Mondial Relay and eBay: brand overview

Mondial Relay and eBay are two very popular brands that are now real references in their respective markets.

eBay: pioneer in online trading of goods and services

Founded in 1995 by Pierre Omidyar, eBay is an American online trading company used worldwide by several million active users. It was one of the first companies to popularise e-commerce by connecting buyers and sellers from a website.

The way eBay works is very simple: sellers offer their products, new or used, for sale via an auction system or at a fixed price. Buyers can bid on the products they wish to purchase or buy them directly by paying the fixed price.

Mondial Relay: one of the leaders in parcel delivery in France

Created in 1997, the French company Mondial Relay specialises in parcel delivery in France and Europe.

A true reference in its market, Mondial Relay has made delivery in relay points its strong point, with more than 12,000 partner merchants throughout France. The company also offers all other delivery solutions, such as home delivery or delivery to a locker.

Mondial Relay enjoys an excellent reputation among private individuals and professionals thanks to its economical, secure and fast offer.

Sending an eBay parcel by mondial Relay: the advantages

Sending an eBay parcel via the delivery company Mondial Relay has many advantages for eBay sellers, but also for individuals.

Preferential rates

eBay has negotiated exclusive rates that are reserved for its users when packages are delivered via Mondial Relay. This makes it easier for e-tailers to convince their customers to buy their products. eBay sellers can also boost their sales by offering free parcel delivery to buyers.

For example, sending a parcel weighing between 1 and 2 kg to a relay point in France, Belgium or Luxembourg costs only €4.99 including VAT. A parcel weighing between 15 and 20 kg will be charged €15.99 including VAT.

A fast delivery service

Mondial Relay offers a delivery time of three working days for all eBay packages in France. International delivery of eBay parcels takes between three and six days after the parcel is dropped off at a relay point.

An eBay shipping platform

eBay has developed an intuitive shipping platform specifically designed to efficiently manage a large number of shipments.

In practice, the eBay shipping platform allows users to purchase shipping slips and benefit directly from the rates negotiated with Mondial Relay. This is a real time saver as it is possible to print the postage notes online with the buyer's details.

Once the parcels have been franked, they can be dropped off at a relay point or collected at home. The tracking of deliveries is also integrated into the platform.

EBay Worldwide Relay: the disadvantages
