to business owners, especially eBay sellers that sell various items for a living. The convenience of it all ticks all boxes for me. I no longer have to list items as collection only with this amazing courier service. It has definitely made my life a lot easier.

  1. I used to sell on Ebay, regularly. Not so much now. it became more effort than it was worth at the time. I had a few bad experiences with customers and I stopped doing it for a while. I still sell on and off on there. I have a few pieces that I need to put up now, though I think I may give them a go once on there and then move them to a high end pre-loved clothing website.

    I want to sell the outfit from our eldest wedding 2 years ago. I am not going to use most of it again. I have a £96 top hat fascinator by Paul Smith worn once (obviously) I am not giving away for small money. I will also sell the dress which cost £200 from John Lewis and worn once. The rest such as shoes and bag, wrap etc. I have continued to use as I can.

    I do still buy alot from their. I like the fact eBay with businesses whilst paying the business directly, dont take the payment for 2 weeks from your bank so if it doesn’t turn up or isn’t right I can open a case without worrying how long it will take me to get my money back.

    I have not heard of Shiply before so will go and have a look, as that will be a useful website to bookmark.

    • I have had a few bad experiences with some sellers and buyers on eBay. I took it all as experience. I only send items on a recorded delivery to avoid any issues. I also like how eBay handles cases where you don’t receive the item. Shiply is a great service you should try for sure. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I have never heard of this service before but it sounds absolutely like a fantastic service to use! Thanks for sharing this with us!

  3. I’ve not heard of Shiply before but sounds like I’m going to be hearing about it much more in the future! I used to buy a lot of craft bits on Ebay.

  4. I had not heard of Shiply before. This is such a great service to help with shipping large items. Will need to look into this more.

  5. I have never sell on eBay although I thought about it many times. But I think Shiply is not available in India so won’t be able to use and see how it woks . But I can recommend it to my friend living in US.

  6. This seems like an ideal service to be honest. Shipping is the worst part of eBay in my opinion so it’s great to have these helpful things!

  7. I’ve been shopping on Ebay for sometime now and I can’t complain so far. Even though, Shiply seems to be such a nice courier company for those buying in bulk. I hope that they also provide international services since who knows, I might be shopping from your store sometime!

  8. That’s a great how-to post. I love Ebay, for all sorts of things. We’ve been selling the odd thing on Ebay for over a decade, now; unfortunately, I buy more than I sell!

  9. I have sold on Ebay before. It’s fun to get money, BUT I hate shipping things out. Ha! And people get me jaded with weird reviews, too.
