    Shutl via Ebay 4th May 17 at 10:57 AM
    I saw this on the eBay boards yesterday and this morning got an email from eBay:

    Congratulations, we’ve selected you to take part in a trial of our new delivery service. eBay delivery powered by Shutl enables you to:
    Access more than 13,000 drop-off locations.
    Print labels and have tracking uploaded seamlessly into My eBay.
    Choose from a range of delivery options across UPS, CollectPlus and Hermes from as low as £2.70.
    Pay for all your delivery costs in a single monthly invoice.
    For more information on the service please look at our info page and FAQs. And, if anything goes wrong, Shutl will be on hand to deal with any queries from you and your buyers.
    Take the hassle out of delivery and try the new service today:
    When listing, select ‘eBay delivery - Shutl’.
    When you've sold an item, simply click Print postage label on the My eBay: Sold page and you'll be able to print your labels.

    There are some pretty decent prices and I have a UPS access point about 1/2 mile from me. Next day with UPS from £5.35 (and then it only goes up a few pence for larger weights) and it has £60 insurance cover.

    I've just done my first few and it was relatively straight forward.



    I haven't had the email on a secondary account but can confirm I've been able to print the postage from Shutl.

    Odd that they don't mention VAT, it can't be that few customers that would be bothered, it makes them look a bit less professional.

    I occasionally use UPS services to send but don't have an account with them any more. I use upstoday.com which has pretty good rates for one off sending when you drop off.

    I agree. I do think they are really in their infancy and if they are a part of ebay, it's understandable why they aren't doing what they should! On the plus side, the service is excellent and their Live Chat is very helpful. I've yet to have my first invoice, it should be coming any day now, I will see what they do with displaying VAT.

    I've had my first shutl invoice. Can you set it up to pay with paypal automatically?
    Rather annoying if not.

    Is the UPS option drop off only or do they do a collection from your premises?

    It's access point drop off, although they keep promising to have collection added. I live in hope.

    Is there a way you can view your Shutl 'bill' part way through the month?
    Or make a one off payment like you can with ebay fees?

    I'd like to make a withdrawal, but want to leave enough in to cover Shutl - only other way I can think is to go through and add up all transactions from this month?

    Yes, on your summary page you can click the "postage labels" link and it takes you to all your Shutl parcels.

    Thanks found it. Shame there's no running total for the month or a one off payment option.

    I have made a one off payment (to clear our end of year accounts). You should be able to do the same from your recent Shutl invoice.
