SAN JOSE, Calif. – eBay has helped parts sellers reach buyers in the U.S. and around the world for years – with more than 310 million parts and accessories transactions taking place on eBay Motors to date. Now, eBay announced it is making it easier for its sellers to expand their global reach with its new global shipping platform.
 
eBay’s Global Shipping Program simplifies the process of shipping items to a number of countries worldwide, making an international sale feel as easy and straightforward as a domestic transaction, the company says. Sellers send their items to a shipping center in the U.S., which takes care of the international shipping, including the customs forms, remitting applicable import charges pre-paid by the item’s buyer, and providing tracking of the shipment. Enrollment in the program is free for sellers.
 
Auto parts sellers are already benefiting from the opportunity to go global, eBay says. Parts sellers such as Joel Cohen, owner of AutoPartsDirectToYou, report that they are already seeing the benefits of the program. Cohen, who has conducted business internationally prior to joining the program, said he has seen his international sales grow by 15 percent since opting in to eBay’s new program. Cohen says he also now has the peace of mind that comes with knowing that international taxes and duties are being calculated accurately ahead of shipping an item, avoiding the unforeseen fees that have plagued him in the past and allowing him to be competitive on price where he wasn’t before.
